Creating the Perfect Bedtime Routine for your Little One

Kids are like tiny tornadoes during the day, leaving a trail of toys and giggles in their wake. But when the sun begins to set, it's time to shift gears from playtime to dreamland. A consistent bedtime routine works like a superhero cape, guiding your little ones smoothly into a peaceful slumber.

A consistent bedtime routine does more than just guarantee an early night for the kiddos – it's the secret ingredient for cultivating healthy, happy, sleep habits. And let's face it – parents need a break too. A bedtime routine not only benefits the kids but gives you a pocket of time to catch your breath, binge-watch your favourite show, or indulge in a guilty pleasure snack.

A bedtime routine becomes a signal to your child's brain that it's time to wind down. These can help with that much needed wind down period:

  • The Pyjama Parade: Transform bedtime into a fashion show! Let your little ones pick their favourite PJs, whether they're covered in dinosaurs or shooting stars. It's a chance for them to express their personality and get excited about bedtime.

  • Teeth Brushing: Turn tooth brushing into a dance party! Play their favourite tunes and make it a two-minute dance-off to ensure those pearly whites are squeaky clean. Who said dental hygiene can't be fun?

  • Storytime: Reading stories before bed not only helps your little one to enjoy books, but also helps to transport your kids to dreamland. You may even like to have a special spot in which you read. Our bestselling bean bags provide the perfect cosy space to do just that!

  • Lullaby: You may not love your singing voice, but your little one finds it pretty special. You may like to pick an easy to remember tune that helps to cue that sleep time is nearing. 

  • Snuggle Station: End the night with a cozy cuddle session. Share a few sweet words, a secret handshake, or just enjoy a warm embrace. It's the perfect way to show your love and relax your child into a dreamy state. 

  • The Perfect Environment: We all know the feeling of climbing into bed with fresh new linen. Little ones love it too! Ensure their beds are soft and snuggly, making them irresistible to climb into. We stock bedding that is made from the highest quality, breathable cotton and spandex blend making them ultra-soft, stretchy, and snuggly. Our designs are also exclusive to e&b co. 

Quality sleep is essential for growing minds and bodies. A consistent routine ensures that your mini-explorers are well-rested, ready to conquer the adventures of the next day. May your nights be filled with laughter, cuddles, and the joy of a well-rested household.
