Set Bedtime Routine
Babies thrive on routines. When you have a routine established, it helps them anticipate what is coming next so it doesn’t come as a complete surprise. And routines are especially helpful when it comes to bedtime.
In addition to reducing stimulation as bedtime draws near, you can create some sort of “tradition” you guys follow each night. It may include a warm bath with lotion massage after, brushing teeth, story time in bed, singing songs together, or having a few minutes of cuddles together to talk about the events of the day.
