Right – it is bathtime. So I thought I would tell you all our bedtime routine with Sophie!
7pm– Warm lavender bath with Daddy. Mummy does the washing, Daddy holds the slippery critter
7.30pm – PJs, teething gel, Calpol and nasal spray (Sophie has a cold!)
8pm – Read a book to a dummy sucking baby
8.30pm – Put down asleep in the cot after half hour of rocking and soothing, dummy intact
Sophie sleeps in a short sleeve vest, a long sleeve sleepsuit, 1.5tog sleeping bag and a pair of socks over her hands. My daughter has this habit of rubbing and smacking her own face. I believe this is my fault as I stroke her hair when she is tired, so she sometimes tries to soothe herself by stroking her own head. Cute. As. A. Button
We put Karvol decongestant into her cot to help the snot she has going at the moment and if she’s out of it we don’t put on her Winnie the Pooh lullaby machine.
Bam – sleeping happy baby, happy parents!
