What We've Learned About Kids And Sleep In 2015Dr. Doni was recently quoted in an article called, “What We’ve Learned About Kids And Sleep In 2015,” published in the Huffington Post.

The article is about how a lack of sleep can be harmful to kids, and what you can do to help get your kids back on a regular, reliable sleep schedule. In particular, back-to-school time can be really disruptive for kids, since their summer routines and habits undergo a major shift. It can take a while for kids’ bodies to adjust to their new schedules, so it’s especially important to pay attention to how they respond.

Dr. Doni’s quote gets at one facet of kids and sleep—the bedtime snack:

Another easy lifestyle change is the nighttime snack. Eating sweets near bedtime causes a spike in blood sugar followed later by a drop, which leads to a feeling of hunger and may leave kids awake in the middle of the night. Donielle Wilson, a naturopathic doctor who sees many insomnia patients, recommends replacing the sugary snack with a high-protein one—say, a spoonful of almond butter, adding a cracker or two if desired.

Dr. Doni wrote an entire series on sleep disruptors and insomnia earlier this year, and created a special Natural Sleep Solutions Package to help get you back on track.
