    Default Sleep time routine

    Hi there, I've just realised that my poor son hates me putting him down for naps because I simply take him, wrap him up and put him to bed with no wind down time! What are some ideas I can do after I see the first yawn?

    Sing a special song? If you use the same one each time he will then associate that with going to sleep

    Or a nice little foot massage too? Anything that's calming.m

    Also - try talking about it before you do it - "ok nearly nap time, I'm going to wrap you up soon". "Ok I am wrapping you up now" Eric. You would be surprised how much they understand
