[AD] As many parents know, establishing a bedtime routine is very important with their children, and will help set a pattern every night so both you and your child/children know what to expect.
We’ve been liaising with parents here at UKMums.TV and have compiled a list of top tips when settling your little ones down for the night.
Give them a soak
A nice warm bath is a soothing experience and getting your little one clean and dry is a great way to ease them into bedtime. If they don’t like baths however, don’t fear! With Funatic Foam, your kids can turn bath time into a little bit of fun playtime before they have to settle. Each Funatic Foam can comes in a bright colour and has a scent-sational smell, what’s more, it actually is soap so your kids can have good clean fun right before bedtime.
Brush their teeth
Your child’s routine should always include brushing their teeth. It’s important to start the habit of brushing as early as possible so that they learn to look after their teeth properly.
Get ready for bed
Let’s put on those PJ’s! Why not offer a couple of choices so they can exercise some of their growing independence!
Reading stories is a lovely way to keep calm before bedtime. Cuddle up for some cosy time and add a bit of theatre to your reading with silly voices! Plus, it’ll help with learning new words and encourage reading for when they’re older.
It’s time to say goodnight
Turn the lights off, say goodnight and give them a kiss. Keep it short and sweet. If your child is scared of the dark, you could use a nightlight. The key thing in whatever you do is to try and maintain consistency.
