    Bedtime Tips for Parents

    1. Getting Active – Before you start your bedtime routine, make sure baby has enjoyed some activity (after she is 3-months-old). Make sure she lets off some steam by perfecting those creeping-crawling-walking skills.  
    2. Taking A Relaxing Bath – One of the best queues for bedtime is bath-time. Warm relaxing water and a sweet smelling baby ready for bed once you’re done – what more could a mother ask for?  
    3. Saying Goodnight – Extend the goodnight blessing to favorite objects: a teddy bear or bunny; a mobile or other dangling toy; the moon and the stars; the house and the room; etc.   
    4. Lullabies, Bedtime Stories and Bedtime Apps – Choose your favorite song, book or bedtime app and use it as part of your bedtime routine. This will serve as a queue that will help baby prepare himself for bed. Stick to a specific, recognizable choice that your baby will associate with sleep.
