Do you remember the first time your baby slept through the night?
I do. He was just a few weeks old and I literally woke up every hour on the hour to make sure he was ok. It lasted for two days and then we went back to him waking up every three hours. Over the next few months, I tried everything I could think of to get him to sleep through the night again, but those mythical nights were few and far between.
I was never fond of the ‘sleep training’ concept and would go to him when he woke up, whether it was once, or twice through the night…
Skin care brand Johnson’s has developed a 3-Step Bedtime Routine, to help babies and toddlers 7 to 36 months sleep better in just one week.
To create this they studied 45,000 babies sleep, observed 300,000 sleep sessions, collaborated with more than 30 experts around the globe while authoring 100 pieces of scientific content.
So what’s the secret?
Consistency, along with their Bedtime products that feature a proprietary blend of aromas designed to soothe and calm your baby in preparation for sleep.
A bedtime routine including a warm bath lets your baby know it’s time to sleep.
A massage as part of your baby’s sleep routine can help your baby sleep better. Johnson’s bedtime products are designed to soothe babies, while leaving their skins soft and smooth.
Quiet time activities like singing, reading or listening to music allows your baby to unwind.
I love this routine because it is a more natural way of getting your baby to sleep. No tears, just love, comfort and happiness.
After 2 weeks, parents reported their babies fell asleep 37% faster, woke up 38% less and slept up to an hour later. This translated into happier moms as well! They were 22% more energized, 54% less angry and 36% less tense.
Through their research, Johnson’s has found that parents in the UK have the most consistent bedtimes routines, with 80% of parents following the same regime more than 4 nights a week. This has benefit to these families as their babies sleep an average of 10 hours and 31 minutes a night and wake the least amount per night for just 22 minutes.
Johnson’s bedtime products are paraben free, hypoallergenic and created with an exclusive aroma that contains essences of Jasmine Blossoms that are designed to calm your child for sleep.
