When you bring a new baby home for the first time, I don’t think you are prepared for the lack of sleep. I know with my first, I was like “why didn’t anyone tell me about this?” Well, the good news is that the more kids you have, the more you realize how much sleep you lose when you have a newborn.
Here are some tips I’ve picked up over the years to help my whole family get more sleep.
Create a bedtime routine
Something that has really helped us over the years is getting the babies into a bedtime routine. Getting them all excited and then laying them down never works. Instead, creating a bedtime routine has helped us get everyone to bed a little more calmly. A nice bath, a story, and a little snuggling helps everyone fall to sleep a little easier.
Put on some white noise
This has been one of the best ways my family has gotten more sleep. White noise is basically just a fan noise in the background to help drown out all of the crazy sounds. It’s amazing how many noises come about at night. Drowning out those extra noises helps my whole family sleep a lot better.
Use Pampers Diapers
Finally, another decision we made a long time ago was to use Pampers diapers for our kids. Pampers Diapers provide overnight protection that can help you baby sleep more at night. More sleep means that everyone is super happy the next morning. Guess what else I love about Pampers? Pampers has partnered with Dana Vollmer, for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, her first Olympic Games since giving birth to her son, Arlen, last March.
I think we can all agree that when a baby is sleeping, they have a chance to dream. By offering overnight protection in their diapers, Pampers helps little babies dream, even longer! Join my family and Pampers with their celebration of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on their social channels throughout the Rio 2016 competitions.
Dana decided to get back into swimming, thanks to her family. She has a goal of winning this year’s Olympics. Dana was committed to getting back into swimming after becoming a mom, so that her baby son, Arlen, could grow up recognizing the importance of hard work and get inspired from a young age. She wanted Arlen to grow up seeing his mom achieving her dreams as a competitive swimmer, and hopefully, ignite his own passions for success.
