I feel like our night time routine is in a state of constant change. When dealing with babies it can sometimes be hard to choose the sleep solution that is right for your family’s needs. I never used a crib with my oldest, but I knew this second time around I wanted to utilize it as a way for me to get in at least a few hours of quality sleep. By bundling my little man in his Halo SleepSack by Giggle Baby, I can sleep better knowing that my baby is sleeping safe and sound in his crib a few feet away.
Our night time routine is far from structured. Schedules stress me out. It’s silly, I know. Instead I use my baby’s cues to guide me. When he’s hungry he eats, when he’s dirty he gets a bath. When he’s tired he sleeps. It’s all very up in the air, but lately the routine has become more and more a part of our lives and something I have learned to work with.
Gaia goes to bed at eight o’clock. Anders goes down for a small nap at the same time, but wakes up again within the hour. He’s awake for another hour or so, then I change his diaper and slide him into his SleepSack. I breastfeed him while multitasking on the computer, and after about 30 minutes or so I can move him from my lap to his crib. Although he doesn’t stay asleep all night long in there, I can often stretch this crib time to about five hours. After that he comes to bed with us for the fuss-free remainder of our slumber.
I love the SleepSack because I don’t have to worry about my son getting cold or struggling with blanket positioning during the night. Having my baby in a SleepSack allows me to get a better night’s sleep because I know that I have safely eliminated common dangers to him while he’s alone in his crib.
