Our Fifteen Month Old Toddler’s Bedtime Routine

Review

Bedtime is one of my favorite times of the day. Well, I have many favorite times of the days that I am with my little ones actually! šŸ™‚ Bedtime though gives Addy and I some one on one time, while LA and Daddy have some one on one time. Our bedtime routine hasn’t changed much since LA was born. We like to keep them on a schedule and we like to have consistency in their routine. Here’s how we do bedtime in our home.

Our Toddler’s Bedtime Routine

  • Wash-up or Bath first. We DO NOT bathe our kids every day. I know, I know. Go ahead and get the yelling and judging over with. šŸ˜‰ We have been advised by our children’s pediatrician that we should not bathe them daily because of their eczema. SOOOO, we bathe them approximately three times a week or roughly every other day. I typically bathe Addy and hubby typically bathes LA. We wash them, let them play and then massage and moisturize their skin with something like CJs BUTTer or Angel Baby Lotion from Earth Mama Angel Baby, both of which have been great for their skin!
  • Get dressed for bed! Pajama time! They love pajama time, probably because they are super comfy clothes, but who doesn’t love pajamas!? After pajamas, Addy also gets into her Early Walker SleepSack from Halo. (More on this amazing product below!)
  • Story Time! We make it a point to do either a story every night (LA’s absolute favorite story right now is Green Eggs and Ham) or go through flash cards for item/word recognition. Yes, they are young but they enjoy it and it’s never too early to start educating them, right? šŸ˜‰
  • Time to brush teeth! We brush their teeth while we sing the ABC song to them! It’s a good length and they know that when the song is over mama or daddy are done with their teeth and then it’s their turn to brush! Although they don’t brush the best just yet, I believe it’s important to let them get into the habit and learn to brush themselves.
  • One on one time! As I mentioned earlier, daddy puts LA to bed and mama puts Addy to bed. At this time we go into separate rooms and get the little ones to bed. LA and hubby go into LA’s room to lay down. Addy and I go into hubby and I’s room. We lay down, I sing to her, we say our prayers and I nurse her to sleep. Once she’s asleep I pick her up and walk her to her crib, kiss her goodnight and put her down for the night. <3

That’s our routine. It’s been like that since LA was born…other than story time, brushing teeth and separate rooms which, of course, weren’t done when he was a newborn. šŸ™‚ I like our routine. It gives up quality time with them each night and I believe it helps to teach them personal hygiene and stimulates their brains!

Halo’s Early Walker SleepSack Makes Freedom Easy

I wanted to explain a bit further what Addy’s Early Walker SleepSack is. You see, Addy has been on the move for the past several months and she’s gotten a bit frustrated with her SleepSacks because she can’t stand easily and walk around in her crib. I was saddened at the thought that we may have to eliminate SleepSacks from her bedtime routine but was super excited when I learned about these genius Early Walker SleepSacks that would be perfect for her!

Early Walker SleepSackHALOĀ Innovationā€™s SleepSackĀ® wearable blankets have become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike.

EarlyWalker

My sweet, sleepy baby girl is all ready for bed in her Early Walker SleepSack from Halo! She has something against socks and never leaves them on. This is typical of her right before bed…taking off the socks. <3 You can see her feet hang out of the SleepSack so she can easily walk! I am in love with this innovative idea that makes life easier for Addy!

SleepSackHappy

You can see just how happy Addy is in this photo with her Early Walker SleepSack! You can also clearly see how easy it would be for her to stand and walk in this SleepSack since her feet are free!

Move around with Early Walker from Halo

Her freedom is much appreciated as you can tell! She moves her legs and feet all around and doesn’t have a problem being confined into a SleepSack! She’s quite happy, and so am I! <3

Safe Sleeping with Halo

She fell asleep safely and comfortably with Halo. I’m comfortable knowing she’s safe and we’re both at peace! šŸ™‚

    I really wish Halo would make a cotton version of the early walker sleep sack. I bought the polyester knit one thinking it might be a good alternative for warmer weather, and while it was nice and soft when it arrived and after the first wash or two, after a couple of weeks of wear it has started to pill. Very annoyed and disappointed in the fabric. As for the fit, it is the same as the polyester mesh and the fleece ones. My 15 month old is 31.5″ and 25 lbs and they 18-24 month fit him with a little room to spare (but he can still walk in them without tripping).

    • Hi Tami! If I were you I would contact their customer service number and let them know about the pilling. We haven’t had any issues with our yet and we’ve washed it probably 7-8 times. I’m sorry you had problems with yours. šŸ™

    I really really really like the Micro-Fleece Big Kid’s SleepSackĀ® Wearable Blanket. My youngest (he is 3) refuses to keep covers on him at night but he hates the sleep sacks that keep his feet all bundled in. This looks awesome!
