Sweet Dreams for Your Little One

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on March 4, 2009

sertaThey say that the secret to a good night’s sleep is a good mattress and pillow. “A worn mattress is like an old running shoe,” says Bert Jacobson, a professor of health and human performance at Okla­homa State University. “It loses its support and its comfort.”

Is this true for babies? Just as your own sleep is affected by the type of mattress you have, so does your baby’s crib mattress affect his sleep. Finding the right baby mattress is very important to help ensure a good night’s sleep for your little one.

We give the kids a bath, and then read each kid a bedtime story, and then it is light’s out.

One of our rituals is to sing lullabys til they finally fall asleep

With my son, after we eat dinner I give him his last jar of baby food for the day. Then a bath, then we get dressed and my daughter comes in and we read for a little while. Then his bottle, and he’s OUT! My daughter gets her bath after little man goes to bed, then we read a “big girl” book, and she watches a movie, (I know I know) and passes out.

We usually sit in my rocking chair in the baby’s room and listen to some very soft music while he drifts off. It is a nice end to the day for both of us.

When I was a kid I had one of those glo-worm dolls. I loved that when my mom turned out the light I was able to squeeze the doll and still have light if I was a little scared. The nice thing about gloworms is that the minute you get a bit tired and let go, the light turns off!

Our bedtime ritual consists of brushing our teeth and washing our faces. My little girl (2 years old) mimics everything I do while standing on her step stool. We go into the bedroom and say our prayers, then she tucks in her toys. She has to have the Turtle, the Baby, and the Bears or she won’t relax. Then it’s off to dreamland.

I’m going to be a grandfather soon.


Aniela R. March 18, 2009 at 7:03 am

After teeth brushing, we usually read a book, then say our prayers and I sing a special song to each of my kids before saying goodnight.

My favorite childhood bedtime memory is actually soon after we went to bed, my father would go downstairs and play the piano. I loved listening to the music as I fell asleep.


Teresa Hoyt March 18, 2009 at 9:38 am

In my house our routine is, bath time, story time, brush your teeth, tucked into bed, and a kiss goodnight! Thanks for the great contest!

I don’t have any yet since I have a month to go before I have my little one but I hope to read to her every night before she goes to bed.


Dianne Martinez March 18, 2009 at 1:44 pm

Oh, I am due next month this would come in handy and go to a great home.
Thanks for the chance.


Brian March 18, 2009 at 3:48 pm

We don’t have any bed time rituals yet. We are trying for our first child. Winning this would be a great omen.


Cynthia Tillett March 18, 2009 at 4:29 pm

A warm relaxing bath precedes bedtime.


Michelle H. March 18, 2009 at 7:38 pm

I cuddle my little guy at night until he goes to sleep.


Lily Kwan March 18, 2009 at 10:57 pm

I like to watch a late night talk show before going to bed.


Lily Kwan March 18, 2009 at 10:59 pm

My favorite childhood bedtime memory is talking with my dad before going to sleep.


James September 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Serta is definitely a great way to go for a wonderful mattress, no matter what age the sleeper will be. Hope it worked out for you :)
