As an infant gets older their sleep schedule becomes more regular and bedtime routines become more and more important. A few weeks back we began noticing more regularity in O’s sleeping so we decided to try to establish a basic bedtime routine. The glow worm toy was a Christmas gift so we thought it would be great to put it in O’s crib just before bedtime because it has a gentle glow and softly plays lullabies for 10 minutes. The idea was that it would help to slowly settle him the last little bit so he would easily fall asleep. This picture was taken around minute 9 and as you can see he is very happy and very awake. He was making cute happy noises, but it definitely did not calm him. The glow worm is great but I don’t think we will be using at bedtime anymore. Does anyone out there have any thoughts/articles/suggestions for a calming bedtime routine?
