I think Jeff and I have found the perfect recipe for putting Mathew to bed. Here is our nightly routine.
- Bottle of formula (supplementing breastmilk with formula will help baby sleep longer, since it is more filling).
- Nightly Bath - Matthew loves bathtime and the warm water puts him in sleepy mode.
- A pair of snuggly fleece pajamas. He loves his pj's!
- Story and prayers.
- Swaddle with receiving blanket or swaddler.
- Ocean waves CD. This relaxing sound reminds baby of being in the womb and lulled Matthew right to sleep!
It was our first night of waking up only once! Ahhh....it was so nice.
