One of the challenges of having a second baby is trying to find a bedtime routine that works for two very different age children. Since Alice was born I have tried a number of different ways of doing things, sometimes bathing the two together, sometimes separately. Since they started sharing a room recently there has been more of a need to find a way of doing things that works for the both of them, so when Johnson’s challenged us to try their 3-step Bedtime Routine we thought we’d give it a go.
Last week a parcel of supplies arrived and with half-term this week we are ready to be eased into a new routine gently. The big change for us will be the introduction of some baby massage between bath and bed. I’ve not tried this before in any capacity, so it will be interesting to learn about it and I’m hoping Theo might be able to get involved too.
Johnson’s recommend some quiet time and reading before bed, so we are going to try and combine Alice’s night-time feed with Theo’s bedtime story, the end goal for me will be to try and make the whole bedtime routine a bit smoother and relaxing for everyone. We’ll report back in two weeks time to let you know how it went!
