Do you have well established sleeping routine for your baby or toddler? Did you set up some daily habits or sleeping cues to make bed time easier? Children just like adults like the comfort of routine and habits. I believe sleeping cues are very useful to put the little angels to bed, making sure to choose some 'good' habits. A good sleep cue from a bad one? Bad sleep cues are inconvenient, demanding on you, and hard to wean, while good cues are easy to use and easy to wean.
What worked for our girls? Creating a familiar and comforting sleep cues. In the early months, we used a snug swaddle, white noise then we moved on the sleeping bag, pacifier and a favourite comfort toy 'doggy'. Wherever we go I will need those three things for a peaceful night. Those three sleeping cues are only available to my daughter Josefin at bed time, so they became a strong sleep association.
Next step getting the pacifier to go! Any suggestions?
At about 22 months Josefin is still happy in a sleeping bag... Unfortunately most of sleeping bags available on the market stop at size 18 months. It's been difficult to find a bag for children age +2.
Babysouk.com came to the rescue! They offer a good selection of bedding, swaddles sleeping bags, and linens... We love the The Merino Kids™ Go Go Bag™ is a 100% natural sleep bag, made from the finest natural Merino wool and 100% certified organic cotton. Known for its natural ability to regulate body temperature by capturing and circulating air to insulate child when the room temperature falls, and releasing excess body heat and moisture as the room temperature rises. Child stays warm and dry without overheating.
Top of the range, sleeping bag. Go Go Bag is not cheap but with its clever merino wool technology, you can use it all year round, making it more cost effective. The merino is very soft and warm yet breathable. It doesn't make the children sweaty. The beautiful quality is long lasting and the size from 0 to 2 years old and 2 to 4 years is also great value in the long run. We also love the special vent in it to put the car seat strap through. It’s particularly great for journeys without disturbing her sleep as the bag has a special vent in it to put the car seat strap through.
