If you're the mother of a baby or toddler, chances are, you've been struggling with setting a bedtime routine that works every night, without fail.

I've been there, and I'm delighted to share the simple steps that worked like a charm, every night, to get my babies to sleep.

1. Make the Decision

Time: 4:32 p.m.

As you pick macaroni and cheese off the ground around your baby's high chair, you decide on the spur of the moment that tonight, you'll get baby to sleep on time - maybe even ten minutes early!

- and enjoy some quiet time with your husband.

2. Try to Remember

Time: 4:36 p.m.

Alone time with the husband...

hmm...

you try to remember, did you shave your legs in the shower this morning?

Wait.

Did you SHOWER this morning?

3. Let the Hubs Know

Time: 5:03 p.m.

Even though heโ€™s only in the next room, text the hubs to let him know youโ€™ll be expertly momming the baby into bed early tonight, so he can do whatever he needs to do to prepare.

Itโ€™s been a while.

Youโ€™re a bit rusty on the sexytime ritual.

Hubs receives the message, reads it, and snorts laughter.

Perhaps you will read a book instead.

4. Tidy up

Time: 5:06 p.m.

Set baby in bouncy seat, play saucer, or on soft blanket on the floor with a variety of organic wooden toys, while you tidy the front room and kitchen.

Baby refuses to play with organic wooden toys, tries to chew on the edge of bouncy/saucer/blanket instead.

5. Relaxing Bath

Time 5:48 p.m.

Bedtime is fast approaching, so you run a warm, lavender-scented bath for baby.

Baby shrieks like a banshee and splashes lavender-scented water all over the bathroom.

You decide to join baby in the tub, since youโ€™re already drenched and youโ€™re needing a bath anyway.
