I'd love to hear from mums who have tips for getting their little ones off to sleep - the younger the children the better!
Perhaps you have a 'no telly' from a certiain time rule, to keep the home environment calm. Or you have learned what their cries mean and can describe them.
Do you particularly enjoy bathtime with your baby, or is that special time for Dad and little one?
Let us know and you could appear in the magazine!

We started Mia's bedtime routine but she got up some night fishing around for toys in the dark. She has a teddy that she goes to bed with 'Bear', not very original I know. Mia helps me to tell him what is expected. We tell him it's bedtime, to stay in bed, no playing with toys until the morningm no shouting and it's time to lay in bed and have nice dreams about all the things we can do tomorrow. She likes to wag her finger at him when she tells him. Then we ask Mia to help Bear be good and go to bed. It works most of the time.

We put a flexible routine in place very early on. Now Jacob's 3 months, I'm sure he knows that bathtime is the start of bedtime.
Bathtime is normally daddy & Jacob time - a gentle bath followed by cuddles, Sleepy Farm book (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sleepy-Farm-Cloth-Luana-Rinaldo/dp/1405050721) and bottle. He's put straight in his sleeping bag before bed and not during the day, so he can tell the difference. Usually works quite well!
