A few days ago we talked about rituals in labor, and how they can help someone in labor cope.
Let’s talk rituals surrounding bedtime!
Rituals surrounding bedtime can be a wonderful bonding experience between your baby and you! Creating a pattern of feeding, activities, and songs can create sleepy cues for your baby, signaling to them that it’s time for bed!
Plus, those rituals may continue throughout their entire childhood! (Our 10-year-old still gets the same prayer/song combo she had as a newborn. Per her request.)
What rituals are you planning to create with your newborn?
What rituals do you already have in place for your children?
