Bedtime Routine at 20 Months

on February 18, 2013

Our bedtime routine has been pretty much the same since we had Maretta and Shula. The timing for things has changed slightly over the last year and a half, but it’s always been: evening walk, bath time, bottle of milk, snuggles/book, and then down to sleep. It’s worked really well for us and I think the girls really thrive on the routine. When “walk time” rolls around the girls are bringing us shoes, jackets, and leashes even before we say anything! I think it shows that they enjoy knowing what’s going to happen next. I give you…

Bath Time!

Bath Time!

"Can I get fed yet please?"

“Can I get fed yet please?”

Brush, Brush, Brush!

Brush, Brush, Brush!

Storytime!

Storytime!

"Ooohh! Lemme pose for the camera!"

“Ooohh! Lemme pose for the camera!”

"Do I *have* to get under the blankets?!"

“Do I *have* to get under the blankets?!”

We start with our evening walk at 6pm and they are in their beds before 7pm. On good days they’re asleep within a half hour. On bad days… it can take anywhere from an hour to an hour and half for them to settle down. The fact that we’ve been doing virtually the same routine for a year and a half shows just how well it works though!
