Toddler Talk Thursday!

Sippy Cup Mom

I am participating today in Toddler Talk Thursday for the first time! This is a really sweet link up hosted by The Life Of Sippy Cup Mom , Family and Life in Las Vegas, and Crazy About My Baybah! Each week there is a different subject to discuss about Toddlers! So after stalking for a while, I've decided to participate! You should too! 

This week's topic is.....
What is your toddler’s bedtime routine?

Noah has had a bedtime routine since he was about 6 weeks old and not much has changed since then. I really believe babies and toddlers thrive on routine and I definitely credit that routine to how well he slept as a baby and sleeps now as a toddler. 

When its time to get ready for bed, Noah first has a bath each night. We started this super early and now he knows bath time means its almost bedtime. After a bath we put on his diaper, lotion him up, and put on jammies. Then its time to brush his teeth with his awesome Dora toothbrush!  Then sometimes we read a book, and other times we skip that part. Then he gets tucked into bed with his stuffed monkey, we turn on his fan, kisses and hugs, and off to sleep he goes!  

We do this every night, even when we aren't at home and it seems to help bedtime go very smoothly each night! Noah sleeps about 12 hours each night too and like I said, I credit that to routine!! 

Here's little man in his toddler bed a few months ago! It's a phone shot so kinda blurry. (The paci is gone now, thank goodness!)

Now as part of the link up I have to suggest a let's see.... how about.... How do you and your toddler handle toddler tantrums?? 


  1. At 23 months my son is still doing pretty good with not throwing outrageous tantrums WOO HOO (so far!) In public he actually does very well and hasn't thrown a wicked tantrum yet, but he does throw some every once in a while at home. I usually ignore most of the behavior or try to talk to him calmly and tell him he is ok and it isn't that big of a deal. At this point, talking calmly to him and asking him what's wrong or what he wants calms him down and he tries communicating with us instead of going more wild. I really hope he keeps this up...that would be GREAT, but I'm not betting on it! :)

  2. Sounds like a great routine! :-)
