Getting our baby or toddler to sleep through the night can be one of the most difficult experiences of parenthood.
Bedtime routines are safe, effective, and usually the standard treatment intervention for toddlers and infants with sleep problems.
So lucky, I have not experienced any difficulties for Chloe and Aven to sleep when they still an infant.
One of my best reason is I'm a proud breastfeeding Mom, best bonding ever had with my daughters. No wonder in many benefits of breastfeeding and one of it is a good sleep for our baby.
I love lying down with my 2 daughters at the end of the day and letting them fall asleep in my arms when they are still a baby after I nurse them and now they are a sweet toddlers, I cherish each moment with them especially a night on my side.
Our bed time routines to share:
A WARM BATH
"Our bedtime ritual consists of a warm bath in which I let them play.
Having a bath at day and night together is a happy and learning time moment
especially brushing our teeth together while singing(in a tune of Row Row Row Your Boat):
Brush brush brush my teeth
Get them shiny clean
front and back
and even in between!
It's a fun bonding moments together that kids enjoyed a lot!
Ever since I only trust J&J Baby Bedtime Collection because I find it not sticky nor oily to the touch, soft with a relaxing scent that calms a baby down. 100% proven!
"DADDY: 1-2-3 GO!!!"
When we hear this to their Dad, then it's about time for a a quiet game in the living room or in their bedroom, either peekaboo or play with their fave blocks.
A non stop run, laugh and play together!
READ A BED TIME STORY
When kids get accustomed to reading a story before bedtime, the cozy ritual becomes their alarm clock: after the story, they know that it's time to go to sleep.
I let them choose a book for mommy to read. Let's say it's Ate's (eldest) turn first to choose a book then my Bunso (youngest) turn. Then sometime we do some arts.
Now, I discover new way of reading bedtime stories.
Since it's modern era now there is a Night-time Internet Destination.
Here is a link to share:
Children benefit from hearing bedtime stories, not only intellectually but emotionally.
MASSAGE and a short CHIT-CHAT
I give them a massage with Johnson&Johnson Lavender Bedtime Lotion for about 15 minutes. A drop of lotion with our calm hands in their soft skin will make us happy to make this activity a part of every evening. While having a massage we chat also about the story we read and what they learn.
A massage is a relaxing technique that calms, soothes and relaxes our baby/kids. It is also a wonderful bonding method and is very much enjoyed by both parents and baby.
A PRAYER, SWEET GOODNIGHT KISSES & A LULLABY
At young age, I let them know the importance of praying together as a family.
I turn off the lights, have a sweet goodnight kisses while playing a classical CD but most of the time they most love me to sing a lullaby for them.
Now it's time to close their eyes...
Quietly off to dreamland...
