Ever since my oldest turned four, our nightly bedtime routine has been less than magical. It’s always a struggle for him to get to bed and get a full night’s sleep. It’s been a concern of ours since he’s starting preschool this Fall. One of our goals is to make bedtime a bit more fun and fell less rigid to him. These Disney Store sleep favorites are in store right now and can help make bedtime less of a struggle. Plus, the Sleep Shop Hotline will make it magical!

Top Tips for Bedtime
Early Wake Up
This is common! If your child is waking up every morning before 6am, it’s time to invest in a black out shades and a light or clock that illuminates when it’s time to get out of bed in the morning.
Won’t Go to Sleep
If your child suddenly refuses to fall asleep on their own or is waking up in the middle of the night, consider introducing a “friend” which is only offered a sleepy time. This can be a blanket or favorite stuffed animal, like the new Cuddleez! This oversized plush can even double as a pillow for toddlers when traveling.
Consistency is key. Decide on a consistent, yet flexible schedule that works for your life and stick to it as best possible.
Scared at Night
If your child tells you they are scared at night, introduce a “nighttime friend” that is only offered at bed time, and encourage your child to hold, squeeze or sing to their friend should they wake worried at night.
