Our Bedtime

Before Baby Aadhav, bedtime was “me” time. I used to love sitting with a cup of lemon infused hot water, while taking time to unwind and reflect after a busy day. Now bedtime is all Baby Aadhav time! And I love every moment of our laughs, cuddles, and fussy cries. In the evenings, Shiv and I make it a point to spend time with Baby Aadhav together. From what I hear, most babies go to bed around 7 pm. Not our little one! I give Aadhav a bath around 7 pm and from then till about 10:30pm he is wide awake (with a 15 min nap somewhere during that time). After 9 pm, Aadhav is super excited and very talkative. We usually FaceTime with the family and then try to have Aadhav start going to bed. We read our good night books, which Aadhav loves. After reading Aadhav starts to feel sleepy (finally!). I end the night with a DreamFeed and then Aadhav usually falls into a deep sleep. Sometimes he wakes up at 3 am for the next feed, other times he sleeps till about 5-6 am. I’m sharing our bedtime must haves with you. Thank you all for your comments and suggestions on my Diaper Bag Must-Haves post!

Our Bedtime Must Haves

  • Bath time: We love this baby bath tub with a soft cozy sling to support infants
  • Bath towel: Baby bath towels are so cute, I love the towels with the little animal hoods
  • Baby oil: We give Aadhav an oil massage after each bath. In Indian culture people give babies an oil massage before bath time but we like to do it after.
  • Cotton Swabs: I clean the outside and behind Aadhav’s ears with Snapkis Newborn Cotton Swabs. I love how gentle these are!
  • Pajamas: Baby pajamas – just so cute! These are a few of our favorites from Gerber and Carter
  • Bottle: Tommee Tippee perfect for a DreamFeed
  • Wipes: I like to wipe down Aadhav’s changing pad and table each night before bed
  • Good Night Books: Good Night Moon and The Going To Bed Book are our favorite
  • Cuddle Toy: While reading the books Aadhav holds his cuddle blanket and Sophie the Giraffe 
  • Let me know what I missed or if you have any suggestions!
