Sleep when they sleep – it’s one of the first pieces of advice we receive AND give as parents. However, the reality is life happens and sleep sometimes doesn’t work its way into nap schedules or bedtimes that necessarily match those of our children. I must admit though, I was pretty fortunate in that all of my children were “sleeping through the night” by the time they were three months old. It was a blessing that I may have taken for granted, because now that the girls are older something in their sleep patterns has changed – no longer are they “sleeping like a baby.”
About a year ago I found that they were having trouble sleeping through the night and we tried to tighten up our bedtime routine, which helped. But then life happened again and slowly but surely bedtime routines became choppy at best – and we’ve found ourselves sleeping less because the girls aren’t sleeping well. Ready to reclaim my peaceful nights, and more importantly my bed, I downloaded the JOHNSON’S® BEDTIME® Baby Sleep App and took the Tonight We Sleep™ 7-day challenge.

The 7-day challenge will help you get into the groove of a calming and peaceful 3-step bedtime routine.
JOHNSON’S® 3-Step BEDTIME® Routine – clinically proven to help baby fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer!
JOHNSON’S® BEDTIME® Baby Sleep App will help guide you in creating a bedtime routine which includes bath time, a relaxing body massage for your little one and the importance of quiet time – when combined give little ones a better night’s sleep. Our girls really enjoy the quiet time part of our bedtime routine. Each night before they have to head to bed, they are given 5 minutes with one of us, to just lay, read a book or cuddle.
With quiet time in mind, JOHNSON’S® BEDTIME® Baby Sleep App includes lullabies that have been handcrafted and selected for their specific musical notes with the comfort of babies in mind and how these sounds will help babies sleep. The Tonight We Sleep™ Lullaby was carefully crafted to enhance the bedtime routine, help lull children to sleep and allow them to sleep soundly. With the ability to create our own ambient sounds using the Tonight We Sleep™ lullaby, we’ve now incorporated the lullaby playlist we created into the 3rd step – quiet time, for sleepy eyes.
A study found that 80% of babies exposed to white noise fell asleep; compared to only 25% of those not exposed to white noise and 2 out of 4 infants are sung to or listen to music an hour before bed. These sounds help to calm and relax children during the quiet time they need before bed. The app has helped our family get back on track with our bedtime routine and the girls area going to sleep in a much more calm atmosphere.
