Tips for a smooth night time routine

Maybe for some of you, this has always been a tricky time of the day.

Sometimes getting your little one to sleep feels like an obstacle course. And you're covered in mud - lugging yourself to get to the finish line. It's in sight, yet so far away. Here are a few tips and tricks you may find helpful.

Create a signal for your children

Turn all primary lights off, letting them know the routine has begun. But keep a night light on. The almost-dark atmosphere preps them mentally and psychologically into sleep-mode.

Bath time is brilliant

For the last of the day's energy that's left in them, they can splash about and play with a few toys. Still, a tranquil state will certainly ensue from all the warmth of the water and a few soothing lavender drops.

Storytime

Pyjamas on, they're tucked in all snug, and their head is resting on the pillow. A short goodnight story is what they need next. Read to them at a whisper-level tone, and your routine is now complete.
