*We were gifted Baby Born products for the purpose of this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own.
Every parent knows how important it is to get their kids into a good bedtime routine. When you’ve had a busy day, getting the offspring settled down and ready for bed easily is essential. A bedtime that doesn’t go to plan is stressful for everyone involved and will probably mean the quality of sleep everyone’s about to get will be poor. So this week, we’ve teamed up with Baby Born, to help teach our littles the importance of a good bedtime routine.
To help reinforce a good bedtime routine in our home, Baby Born sent over their Bath Wash Basin. It’s a lovely product that comes with a basin and tap that pumps real water, a rubber duck, toothbrush, cup and light up mirror. The mirror also plays fun sound effects. The basin has allowed our girls to ‘teach‘ their Baby Born dolls how they get themselves ready for bed. It makes the bedtime routine fun and it takes the kids minds off of the fact that it’s nearing the end of the day!
Our bedtime routine –
Our girls know when it’s time to begin getting ready for bed, as we head off upstairs for a bath. They get their teeth brushed whilst we’re up there too and since they got their basin, that’s their favourite thing to do with their dolls. The mini tooth-brush and mug are great for their imaginations. You can hear them telling their dolls just how important it to keep their teeth nice and clean!
They both love that the sink has real running water too. Their faces lit up when they realised they could actually wash their dolls, just like they do before bed. All of this is accompanied by the brushing and washing sound effects and the fabulous light up vanity mirror. The littlest is a huge fan of the lights and does a little jig to the Baby Born music!
Baby Born leading the way –
I think that this product is a great way to get the littles to understand their bedtime routine better. Allowing them to look after and go through their own bedtime routine with their dolls, helps to reinforce the positive aspects of a healthy regime and a good nights rest. When the girls’ get their pyjamas on after getting themselves clean and ready, so does their little doll. There’s no better way to get the kids so involved in creating the ideal bedtime routine!
