That Dreaded Second Wind

Ever wonder why your child gets a second wind when they miss their bedtime? If your child missed their sleep window (the natural time when they are ready
for bed) instead of producing calming melatonin, their bodies’ produce the stress hormone cortisol. This causes your child to have trouble falling and staying asleep. To avoid this – Make sure your child goes to sleep at around the same time everyday. Watch the clock and their sleepy cues to be sure their bedtime is when it should be.
