Sleep Tips: Consistency makes for a good night sleep

Posted October 9, 2012 8:20 p.m. EDT

If I've learned anything as a parent, there's one thing that makes my life with little ones a whole lot easier: consistency.

And Irene Gouge of Loving Lessons Pediatric Sleep Consulting tells me consistency is a key piece to getting kids to sleep at night.

"Kids thrive on consistency," said Gouge, a mom of two. When they don't get it, tantrums, meltdowns and sleepless nights can be the result.

Gouge talks more about being consistent with your kids and the importance of routines in my video interview with her.

Gouge has been offering sleep tips over the past four weeks here on Go Ask Mom. Check the box to the left for more tips and go to Loving Lessons' website for more information about what she offers.

Thank you Irene for sharing these great tips!
