    We never successfully developed any kind of “routines” for our kids – our parenting strategies mostly centred around recognising that our children were people too and trying to figure out what they needed and wanted – even if they were not able yet to verbalise what it was. We didn’t always succeed at that either but I think we did alright and our (grown up) children are pretty damn good so…

      They are very lovely! Yes, Willow is 5 months today and she still has absolutely no interest in a routine, so we’re just going with the flow. It sounds like bottle fed babies are a bit easier to force into a system perhaps?

    My granddaughter (3) has a bedtime book called teddy bears one to ten. It always comes after a couple of other stories and signals that it really is sleeptime. now whereas to start with it was the only bedtime read. She used also to have a doll which played soothing noises when her parents had left the room. There are also various apps with these noises on too. The storybooks are now sufficient.

      Yes, we’ve played lullabies and white noise but it doesn’t really make too much of a difference. When she’s really low we have a little sing though.
