Sleeping Time

Having problems with the sleeping pattern of your preschool? Here are some tips from kidspot.com.au:
Your pre-schooler will need between 10-12 hours of sleep at night - like adults, there's a wide range of 'normal'.

She will most likely give up napping during the day at this time.
Her bedtime will probably become later as she needs less sleep overnight
She may still wake during the night and want you to comfort her.
Sleep problems, such as nightmares and sleepwalking, are common at this age.
Your pre-schooler may find it more difficult to settle to sleep - especially after a big day at pre-school - and may develop a range of delaying tactics at bedtime.
If you have been sharing a bed up until this time, you may find that your pre-schooler is ready to move into her own bed and her own room.

The Tatapilla sleeps with me on my bed. That's not a problem for us. We like him there. We also don't have a problem with his sleeping. He naps once a day and can last for up to 3 hours (imagine how much quite time can we get). Sleeping a night is like a breeze. He sleeps late if you just let him play or be on his own. He likes talking even to himself. But he sleeps soundly as if he is coccooned in warm silk. At times, it gives me ample time to do opp on hydroxycut reviews.
