Help Baby Go to Sleep:

Get Active: Before your bedtime routine, make sure baby has enjoyed some activity while perfecting those creeping-crawling-walking skills.


Take a Relaxing Bath: One of the best for bedtime is bathtime. An excellent way to wind down. 


Say Goodnight: Extend the goodnight blessing to favorite objects and toys, helping baby understand it’s time to sleep.


Darkness: Make sure the room is nice and dark to help regulate baby’s production of the sleep hormone (melatonin).


Let Baby Nap: Trying to cut down on naps might actually make baby more restless at bedtime instead of more sleepy.


Lullabies and Bedtime Stories: Choose a favorite song or book and use it as part of your bedtime routine to help baby prepare for bed.
