Lately I've noticed that if we go out for dinner, and if bedtime is at least an hour after dinner, that our boy will wake up the next morning with a dry nappy.
So I'm trying to stretch out our bedtime routine to make sure there's an hour between the end of dinner and the start of our bedtime routine: potty, teeth, shower, bed.
But I'm finding it difficult. We usually go straight from dinner at 6:30pm-ish to the bathroom and bed at 7-7:30pm-ish. I'm making an effort to have dinner earlier at 6pm instead of 6:30pm... but then what do we do for an hour after?
I don't mind him watching 20 mins of telly on the weekends (Fri, Sat, Sun) but I've got a 'no TV' rule during the week. We clean up after dinner and that takes about 10/15 mins. Reading a few books takes another 10/15 mins... I don't want to do anything too exciting as it's time to wind down not up.
So please help! What DO YOU DO between dinner and bathtime? Any ideas?
