Hi All. I'm hoping to get some examples of bedtime routines, or rituals, that you do or did with your babies, to help signify to them that it's time to go to bed for the night. I was thinking that bedtime routines were for older kids, say a year old or so, but I just heard about establishing a routine for your infant too.
For a few weeks now, my son had been sleeping a good 8-10 hours at night, from somewhere around midnight each night to around 9:30 a.m., with just needing to be patted, rewrapped, given a pacifer, etc. around 6:00 or 6:30 a.m. But recently he is much more restless at night now, over night, and I have to get up many times to pat, rewrap (he's still swaddled), rub, etc.
Any ideas on bedtime routines for babies this young, or reasons for sudden night restlessness? He has recently begun teething too.
