Even minor exposure to light before bedtime may disrupt a preschooler’s sleep
A new study out of Monique K. LeBourgeois's Sleep and Development Laboratory shows when preschoolers are exposed to even dim light in the hour before bedtime it can significantly lower levels of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin, potentially disrupting sleep. The research serves as a reminder to parents to turn off electronics and dim the lights to promote healthy sleep in children.
