Babies Really Do Like Bedtime Routine

I’ve never had a real set in stone routine for bedtime for my babies, but when they get older, I really see the benefits. Interestingly, a study by the Sleep Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Johnson’s Baby found that when 7 to 18 month olds follow a 30 minute wind down routine at night, they fall asleep 37% faster, sleep 23% longer and spend less time awake at night.

I guess it’s certainly worth it to develop a routine for your baby’s bedtime

    My kids did great with sleep routines when they were babies – it’s as they got a little older that I’ve floundered in keeping it up. I try, but not hard enough. Maybe I’ll restart tonight…
