  1. This sounds like a wonderful idea. My kids feel so special when I let them drink tea with me- and they love bedtime snacks- so this may form a new routine at our house. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Do you find that they become dependent on the tea or essential oils to sleep? I have always had routines with my kiddos that provided security and relaxation to their little minds and hearts. But was wondering if you use these other things if they become a necessity in order to sleep?

    • That’s a great question. I think the answer depends on how much structure a particular child seems to need. Mine are pretty flexible, so if we get home late and skip some of our routine they are fine as long as there are extra hugs and kisses before bed ๐Ÿ™‚

      The herbs themselves are not habit forming, so no worries there.

  3. Hi, how young can I start doing this tea blend? My son (2) is curious every time we drink tea now and I was wondering if I can start this? Maybe it can help him calm down before bed ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. There is something I don’t get, do you sleep with your cell phone in your bedroom? What about EMF disruption of the brain and especially developing brains? How can this be a good solution long-term? I’m confused about how healthy this is… would love to know what you think about EMF, especially in this case.

    • Hi Lala, here’s an excerpt from the article you may have missed: “Another thing to consider is that the speaker system is completely wired, which means it emits no radio-frequency EMFs. If your going to use the phone app, I suggest turning it to airplane mode before going to sleep.”

      While in airplane mode a phone is essentially the same thing as a wired speaker set. Like all electronic devices including alarm clocks, it does emit some emf’s. However, they are not the RF ones associated with cell phones and wifi. Still, to minimize exposure I keep our Sleep Genius on the opposite side of the room from where we sleep. Everyone will have a different comfort level, but for us the benefits far outweigh the downsides.
