Back-to-School Sleep Hacks

On Tuesday, August 2, Mattress Firm hosted a Twitter chat to discuss back-to-school sleep hacks and help parents learn more about how to get ready to start a new fall schedule. In case you missed it, here are a few things we learned from the chat.

Grateful for our friends at @Protect_A_Bed and our brilliant sleep health expert @PedsSleepDoc for joining us tonight! #B2SHacks #gno — Mattress Firm (@MattressFirm) August 3, 2016


 


Routine is Important

A10. One tip for B2S success? Set & live by a routine that works for your kids' personalities #gno #B2SHacks — Jyl Johnson Pattee (@jylmomIF) August 3, 2016


A good night’s sleep starts w/ good nighttime routine. Everyone sleeps better with a routine, kids and adults. #B2Shacks #GNO — Sujay Kansagra, M.D. (@PedsSleepDoc) August 3, 2016


 Routine can be any activity that child finds relaxing and does not involve bright light. Should last ~20min #B2Shacks #GNO — Sujay Kansagra, M.D. (@PedsSleepDoc) August 3, 2016


TV is out at least one hour before bedtime and she can read a bit when she's in bed. #gno #B2SHacks — Guapologa (@Guapologa) August 3, 2016


 


Start Preparing Your Child Now

Plan to push bedtimes back in 15 to 20 min. increments a week ahead of time so that it will be less of a shock on 1st day — Protect_A_Bed (@Protect_A_Bed) August 3, 2016


 Adjusting the sleep cycle is probably the single most important thing you can do to prepare! #gno #B2SHacks — Sujay Kansagra, M.D. (@PedsSleepDoc) August 3, 2016


Remember to start early! The body's internal body clock can't shift too fast. #B2Shacks #gno — Sujay Kansagra, M.D. (@PedsSleepDoc) August 3, 2016


@MOMITFORWARD A9: Lots of research showing that getting adequate sleep = better grades #B2Shacks #gno — Sujay Kansagra, M.D. (@PedsSleepDoc) August 3, 2016


 


Begin Your Days Off on the Right Foot

 #B2S morning routines are just as important as bedtime routines. Don't forget to stick to a wake-up schedule! #B2SHacks #gno — Mattress Firm (@MattressFirm) August 3, 2016


prepare everything ahead of time, like 2 have first 2 weeks back planned with meals, clothes, schedules #B2SHacks #gno — Katie Sexton (@kasexton) August 3, 2016


 


Don't Skip Sleep on the Weekends!

There is only so much sleep that can be “caught up” on the weekends. Best to keep steady schedule #B2Shacks #gno — Sujay Kansagra, M.D. (@PedsSleepDoc) August 3, 2016


@MomItForward For an effective #B2S sleep schedule, weekend bedtimes shouldn’t differ from school night bedtimes. #B2SHacks #gno — Mattress Firm (@MattressFirm) August 3, 2016


A9. We encourage our kids to get as much sleep as they need no matter what #gno #B2SHacks — Jyl Johnson Pattee (@jylmomIF) August 3, 2016
