Dress for Sleep Comfort

Clothe cold feet. Chilly feet keep some children awake; wearing socks may send them into dreamland.

Remove any scratchy tags from pajamas.

Don’t combine flannel pajamas and flannel sheets. The fabrics may stick together and make it difficult to turn over in bed.

Keep kids cool. If the room is warm, moisture-wicking athletic clothing or all-cotton sleepwear can prevent sweating -- and tossing. Air conditioning or a small fan will cool down the room -- and the whirring sound of the fan blades will calm a child’s mind.
