Reading books with your baby at night before bed is a great way to help establish a routine. Babies respond well to routines. For instance, after pearl has her bath, we cuddle in the rocking chair and read books. The instant we start reading, she settles down and realizes it’s almost time to go to bed. Then, I swaddle & feed her, and she falls asleep.
Even if you think your baby is too young to understand the book, read it anyway! It is a great way to bond with your child and teach them words. Pearl loves pictures of animals. Her favorite book right now is “Noodle Loves Bedtime“
