Creating a Soothing Routine: A Calming Transition

Routines provide a sense of security for babies, toddlers, and even adults. A consistent, soothing routine helps your little one transition from awake time to sleepy time. Every time you start the routine, they will know that sleep is the next thing.

Sleep-Friendly Environment

The sleep environment plays a crucial role in promoting restful sleep. Explore how room-darkening shades and a white noise machine can transform your baby's sleep space into a serene haven, blocking out disturbances for a more peaceful slumber.

Protip: Create a sleep-friendly environment when you start the bedtime routine. Play some lullabies as background music and use a soothing fragrance like lavender.
