Bedtime/Morning routine

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

Just wondering what everyone does for their bedtime routine with your 8-month-old. We're thinking about switching ours up a little as she's getting older and seems to be not as happy with what we're doing now. As it is now, we start getting ready around 7:30, reading a story, getting a bath, then a bottle and bed.

Also, in the mornings, she's starting to get up earlier and earlier... Now it's up to 6:15. We have a morning bottle to cure the "I'm starvings" and then cereal and fruit. How about yours? Any interesting tips or tricks to share?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

We only do baths 2 times a week so that is not on our ruttten. It depends on when she wakes up. Usually she is up at 7 and then is fed at 7 for about 40 mints then I change her, talk about a bible story or verse we pray and then her music goes on and I giver her her lamb and she will sleep until 7 or 7:30. Also depends on naps. If its been a hard day were naps got messed up then night time seems off too. Also there are 2 days a week that its more like 9 she goes to bed because we get home late from things I have to be at. I nurse her so I think that is important in her ruteen.

my daughter is bathed at 6 every night has a bottle and sleeps till 6-7 in the morning we used to bath her around 7 then bed for 8 but she actually sleeps better now that i bath her earlier... i dont really have any tips as both my children have slept well from them being born but maybe try bath her then giv her a bottle then read a storey to her while shes in bed instead of reading the book first n maybe do it abit earlier to see if she sleeps til around the same time. hope this helps
