The majority of people will look forward to Christmas; cautions are raised over children having late nights through all the excitement.  Are you worried that your children are not going to get enough sleep on their mattress this Christmas.

According to various research it has shown that for children the aftermath of Christmas is really hard for them to get back into a normal sleeping pattern after it has been disturbed. Obviously this time of year is extremely exciting for them but it is a time of stress and chaos for parents. All normality goes out of sync but for children they require a routine in order to get the vital sleep they need to function, grow and develop.

Here are some top tips for keeping them bright and bushy:

  • As much as you can try and keep regular hours and although on Christmas eve it can be hard because children are keeping awake in order to try catch a glimpse of Santa! For as much as you can try and set a routine with your children of going to bed at a set time and getting up at a set time.
  • Ensure that a restful sleeping environment is created which is calm, quite and feels safe to the child. Try and keep sparkling tinsel, flashing lights and other exciting Christmas decorations to other parts of the home. Children’s rooms should be kept at the right temperature too.
  • Over this period children will be bought selection boxes, sweets and other indulgent edible gifts but make sure they do not eat too much. Too much food especially eaten late at night can really mess up their sleep pattern.
  • Keep in mind these top tips and your children should have a more pleasant Christmas and an easy aftermath when they try and recover in time for back to school.

Did you know - a new junior bed and a junior bed spring mattress can make an ideal Christmas present for young grandchildren - it's  a very practical gift as well. Take a look at / search for the My Big Bed range of junior beds - I've seen these myself in stores such as B & M Bargains or the Big Red Warehouse (online) for as little as £39.99 for certain models.
