Late nights and lax bedtime routines can blunt young children's minds, research suggests.The findings on sleep patterns and brain power come from a UK study of more than 11,000 seven-year-olds.
Youngsters who had no regular bedtime or who went to bed later than 21:00 had lower scores for reading and maths.
Alison believes passionately in teaching children to sleep properly from an early age. She didn't really need a survey to confirm what she has always known!! Some people criticize her approach but the evidence is undeniable, babies, toddlers and older children all benefit from a good nights sleep.

She is working on the Toddler Sleep Plan and we can't get it out there soon enough.
