Helping kids on a summer sleep schedule

There is something about summer vacation that makes it seem as if the rules go out the window and things like bedtimes and eating vegetables should be packed away with school books and backpacks until fall rolls around.  Unfortunately, not every family has the luxury of adjusting their entire schedule to enable a more leisurely lifestyle that also allows everyone to get enough sleep.  Moms and Dads still have to get up in the morning and go to work which means kids have to get up and go to camp or childcare.  Late nights and early mornings don’t mix any better during the summer than they do when school is in session.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, school age children need at least nine hours of sleep each night to be healthy and have the energy they need to be active.  The best way to make sure kids are getting the sleep they need is to stick to a standard schedule of bedtime and wake time.  But during the summer, that isn’t always an easy thing to do.  To help parents prepare for a successful summer full of fun and slumber, here are 4 tips for helping kids on a summer sleep schedule.

1.     Set a Bedtime You Can Stick to that Works with Your Schedule
There is no point in setting a summer bedtime that you won’t be able to follow.  Be realistic about what your family’s summer schedule is really like.  Are you out and about later into the day than during the rest of the year? Are you traveling or having family visit? When do your children need to be up in the morning?  All these questions should feed into setting a summer bedtime that will work for your family.
2.     Make Sleep a Priority
Children need 9-10 hours of sleep and they need to see that sleep is important for them and for the rest of the family.  Make sure each family member has room in the schedule to get the sleep their body needs to be healthy.

3.     Allow for Free Time
In our fast paced world, we are apt to over schedule our lives and the lives of our children.  Let summer be a break from structured, scheduled time and make sure your children have free time to play and explore.  Overscheduled children can become stressed out and too much stress can keep them from getting the sleep they need, even if you schedule it in.

4.     Follow the Same Routine
During the school year, it is likely that your child has a specific routine they follow in order to get ready for bed.  They change into pajamas; brush their teeth, read a book, etc.  Try to keep this routine as similar as possible during the summer to reinforce that muscle memory that tells the body it’s time to go to bed.  This will also make it easier to get back on a regular sleep schedule once summer is over.

The transition from crib to bed

We have recommended to made the change when the child is about 2 years old.

The crib so far been the reference furniture in the room, now it is the bed.
The child is much more independent and now begins a new stage, and can go to sleep in a bed.
If you purchased a convertible crib, you'll have to change it to bed. There are many kinds of convertible cribs, but usually it becomes a bed of 190x90 cm or 180x80 cm.

Our child´s leisure and recreational space has also changed, now we need more space, a table to paint would be nice to  introducing him/her to read or study habits that will come later.
We can also change other items, even colors.
The lighting in the first few months has been more subdued and soft, now we can change the intensity.
It is very likely that the creative impulses of the child require coating the wall with a base of washable paint, fingerprint-proof and scribbles.

Important add furniture and shelves for storage toys, books etc ..

We must bear in mind that the height is appropriate to the age of the child and his/her safety, as they are now very curious.

For a child, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep

Decorating a kids' room doesn't mean you have to scrimp on style. In fact, it opens up a whole new world of exciting design possibilities, even for small spaces. It's the perfect excuse to be as bold, brave or magical as you want. Whether it's a girls' room, a boys' bedroom or nursery, we've found some amazing children's bedroom ideas to steal, from furniture to accessories like  kids' wallpaper. 

For a child, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. It is a place to do schoolwork, listen to music, play games, sprawl on the floor, rough-house, read, build models, daydream, visit with friends and keep innumerable possessions. You’ll need to plan carefully to create a room that serves all those functions, to be comfortable and inviting.

Let the fun begin ...

Cots and security

A cot will probably be your baby's bed until he is two years or three years old. It should be strong and sturdy without cracked or broken slats, with no jagged points or edges. 

If you are buying a new cot, it should conform to BS EN 716-2:2008, as all new cots on sale in the UK have to meet this standard. This standard ensures that the cot is deep enough to be safe for your baby, that the bars are the correct distance apart, and that the cot does not have cut-outs or steps. 

If your cot is second-hand or borrowed, make sure the distance between each bar is no less than 2.5cm (1in) and no more than 6.5cm (2.6in). You should not be able to fit a soft-drink can between the slats. This is to prevent your baby's head from slipping between the bars.

You can use your cot from the day your baby is born, if you like. However, many parents choose a Moses basket, crib, or carrycot for the first few months, or have their babies in the same bed as them. This is often because a newborn baby can look and feel a little lost in a big cot.

Teenagers and their study area

Every teenager should have a room, or part of the room where can study and prepare projects for school. If you have bigger house you can make one room specially for this purpose. But if you live in a small apartment and your space is limited you need to find some free corner and you should rearrange it in place for studying. That way your kid’s school stuff will be every time arranged and you will enable them easier learning.

Remenber that Teenage years can be dominated by school exams, so a tidy and organised study area in a teen's bedroom is a must. Invest in a good quality desk and chair and fit some shelves above the desk area so your teen has plenty of space to store coursework and books.

Ideas for Better Sleep

Most teens need about 8½ to more than 9 hours of sleep each night. But about 1 in 4 teens has trouble sleeping. Lack of sleep can affect everything from our emotions to how well we focus on tasks like driving. It can affect sports performance, increase our chances of getting sick, and may be linked to weight gain in some people.

Which one of these are you most likely to try as a way to get a better night's sleep?
Follow a relaxing bedtime routine
Turn off my phone and other devices
Go to bed earlier
View Results
How can we get the sleep we need? Here are some ideas:

Be active during the day. You've probably noticed how much running around little kids do — and how soundly they sleep. Take a tip from a toddler and get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day. Physical activity can decrease stress and help people feel more relaxed. Just don't work out too close to bedtime because exercise can wake you up before it slows you down.
Avoid alcohol and drugs. Lots of people think that alcohol or drugs will make them relaxed and drowsy, but that's not the case. Drugs and alcohol disrupt sleep, increasing a person's chance of waking up in the middle of the night.
Say goodnight to electronics.

If you can't make your bedroom a tech-free zone, at least shut everything down an hour or more before lights out. Nothing says, "Wake up, something's going on!" like the buzz of a text or the ping of an IM.
Keep a sleep routine. Going to bed at the same time every night helps the body expect sleep. Creating a set bedtime routine can enhance this relaxation effect. So unwind every night by reading, listening to music, spending time with a pet, writing in a journal, playing Sudoku, or doing anything else that relaxes you.
Expect a good night's sleep. Stress can trigger insomnia, so the more you agonize about not sleeping, the greater the risk you'll lie awake staring at the ceiling. Instead of worrying that you won't sleep, remind yourself that you can. Say, "Tonight, I will sleep well" several times during the day. It can also help to practice breathing exercises or gentle yoga poses before bed.

Everyone has a sleepless night once in a while. But if you regularly have trouble sleeping and you think it's affecting your mood or performance, talk to your doctor. consulta a tu médico.

In Furniture Ros, beds and rooms are designed thinking of enhancing the rest. The theory is very simple, implementing it is another thing.

For kids, their bedroom is their world!

Before we buy a bedroom for a kid or a teenager, we have to ask to them first what they want.
Listen first, we will have a budget according to what we can we spend.

Sleep is food for the brain

During sleep, important body functions and brain activity occur.
Skipping sleep can be harmful, even deadly, particularly if you are behind the wheel.
You can look bad, you may feel moody, and you perform poorly.
Sleepiness can make it hard to get along with your family and friends and hurt your scores on school exams, on the court or on the field.
When you do not get enough sleep, you are more likely to have an accident, injury and/or illness.
Teens need about 9 1/4 hours of sleep each night to function best (for some, 8 1/2 hours is enough). Most teens do not get enough sleep — one study found that only 15% reported sleeping 8 1/2 hours on school nights.
Teens tend to have irregular sleep patterns across the week — they typically stay up late and sleep in late on the weekends, which can affect their biological clocks and hurt the quality of their sleep.
Many teens suffer from treatable sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy, insomnia, restless legs syndrome or sleep apnea.
Not getting enough sleep or having sleep difficulties can:
Limit your ability to learn, listen, concentrate and solve problems. You may even forget important information like names, numbers, your homework or a date with a special person in your life; Make you more prone to pimples. Lack of sleep can contribute to acne and other skin problems; Lead to aggressive or inappropriate behaviour.
In Furniture Ros, we work to give these premises, design of beds that promote comfort and good rest. Desks for better school performance. Facilitate the elements within bedroom it will help young people feel more comfortable and at ease, and therefore they will rest and sleep better.

March 3rd is World Wildlife Day

Photo. Nacho Sánchez Bravo
"It is time to get serious about wildlife crime"
This year’s theme for World Wildlife Day is right in line with one of the key goals of the World Heritage Convention: protecting sites which are home to threatened plant and animal species.
These invaluable sites are threatened more than ever, and illegal human activities such as poaching and illegal logging are some of the most worrisome.  There has been an increasing poaching pressure, due to a growing illicit trade, particularly affecting African elephants and rhinoceroses. In 2014, significant losses were reported in the populations of these species in a number of World Heritage sites, including a dramatic decline of over 80% of the elephant population in Selous Game Reserve (Tanzania) since 2005.  Illegal logging of precious timber species is also an issue: a resumption of illegal logging of rosewood (Dalbergia sp.) was reported in 2014 in some parts of the Rainforests of the Atsinanana (Madagascar), and illegal logging of Siamese rosewood (D. cochinchinensis) in Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai Forest Complex (Thailand) was reported as escalating both in intensity and violence. In 2014, poaching, illegal logging and other wildlife crimes represented a clear threat to over 50% of the natural properties examined by the World Heritage Committee at its 38th session (Doha, 2014).
As a result, the World Heritage Committee adopted Decision 38 COM 7 in which it reiterated its utmost concern about the continued impacts on World Heritage properties due to rising pressure from poaching, particularly of elephant, rhinoceros, and valuable timber species, linked to a growing illicit trade, and the increasing involvement of organized crime in this lucrative business. The World Heritage Committee also urged the 191 States Parties to the World Heritage Convention to ensure strong international collaboration and coordination to control the illicit trade in flora and fauna and their products.
World Wildlife Day is celebrated on March 3rd, the date that the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was adopted in 1973. The goal of World Wildlife Day is to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora; recall the privileged interactions between wildlife and populations across the globe; and raise awareness of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts.

A young student grows, and a student desk with a chair should grow with a kid

A modern study area with a writing desk for a young kid should be properly designed, ergonomic, comfortable and attractive, providing healthy seating positions and complementing kids bedroom furniture and decor style. A computer table or a writing desk with a chair for children activities should be made of environmentally friendly materials, functional, durable and safe. Young children’s health depends on the quality of kids bedroom furniture as one of the factors.
A young student grows, and a student desk with a chair should grow with a kid. Young children, especially physically active, get tired very quickly, seating at a writing desk or a computer table that can not be easily adjusted for various positions. Parents need to organize the study area for their child and equipped it with the properly designed kids bedroom furniture, ergonomic writing desk and kids chair, or a computer table, that ensure the correct position for a young student.

Comfortable kids furniture and good organization of a study area in modern kids bedrooms help save good posture and improve back health, or correct it. Uncomfortable kids furniture, computer desks and chairs or poor student desk design can make it worse. Ergonomic and adjustable kids bedroom furniture, that is functional and comfortable for young children, is a very important element of modern kids room design.

Is your baby safe in his/her crib?

Crib Convertible Elite
We are talking about security, not your security, we discuss the security of what you love most; your baby.
In furniture Ros, we take this issue very seriously, we can talk about design, functionality or other features that highlight our product, but first we have to ensure the safety.
Be advised by the experts, even ask friends who have already had children. But there are things that depend on you; of what you choose or what you buy.
Have you ever wondered when you go to choose your baby's bedroom, if all the furniture on the market meet all the safety certificates and approvals..
This is an essential starting point and can avoid trouble in the future. Not all furniture we find in the market meet these requirements, and we are not talking about cheap brands.
They still exist in our country domestic manufacturers that do not meet several of these safety standards generally, and they copied designs from other manufacturers, and perhaps therefore they save costs and offer a cheaper product than the rest, by minimizing the hardware, thicknesses or the required minimum distances for safety.
The result is a crib, apparently similar to the one they copied, but which does not meet safety approvals and the safety certificates required, and it can have consequences that we may regret in the future.
Our advice is to ask at the store, before making any purchases, which products meet basic safety standards.
If you have doubts ask about manufacturer.

Children, Electronics and Sleep

The increasing prevalence of electronics in children’s bedrooms creates a culture of evening engagement and light exposure that negatively impacts sleep time, sleep quality and daytime alertness.   

Children using electronic media as a sleep aid to relax at night have been shown to have later weekday bedtimes, experience fewer hours of sleep per week and report more daytime sleepiness. 
Adolescents with a bedroom television have later bedtimes, more difficulty initiating sleep and shorter total sleep times. 
Texting and emailing after lights outs, even once per week, dramatically increases self-reported daytime sleepiness among teens. 
Not all electronic usage is recreational as the burden of homework is great for many of our children and their work is often completed on the computer, a significant light source late in the evening. 
Increased academic demands, busy social and extracurricular schedules and the lure of entertainment conspire to keep our children electronically engaged at night. 
Many children are not fulfilling basic sleep requirements and adequate sleep is essential for growth, learning, mood, creativity and weight control.  Understanding the influence of light and evening engagement on sleep is the first step in helping parents address the dilemma of electronics in the bedroom.

Space is at a premium in many homes, and trundle beds are a great way to save space.

This is especially true for people who live in small apartments or large families who live in small homes. If you have ever wondered about these versatile beds, read on to find answers to frequently asked questions about trundle beds.
Trundle Bed Questions:

What is a trundle bed?
Trundle beds are essentially two beds which can be packed into the space that one bed would take up. This doubles the sleeping capacity at night while keeping the space free during the day. Unlike a bunk bed, trundle beds store one of the beds directly under the other that is the height of a standard bed. One of the beds is usually smaller than the other, and the smaller bed is usually on rollers or casters, which makes it easier to move it in and out from underneath the main bed.
Who are trundle beds best for?
Because one needs to be stored under the other, most trundle beds do not feature thick mattresses, and the lower bed will be very close to the flow. This means that they may not be ideal for people with back problems or older people, although they are perfectly suited for children, teens, and overnight guests.
What are trundle beds made from?
Trundle beds can be made of any material that is commonly used to craft a standard bed. The material you choose will depend on your interior decorating scheme and other furniture in the home. Trundle beds can be made out of wood, metals, or cast iron and some are even upholstered.
Why should I buy a trundle bed?
The main reason for buying a trundle bed is to save space. You are getting two beds that can be stored in the same space that one bed would usually occupy. Depending on the style, trundle beds can also be turned into daybeds or chaise lounges in the daytime because the primary bed usually has the feel of a small couch. However, when you require the bed function, you can quickly roll out the second bed. Add your pillows and bedding and you're ready to sleep. You can even get trundle bed designs that include drawers in which you can store your bedding and pillows when they are not in use.
