Study Confirms Putting Kids To Bed Early Improves Mom's Health

A woman passes through the most tiring period of her life time from the moment she turns to a mother. There are more added duties she is supposed to do especially at night times with the new born.

Its not quite a cup of coffee to put the new born to sleep on time but a recent study confirms that mom's mental health is very much affected by the baby's sleeping time.
Jon Quach, the lead author of the study, spoke to Today about the findings. “So mums and dads, getting kids to bed early is not just great for them. It’s good for you, too,” he said.

It maybe harder at the initial stages but by the time the Child turns to 4 or 5 years ,it should be developed as a routine to put them to sleep on time. You would find number of sleeping charts showing the optimal sleeping time with age but to put the frame in nutshell, sticks to 8- 8.30pm as bed time for your child.

There is also proof that the earlier the kid is to bed, the better they sleep and wake up healthier. So its a double bonanza where both the mom and child benefit through early to bed strategy.

How to develop early bed routine?

According to the National Sleep Foundation, the blue light emitted from screens can delay the release of sleep-inducing melatonin, increase alertness and reset the body’s internal clock to a later schedule.

So the prime job is to put off those screens from your kids during bed time. Swap it with a good and interesting book they would love to read.
Also try to keep the room dark and create a perfect mood for sleep.
Ensure your kids get plenty of exercise during the day by keeping them involved in physical activities and other engagements.
