Warm bath, brush teeth, read books, jammies, and snuggle! Then it’s sound machine on and lights out!

We always brush teeth and read a few books, then say goodnight and shut the door!

Have some down time, brush teeth, crawl into bed for bed time stories and then off to sleep!

We read several pages from a novel each night in the baby’s room before putting the preschooler down. If he’s really tired he will fall asleep on the floor in her room before we make it to his room 😂

Tuesday Tips: You should throw away your baby walkers because they are unsafe! They might seem like harmless fun, but they cause lots of accidents and injuries, such as burns, broken bones, and head injuries. And they don’t help your baby learn to walk any faster. They can even delay your child’s walking! Safer alternatives are stationary activity centers, high chairs, or playpens. You can read this article for more information:
