The JOHNSON’S® 3-Step Routine incorporates bath time and massage, two key rituals that help engage your baby’s sense of smell and touch while strengthening your bond and preparing baby for a good night’s sleep.
The unique 3-step routine from JOHNSON’S® is the first and only bedtime routine clinically proven* to help babies and toddlers sleep better in just one week.
Johnson’s 3 step plan
Step 1: Warm Bath
Bath time is the perfect way to start your baby’s pre-bed routine. Use a wash with an enjoyable and familiar scent, such as JOHNSON’S® Bedtime Bath, to help you soothe your baby before bed.
Along with engaging your baby’s sense of smell, bath time encourages skin-to-skin contact, which can lead to improved physiological, cognitive, emotional and social development.
Step 2: Baby Massage
A soothing massage is a wonderful way to help your baby feel secure, loved and ready for sleep. Use a lotion with a relaxing scent like JOHNSON’S® Bedtime Lotion.
Massage can also help you recognise and respond to your baby’s body language and it’s a great way to make your little one feel safe and secure. In fact, research has shown that along with better sleep, there are many other significant health benefits to baby massage, including bonding with your baby.
Step 3: Quiet Time – Settling to bed
After giving your baby a warm bath and a relaxing massage, it’s time to send your baby off to sleep with a little quiet time together.
Close contact between you and your little one helps calm your baby’s breathing, relaxing your baby for bed—a great reason for a post- bath cuddle.
Make sure you keep the atmosphere calm and cosy. If you choose to feed at this time, be sure not to feed your baby to sleep. Feeding could become something your baby expects, making it hard to change later. Instead, you can help your baby wind down further by reading or singing softly.
It’s best to avoid active play at this time, so your baby goes to bed sleepy but still awake. This will help baby learn how to self-soothe and get back to sleep on their own if they wake up during the night.
