Bedtime Routine

We are trying to start a bedtime routine for Anjali. The word "routine" is a bit more for us then for her but the end results are for her to start differentiating between night and day sleep. The challenge is that we have to start before she takes an early evening nap and then we have a wide -awake baby on our hands. This means starting at 6p or 7p which is difficult to do because of work, time, etc. Today, we were able to give her a relaxing bath and she didn't cry when she came out. Then, we dressed her and tried to start the massage. We are taking an infant massage class that we started yesterday. But being new to this, we were having problems with the setup and we lost her very quickly. Maybe we would have lost her anyways. She had a wet diaper, then she was hungry and then finally, after some carrying, pottying, burping, and feeding she settled down for the night in her snugglewool. We turned on the beautiful music from Uma for her. (www.umapai.blogspot.com). And she is now in dreamland.

ah, the bedtime routine. we're back to putting her down before we go to bed. sometimes it takes a while, but i figure the more i nurse her the longer she can stay asleep! plus, now i'm facing going back to work so i need her to go to sleep early with me. so.....good journeying with the bedtime thing.
