Before I Sleep - Toddler Series #1

A toddlers bedtime routine is very important.
Today I want to tell you about our routine before Little Miss goes to bed. 

Playtime with daddy is followed by a nappy change and pj’s.

We then find somewhere comfortable to sit, and its time for milk. We opted give Little Miss formula as she was a very low birth weight (2.1kg), and we felt she would benefit from staying on it as long as possible. This is normally a 240ml bottle; sometimes she drinks all of it, other times she’ll leave a little. The brand we use is SMA Toddler Milk.

Next its time to relax. We love to sit and read a book, and Little Miss’s current favourites are;

*Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler
*The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler
*The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

Once we have read (and re-read) the books, its pretty much 7pm and time for bed. Naturally we have to make sure Teddy is ready for bed too, then Little Miss snuggles down and falls asleep.

7:30am our day starts again…………….
