Let’s be honest, there is nothing normal about this school year. Whether your kids are going back to school or distance learning, nothing is what we expected.
Back to School Bedtime Routines
No matter what your start of the school year is like, there are a few things you can do to make things feel a little “more normal.” Read some of my tips, plus get a coupon to save $1 off on Baby Magic, something that’s crucial for our bedtime routine, and enter to win $100 from Baby Magic!
How long should your child sleep?
I don’t know about you, but my kids have been staying up WAY later than usual. Even though we are starting our school year at home, we still need to get back to a regular routine.
The advice varies, but the general recommendation is 10-12 hours a night, as they grow older and get more homework this obviously gets tougher, but sleep is important! If this is a struggle for you, just start moving back bedtime in 15-20 minute increments until your child is getting a good nights sleep.
Keep your bedtime routine consistent.
Keeping a consistent bedtime routine is important. A bedtime routine helps give them a sense of security and support. It definitely makes things easier. One of our bedtime routines most nights is a bubble bath! We use Baby Magic Calming Baby Bath. The The hydrating and tear-free formula contains Lavender & Chamomile and is so relaxing. We follow up our bath with Baby Magic Calming Lotion. My ten year old daughter especially loves this as part of her routine before she falls asleep.

Limit screentime before bed
After you’ve taken your relaxing Baby Magic bubble bath, set the screens aside. Chances are, your kids have been on screens almost ALL day. Instead of one last video, find a bedtime activity that’s more relaxing and will help them fall asleep.
