      Kids that had a busy holiday weekend may find it hard getting back into their regular sleep routine.

      Phoebe sleep professionals have a few tips for parents to help get kids back on track.

      Doctors say in order to calm kids down in the evening for bed; parents should cut out caffeine six hours before bedtime and also limit sugary foods and drinks.

      Technological devices should also be put away early.

      "Do not have children do anything in bed such as watching TV, computers, IPads, IPods, texting, all that is really bad for sleep," said Dr. Hannah Lin, Phoebe General Physician.

      In the morning, parents are advised to get kids up bright and early and expose them to lots of sunshine to get their day started.
