When my oldest son was born, I made plenty of typical “new mom” mistakes and one of the biggest ones was waiting for my baby to fall asleep each night instead of putting him to bed at a regular time. It meant that I was often sitting up rocking my little one until well after midnight only to have him waking up four hours later ready to start his day. Needless to say, I was exhausted.
I had a hard time believing that setting a regular bedtime for an infant of less than a year could make a difference, but within three days of adhering to a regular bedtime, I was a convert. The difference was phenomenal! My baby was falling asleep quickly and sleeping for longer periods of time. And finally I could get some rest too!
Even with a regular bedtime, however, both of my boys have had problems sleeping through the night. Johnson’s Bedtime Bath and Johnson’s Bedtime Lotion have been clinically proven to help babies fall asleep faster and sleep better at night and recently I had the chance to see if the products would help improve my boys’ sleep routine.
