Just wondering what everyones bed time routine is! My son is 16 weeks old and around 10 weeks I started a routine. Every night at 7 pm I give him his bath. I let him play until he shows hes had enough. My husband then takes him in the nursery ans puts on a fresh diaper and his jammies. my husband then lays him in his crib and turns on his crib soother ( we only use this at bedtime) my husband then talks to him helping him relax. ( i love listening to him it is so sweet) I prepare his bottle and then sit in the rocker in the nursery. (i also only do this in evening) My husband hands our son to me and he gets his bottle. The only light comes from the hall keeping the room dim and quiet.. When he is done with the bottle I rock him a short time then put him in his crib. ( he is usally awake but sleepy) A kiss on the cheek and Im out the door. He will settle himself with no crying and then sleep through the night until 6 am. If your lil one is have trouble sleeping try a routine. I feel its a life saver.
