Your baby goes through many changes throughout their first year of life and trying to find a solid routine when it comes to a bedtime can be difficult. Something I have learned since having my fourth baby is that each child is so very different and they do not all take to bedtime routines. One sure thing that I have found similar with all of my babies is that when we add a nightly bath to their routine, getting them own to sleep goes a bit smoother that night! I am excited to share with you a routine that works for my baby girl Harper and I hope that these tips can guide you when it comes to creating a bedtime routine that suits your baby’s needs.
I have been incredibly blessed with yet another water baby that could splish and splash all evening long in the bath tub. She is not afraid to get wet or cover her face, eyes, head, nose and everything else in between with bubbles. One of our most favorite bath time soaps to use is the Baby Magic Calming Baby Bath, it is the perfect soothing scent and incredibly gentle on my baby girl’s skin. Baby Magic Calming baby bath is made with real lavender and chamomile, containing pure lavender and chamomile extracts. This bath soap helps soothe and relax my baby before bedtime and she always smells so delicious after a bath! I love this product because it is hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested, also enriched with milk protein to help moisturize and nourish my baby’s skin and hair.
While getting your baby on a bedtime routine can be difficult at times, you have to remember that all that hard work will pay off because there are so many benefits! Here are just a few of the many benefits to putting your baby on a bedtime routine:
- A bedtime routine can help your baby sleep better
- A bedtime routine can help YOU relax too
- Bedtime Routines aid transitional periods
- A healthier child
- Less night wakings
- Less early rising
- Less resistance at bedtime
- A predictable bedtime
- Healthy sleep habits for the future
I know all too well that a bath every single night is not possible, but highly recommended if your baby is having a rough patch trying to get to sleep at night or simply needs something to help settle and unwind them for the evening. Adults always talk about how they can’t wait to settle down for the night with a good book and a bubble bath… well I am sure if babies could talk they would say the same thing, hehe!
If you are still trying to calm down your rambunctious baby for bedtime, I highly recommend giving a baby massage a try! If you have an older baby like mine that doesn’t sit still for very long… that is OK! The skin to skin is still so important for them and a gentle message (no matter how long) is always beneficial. We love to use the Baby Magic Baby Lotion because it is made from Camellia oil and marshmallow Root and features gentle and nourishing botanical properties. This lotion also contains fatty acids and vitamins. is sulfate free, dye Free and paraben free, contains no Phthalates and no formaldehyde donors. Safe and gentle on baby’s skin!
