We have been so unbelievably lucky with her sleeping; she started sleeping through 11-7 at 5 weeks, she now sleeps 7-7 at 14 weeks! We definitely believe a good routine has been a key factor in this, so I hope this helps anyone with starting a good routine..
Around 6/7ish Indie has a good splash about in the bath. This varies depending on what time Jack finishes work as this affects our dinner time, but it is never any later than 7. She's just starting to kick and splash about which is SO cute to watch. She could be screaming and being a right grump, but the second she gets in the water she's so calm. To begin with we were a bit nervous about bathing her, but now I find it such a joy. To put our minds at ease we purchased a bath support so we don't have to worry about supporting her (we never take her eyes off her regardless though).
|Bath Support From Mothercare £9.99|
|- means too cold, + means too hot and = means perfect!|
|This helps create a relaxing bubbly bath|
|We've used this since birth|
|Although this smells horrible, it's done such a good job|
|Her towels are from Mothercare and Dressing Gown from Asda|
|She loves her massage|
|Sleepingbag, comforter, mobile and seahorse.. bedtime sorted!|
By now it's time for her nighttime bottle. She's usually pretty sleepy at this point so doesn't usually finish it, and you can see her starting to drift off bless her. Then it's time for last few cuddles with mummy and daddy and then bed! She goes into a 1 tog sleepingbag with a blanket over the top. She usually goes off with just her dummy, bunny comforter and one turn of her mobile.
So that's our routine. It's pretty simple and much like everyone elses but it works, so why change it ay!
