accent pillow case baby burlap housewares 8 Tips to Help Your Kids Get Better Sleep pillow covers solid

Do you find yourself battling with your kids at bedtime, and then again in the morning to get them out of bed and out the door? There are many factors that can affect sleep habits, and when it comes to kids, we need them to be well rested, so we collaborated with The Huffington Post to create some tips:

1. Reducing exposure to bright light during the two hours before bed helps the brain prepare for sleep. Light sends a powerful signal to the brain that it’s still daytime and too early to be thinking of bed. While it’s OK for a child to read quietly in bed with a low-wattage reading lamp, bathing him in bright light is a surefire way of pushing back fall-asleep time.

2. Eliminating stimulating activities — such as video games, televisionaccent pillow case baby burlap housewares, gymnastics, etc. — during the final couple of waking hours of the day, will also help your child to settle into sleep mode faster.

3. Making sure that there are no screens — smartphones, computers and televisions — in the bedroom will prevent exposure to light and excitement. It will also help channel your child’s attention (should he not quite be ready for sleep) toward something much more worthwhile: reading. (More on this below.)

4. Have your child do his homework outside of the bedroom — at the dining room table, for example — and not in the bedroom (and never in bed). Maintaining a physical distance between stressors and your child’s bed will enable him to detach himself more easily from the pressures of the day and to relax, facilitating the transition to sleep.

5. For a child who tends toward anxiety, 20 minutes of guided imagery or mindfulness exercises right before getting into bed can go a long way toward reducing stress. This makes it easier to fall and to stay asleep, and may also reduce the frequency of night terrors and sleepwalking, if these are present.

6. Once in bed, it’s OK (more than OK, actually!) for your child to read with a low-intensity reading light before turning over and shutting her eyes. Allowing your child to read in bed can achieve many positive goals. It may instill in her a lifelong love of reading; help redirect her attention from any residual stressors of the day to an entirely different plane; and prevent her from getting antsy and riled up if she happens to be put in bed before she’s ready to fall asleep.

7. Although there are many guidelines suggesting how many hours a child should sleep based upon his age, it is important to remember that these are ballpark estimates. The actual amount of sleep your child requires may vary considerably, even compared to what his sister needed when she was his age. While you would certainly want to provide your 7-year-old with a window of at least 10 hours for sleep, he may not need quite that much. Letting him do something quiet and relaxing that doesn’t rile him up may actually make it easier for him to fall asleep sooner than if he becomes bored, antsy, and more awake out of frustration and boredom.

8. Finally, it is very important to keep your child on a regular sleep/wake schedule seven days a week. Although more common in adolescence, some elementary-school–age kids have a natural inclination to delay their sleep time, staying up later at night and sleeping in later in the morning. This tendency is usually kept in check during the school week, but these children’s internal clocks can be thrown entirely out of sync with the external clock if they are allowed to “revert” to their natural rhythms by staying up on Friday and Saturday nights and sleeping in on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Doing so can create the equivalent of jet lag, making getting up for school on Monday mornings — and often on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as well — very challenging. In turn, this can make falling asleep at the appointed bedtime more difficult for them.

Sleep Number understands that well-rested kids feel more confident and do better in school, sports and in life. Our SleepIQ Kids™; bed is the only bed that adjusts to their ideal comfort as they grow, for their best possible sleep. Learn more here.

It's a scientifically proven fact that dogs are 75% cuter when they are wearing a bandana. Well, not really, but if you scroll through any of the dog hashtags on Instagram, you'll see that the dogs with the most likes are probably wearing an accessory of some sort.

???????????????????? There's probably 50 different ways to hem pants. Every shop I've worked in has had their own flavor or version they prefer. Today, I am showing you how to do simple hand hemming with a needle and thread. In general, this is a finish you will be asked to do in higher-end couture shops, custom bridal wear, and theater where the quality of the finish is more important than the time. Hand-hemming lends a softness and incredible hand to a garment, however it can take 30 min to 4 hrs. to complete a piece so set yourself aside some time to do it if you want this right. The finished piece will generally hold up to the regular wash, but should be treated like lingerie or heirloom sewing. Hand-washing or the dry cleaners is always better for lovely custom work. ????????????????????? We will be doing a top and skirt today for you to see various versions of this. Please note this is an assymetrical draped hem I did for practice. Anyone can do an even hem easily. If you haven't done even hems before, just put on the shoes you will be wearing on the finished piece and a ruler, with a straight ruler or yardstick, get someone to walk around you and measure at the height you want the finished garment to be. Add at least 1 1/2 inches for a narrow hem and 3 inches for a wide hem. If you don't have a "skirt hemmer" (aka-ruler), you can pick one up for under $1 at Wal-mart in the office/school supply section or pay $5-30.00 for a fancy one at any sewing supply store. When I worked retail, we just did this by eye. Piece to Be Hemmed/Finished Scissors Iron Needle (I prefer John James which you can buy in any sewing store or Amazon for a few dollars) Thread (Use good tailors Rices or Salamide thread. This is available in any beading store in small 40 yard cards for $1-2 or online. You will need only need a small amount. One card will normally do several pants or dresses.) Pins (Dressmaker Pins are available by the 300-500 for $1-3 at any sewing store or online.) Optional Ruler (Under $1 at any Dollar Tree, Wal-mart, or School/Office Supply Store)
