The back to school season can be quite a hectic one, especially this year as my oldest daughter will be attending school for the first time! In order to get her and my family prepped for this time of year, there is plenty to do in our house. That’s why maximizing the family’s productivity, even down to our youngest family member, is a must! I’ve found the best way to maximize productivity during the day is for the entire family to have a sound night’s sleep. That’s why we use nighttime diapers, which allow me to worry less about the middle of the night diaper changes which means a more settled and sound sleep for my little one and much more needed sleep for mom.
One thing that I have realized after three babies is that a routine, no matter what part of the day, helps your kids and you get through the day easier and stress-free. We have a nighttime routine that we follow every night and it definitely makes the transition of playtime to bedtime easier for everyone.
Our Nighttime Routine:
It consists of just five specific things.
Lotion + Oils
Change into Huggies OverNites Diapers
The first thing I do to begin winding everyone down is to give baths. After a bath, I can tell that everyone is calmer and more relaxed, which makes it easier for everyone to fall asleep. After bath time we do lotion all over and we use our favorite essential oils on the feet. While I’m applying our favorite nighttime oils I give a little foot massage. I find that foot massages help to relax everyone, especially the littlest one. He will sit so quietly while I am rubbing his little feet. He loves it, and who doesn’t love cute little baby feet? 🙂
After the lotion and oils, I will do one last diaper change before bed, switching him into his nighttime diaper Huggies OverNites Diapers. Sleep helps your baby thrive. That’s why it is important to provide your baby with hugs that settle and soothe at bedtime with a diaper designed specifically for sleep. Huggies OverNites Diapers keeps baby dry all night for a sounder sleep. Lennon sleeps really well throughout the night and with Huggies OverNites, I can let him sleep and not have to wake him up to change a soggy, full diaper.
