Bedtime Tips from AVEENO® Baby + GIVEAWAY!!! #BellezaEspontanea #AVEENO #Ad


Yes, I know I am not a mom but that does not mean I can't share some great tips for those who are. Many of our nephews and nieces are having babies so I am in the loop about all things baby.

One of the issues I hear from the new moms and dads is lack of sleep. It is super important for these new parents to create a bedtime routine so baby can sleep and they can also get some sleep. Creating a bedtime routine is very important. Luckily,  AVEENO® Baby Hispanic pediatrician,  Dr. Andres Cotton, has some simple and easy tips that new parents can use. Dr. Cotton recommends developing a bedtime ritual that includes using the AVEENO® Baby collection.

Here are some wonderful tips from Dr. Cotton:



Play some music: Playing some lullabies or classical music at a low volume as you put your child to bed can help assist with falling asleep.

Lighting: A soft night light is reassuring and helps the child feel safer. A child that feels protected and relaxed will fall asleep easier than a child that feels afraid in a pitch dark room.

Hugs and Kisses: It’s always a good idea to hug and kiss your child before bedtime, expressing how much you love them and giving them a sense of security right before sleepy time.

A warm bath and a light massage: Before bed, a warm bath with AVEENO® Baby Eczema Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash is a great way to start your child’s nightly ritual. During bath time put some toys in the tub so you can interact and play along with them. Once bath time is finished, use the new AVEENO® Baby Eczema Therapy Nighttime Balm to massage your baby’s limbs with gentle but firm strokes which will relax him, sooth any itchy skin and help him fall asleep faster and for a longer period of time.

Say goodnight to the moon and the stars: A quick look outside the door or window to take in the views of the stars and moon can help your child really understand the idea of nighttime, while taking in a bit of nature before bed time.

Read a bedtime story: Snuggling up with a good book to read to your child is a great way to calm them, lower their stress level and provide a distraction from the day’s activities, allowing the body to rest and fall asleep with ease.


I hope these tips help new parents with their babies. It is impotant to start out baby's life as peaceful and wonderful as possible. If you want to win a set of AVEENO® Baby products, then enter below.
