7. Sleep is king.
As adults, we often forget how important a predictable sleep routine is for little people. However, this can lead to major trouble while trying to squeeze in all the social obligations, shopping, and preparation that comes with the holidays. Some change in routine is unavoidable, but if you notice behaviors escalating, step back and look more closely at your plans, especially surrounding sleep. Make room for a nap, or quiet break if your child refuses, and keep bedtime at a regular hour as much as possible.
