    I still nurse my daughter to sleep (10 months old). Some people call it a bad habit, but it works like a charm and it doesn’t bother us one bit.

    With my son cuddling works. He loves being close to me and will fall asleep. Even at 5 he enjoys it. I am hoping it works with my rainbow who is coming in July.

    Warm bath, three books and his favorite cozy blanket typically do they trick. He also loves quiet ocean wave sounds as he drifts off.

    Warm bath, comfy pj’s, and lavender lotion is the best. Then falling asleep to a good relaxing Disney movie, he sleeps so sound!

    Another hormone that plays a role in sleep is cortisol, also known as the “stress hormone.” When cortisol levels are high, your child’s body won’t be able to shut down and go to sleep. Keeping before bedtime activities calm, the lights dim, and the environment quiet can help avoid excess amounts of cortisol in your child’s system. I would love to win Twinkling Firefly Frog for this little one to help her sleep better. Liked, shared, followed, signed up and twitted.

    We read a couple stories to the boys before bed, that usually can set the mood for sleepy time. If that fails, cuddles and a movie!

    We do rocking and nursing. For my oldest we do books, family chat time, and movie in bed together until he falls asleep. I am also a huge believer in essential oils.

    I have 3 boys who sleep so well. I do have a trick. Song while rocking gently the same song every night. Keep the song simple and short and do not change it. Do not hold longer than the song even the days you want to stand there for an hour. (I know it is hard) Put baby down with a loving goodnight– keep it short and relaxing. Make sure you can do the same exact routine even on the days you have the flu or whatever. This short easy routine will keep the button pushing and (Maybe I’ll get her to hold be longer if I …..) down to a minimum. The repetition will make it so babe will always know what to expect and if your song (Mine is the ABC’s) is a learning song, they will learn it sooner because it is every night. The short– soothing sounds, calm attitude are perfect for a good night rest.

    We have a starry night humidifier and we have, since the day she was born, had a music box that plays calming music whIle she is going to sleep. She is almost 3 and still uses it. As a baby she also loved the playskool light up sea horse that played music and had a soft glowing light. It was perfect to help her sleep and feel soothed.

    My Sensory Darling has a weighted blanket (lap sized and not too heavy for night time safety), her best monkey stuffies MUST be with her and a CD of nature sounds, soothing instrumentals or Passenger’s “All The Little Lights” must play until she is asleep. (Unknown why she attached herself to this band nor why the song “Let Her Go” has held her scattered attention since she was an infant!)

    For my son we draped blankets on his crib sides so he felt like he was in a little cloud. We also put a sheet over the crib as well. With a ligh above it shining in as the sheet disbursed the soft light and felt like the moon. He really liked that. My daughter now uses his toddler day bed and she loved these ideas.

    Routine is great, bath, books and bed; but don’t be surprised when it doesn’t always work, kids are just tiny versions of us, they have off days. We also love a sound machine and our tranquil turtle!

    My sleep tip is massaging a little bit of lavender essential oil on (third eye) neck, and back. Puts my babies right to sleep

    My sleep tip for baby is to give her lots of cuddles and read to her for 20 minutes before I put her down in her crib.

    Trying to stick to a routine every night (bath time, brush teeth, pjs, story, and lights out). Sometime a back, face, head or feet massage if they are restless. No screen time at night.
