I have a sure fire way to get a kid to go to sleep quickly!!!!

Ever since DD was a baby, to help her relax before bed, I've always rubbed her feet. She is almost 8 now, and absolutely loves it.

I just put her in bed, and I didn't get halfway to the door when I heard DD sit up and say :

Mama, are you going to rub my feet tonight? Please?

I turned around and went back, sat beside her, and she flopped one of her little feet in my lap. I swear to you it wasn't even 5 minutes and the kid was snoring!

I think I'm going to like this foot rubbing thing if she keeps going out as quickly as she did tonight!


What do you ladies do to get your LO's ready for bed?

I don't think that would work on my kids, they all have very ticklish feet. They get it from me.

My daughter doesn't fall asleep until about 11 D:
Unfortunately her father and siblings were exactly the same way.

Why? I love it. It gives me time with her and its something that we both love. She knows her mama will always be there for her.

I have a vanilla lavendar spray I mist out pillows with a few minutes before sleep.

It knocks my son out with a quickness. I've tried giving him foot rubs but I get kicked.

DD usually zonks out about after she eats supper. Tonight I kept her up a little later than I actually wanted because our favourite shows came on. Lol

I do a lotion massage before bed with both my kids, then we curl up with a story :)

Back or belly rubs. Usually the belly.
