My little one is 7 weeks old and I have been bathing him every night for the past 3 weeks to try and get him into a bedtime routine. He now loves his bath so much that it seems to wake him up and he wants to play for hours.
Last night he didn't settle until midnight, but tonight I put him to bed at 8 with no bath and he went straight down!
Does anyone else have this problem? I guess I should stop the evening bath?
DD (11 weeks) is the same. She gets so excited in the bath, kicking and splashing about. No matter how tired she is getting into it - she will instantly come alive again! I've given up bathing her at night now, and save it for every other morning.
Our night time routine now is dim the room, put some relaxing music on low, give her a quick wash down/nappy change and then spend 5 minutes giving her a massage with bedtime oil, changed into babygrow, swaddle, feed, sleep. Works much better
