Lauren Olson, a certified pediatric sleep coach, also gave some tips via Disney, such as parents installing black out shades to block the sunlight and prevent children from waking up too early. Parents can also introduce a stuffed toy “friend” that is only offered during bedtime that might help comfort children.
The phone line 877-7-Mickey (877-764-2539) will be available until the end of August in the U.S. and Canada.
