Happy new years from me and Jack! I am not doing anything and hope to be asleep by midnight… oh life with a baby.
Poor Jack is getting 3 molars now, so his sleep has been majorly messed up. Over the last few weeks either he wouldn’t fall asleep until 9 or 10, or would wake up in the middle of the night for an hour or two.
I decided to try a bedtime routine (since I’m not letting him cry so there aren’t a lot of other options). I tried halfheartedly before but felt that when he was younger he didn’t really notice so I got lazy.
Here’s our new routine: (has worked pretty well for 2 days now)
-Change into night-time diaper (pocket diaper with extra stuffing)
-Put coconut oil on, and use some oil that has lavender essential oil (lavender may help sleep, or the scent could become an association with bedtime at least)
-Get in the tula carrier and get walked around with dim lights while mom sings
hopefully it helps!Like
