Bedtime Routines

Did you know that even animals in the wild have bedtime routines? Well, not necessarily routines but they have their own way of doing their sleep routines. Close enough.

The adorable little Bedtime book by W. Harry Kirn has been a wonderful addition to our bedtime routines. It’s a good, calming way to help our little dude wind down in the evening before bedtime. Not to mention all of the benefits of being read to! According to specialists, doctors  and parents alike, the more words your child hears, the better they will speak! So don’t wait, start your routine from birth!

This little board book is super cute and just long enough for a fantastic start to a bedtime routine!

About the Book From the Publisher: “Real Facts. Big Fun. The animal families series is like a colorful classroom where many of the teachers have four legs and a tail. Some can even fly! Delight in discovering the bedtime habits we share with our feathered and furry friends.”

Tips To Establish & Keep Them Starting Tonight

  1. Start your routine at the same time every night, even during holidays and on vacations. Below are some things you can add to your routine if you’d like. According to Psych Central, having a routine creates a sense of safety. In college, we learned it as security rather than safety, but they are the same.
    • Take bath
    • Brush Hair/Teeth
    • Sing a soft song
    • Read Book
    • Lights Out
  2. Naptime is the same: same time every single day.
  3. About an hour or so before bedtime or when the sunlight goes away, turn down the lights in the house to get the brain to start releasing the sleep hormones. Turn off televisions and electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
  4. Do a countdown every night. Basically, “30 minutes until bedtime…” “15 minutes until bedtime…” until it’s bedtime. It helps children to learn that it’s coming and to be accepting of it.
  5. Make a poster board for bedtime routines, my friend did one and she swears by it! You can get a free printable for bedtime routine over at B-Inspired Mama if you’d like!
  6. If you need help getting your toddler to sleep alone, you can check out this article from Laptops & Naptimes for more on that adventure!

Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure.
