Everyone has their own routine even if they don’t know it. We have a perfect bedtime routine at the moment which is letting Rosie sleep form 7pm-7am and Miyah is so much more relaxed in the evening. Miyah doesn’t have a set bedtime or anything yet as she is still so small but now she is getting into our routine she is so much more chilled and she seems happier where as before she would be very grumpy in the evening time. So i will be sharing with you, what we do and how we do it.
We start our bedtime routine at around 5:30pm when dinner is ready. We have dinner as a family and the watch simpsons. We would chill out while watching then go upstairs and get ready for a bath. Usually I bath Miyah and Rosie together with the help of Michael, we then get them out and ready for bed. I give Miyah a feed and settle her into her cot and then we *usually* read Rosie a book and then say out good nights. I say usually because sometimes we may miss a night.
The girls currently are both usually asleep by 8:00pm and miyah sleeps till 4/5am for a feed then around 6/8am she will wake again. Rosie will sleep till around 6 to 7am and we will start our day. Rosie has been a very poorly baby for the past 3 years and she recently has had her last hospital trip. This resulted in 5 days and better results. Since then we have had a full night sleeps instead of her waking up to 10 times a night due to her coughing. She is a changed baby! Well toddler 😏.
Me and Michael will then relax for a couple hours! His friend Kieran usually comes round and we play the PlayStation for a bit then depending on the day and what shift I have I will go to bed while they carry on playing downstairs.
This is our bedtime routine, as requested by my followers on twitter 😍
