Whether you are expecting a newborn for the very first time or you are an experienced and hardened parent you will all have to think about a bedtime routine for your little ones. Some parents like to start a routine immediately whilst other choose to wait a lot longer.
Our Sleepytot Baby comforter team asked parents on our Facebook page at what age they started a bedtime routine with their kids and here are some of the answer:
Nic Lister – “At a few weeks old with my first, At 2 days old with my second.”
Cary Tillson – “About two months old”
David Gargan – “Just over a year as far as I can remember”
Joanne Carr – “Bedtime routine from when they got into regular evening sleep (about 3 months old). Baby tagged along with older brother. Sleep training 1yr+.”
Chris Pinchess –“About 4 weeks old! Best thing ever did”
Natalie Finch – “Since birth”
As you can see from just a sample of the replies we received choosing when to start a bedtime routine with your little ones is a personal decision. At SleepyTot baby comforter HQ we certainly feel that there is no right or wrong answer just when it suits you as parents best but most importantly when your little ones need it.
