bedtime routine






Sleep is one of the most important factors in releasing growth hormones, most especially for very young babies.While your baby sleeps, her little body produces 3x more growth hormones.

The good news is there is a way to promote better sleep for your baby: through a consistent nightly bedtime routine.

Learn more about the JOHNSON´S® Baby Bedtime Routine, clinically proven to stretch your baby´s sleep by as much as 23%.

In addition to the JOHNSON´S® Baby Bedtime Routine and products, there are countless other ways you can help your baby fall asleep and even share bonding moments in the process!



I find that toddlers have different sleep issues compared to babies. As a baby, Daniella Nicole would sleep sounding in a soothing cot after a calming ritual of back rubs and lullabies. Now a little bit older, she would get out of bed and make unreasonable demands as a toddler.

Fortunately I was able to find a routine that works and got my daughter to make the transition from a baby bedtime to a “big kid” bedtime. Her bedtime routine consists of: wash-up, comfortable pajamas, stories, cuddle and sleep. I try to get my toddler into a relaxed state, thirty minutes before bedtime, and ensures that she has no reason to get up-- - she’s been to the toilet, she’s had a little water , has no bedroom trouble in settling herself, and it’s clear that I expect her to stay in bed.

Getting her to sleep through the night ensures that my child gets enough sleep, while I get time to myself.

How do you create the right environment for your child to stay in his own bed all night? Share your own bedtime routine for a chance to win 500-worth of prizes!
