Bedtime Routines

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!

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!
