REAL Newborn Night Time Routine 2019

music aha today I wanted to share with you Onyx’s
nighttime routine everything that we do to soothe him and calm him down and get
him ready for bed he’ll be three weeks old as of today and I’m really excited
to make this video I know this will be something special that I can look back
on when he gets older and also I think it might be helpful for other new Mamas
if you’re a new mama and you have a new baby let me know in the comments below
and let’s do this the very first thing that we do is nix is we actually do a
night time routine bath ease this is something that we’ve done with all of our newborn
babies I know it may seem a little odd but I do pop into the bathtub with them
and just talk to them and tell them how amazing they are and what I love about
them this is a really special opportunity to bond and a nice way for
baby to calm down before bed before I start to wash Nicks I’ll actually do a
breast feeding session which i think is really nice because you’ll be emerged in
the water and then I can start washing his hair sometimes I’ll do it in his
baby bathtub but a lot of times I will do it in the actual bathtub he prefers
this way but I do have to warn you if you do this at home that he does poop on
me occasion occasionally but it’s still super special and a lot of times he will
fall asleep in the bathtub when I take him out he hates the
transfer so he’s a little bit furious but I’ll go ahead and give him a pass
see and just brush his hair and try to calm him down one thing that I do to
calm him down I’ve been using this protective bomb by beautycounter and I
really like it but I will go ahead brush his hair and try to give him a baby
massage some days he is totally feeling it and he loves every minute of it and
other days he is just mad and he wants to just nurse and go to bed
today happened to be one of those days where he wasn’t feeling it but I’ll go
ahead and put the bomb on him this is a very thick texture I also like to use
coconut oil because he has that really feeling newborn skin right now so I’ll
do that as well and I always like to make sure that his diaper is secure and
on correctly my husband does it really loose and every single time I lay him
down when it’s too loose he’ll actually just wet out the back or wet out the
side once I finally get him soothed and
calmed down I’ll go ahead and get him dressed this is usually around 8 o’clock
where we’ll chat together we’ll do tummy time we have our own little routine
where he usually stays awake for a good stint of time and I like to just spend
as much time with him as I can on this particular night he didn’t want anything
to do with tummy time he just wanted to be held and be talked to which I’m
totally okay with watching this back I’m like oh my gosh I look like such a
goofball but honestly that’s motherhood where your baby your newborn baby has
perfectly brushed hair and your hair just looks like a hot mess or at least
it does for me then I’ll go ahead and start with his first feeding of the
night my son is a cluster feeder so he does a lot of cluster feeds in the very
beginning of the night where he will feed for just a short period of time and
fall asleep really really quickly sometimes he’ll only nurse for like five
minutes and he’ll fall straight asleep so he
didn’t have enough time to fill his belly all the way however I kind of just
let him do it however he wants to do it and I just follow his pace I’m a night owl so I actually stay up
really really late one of the things that I will do is I will go ahead and
put an entire barrier of pillows around the bed so that Onix can be right next
to me if I’m awake and I’m able to see him I’m okay if he sleeps right next to
me during that duration if I’m sleeping I definitely want him in the bassinet
but while I’m awake I’ll go ahead and let him snuggle right next to me finally
time to get him ready for bed I will go ahead and turn on the comm app this app
is amazing it is a little bit expensive I’m going to warn you I found out about
it from Rachael Talbott she talked about it in one of her videos and I went ahead
and downloaded it I loved it and the two sounds that I like to listen to at
nighttime are the reef or the ocean but you could also just download music on
your computer or anywhere you don’t have to have this app in order to have
awesome music to sleep to but it’s really soothing like I said my favorite
one is the reef and it really helps Sonics sleep good and then I like to
have some snacks by my bed my husband went ahead and brought it me up some
snacks which is so sweet of him he brought up popcorn which is my all-time
favorite snack then I’ll go ahead and turn off the lights and turn on our blue
lights I don’t know why but when we moved into this house we had these blue
neon lights and me and my husband like thought to ourselves we will never use
these lights and since Nix has been home we use them every night so I will go
ahead and turn on a show I’m just watching Kardashians tonight and just
snacking on my popcorn and drinking my water since I’m breastfeeding I feel
like all I do is eat and drink water like I am constantly thirsty and
constantly hungry and then I will just go ahead and watch my show this is one
of my favorite times because I love to watch new babies sleep and be next to
them and he still gets that opportunity to be really close to mama you I think I was about 30 minutes later and
he went ahead and woke up because he was ready for his next feeding then I’ll go
ahead and feed onyx this happens to be one of his longer feeding sessions I
wish there was like some sort of rhythm or I could say oh he sleeps or wakes
every two or three hours but honestly it’s so random and like I said I like to
do whatever baby wants to do or whatever babies instinct is I will go ahead and
follow his schedule I didn’t realize this until watching the
footage but I smile every time I get a burp out of him and once I’m done with our feeding I
will actually lay them down in the hallo bassinet this is right next to the bed I
love that and then I’m gonna head downstairs
I drink probably ten glasses of water a day like I said I’m always thirsty so
I’m gonna go downstairs the Berkey and just fill up my water and get another
snack I know this seems so bad but like I said all I do is eat and drink two of
my favorite foods in the entire world peanut butter and bananas let me know in
the comments below one of your all-time favorite foods then when I came back from snack onyx
was already ready for another feeding this is about the point where I started
to get really really tired – and my eyes start to get heavy and I’m I’m almost
ready for a bed as well one of the really cute things about Nicks
is that he loves to sleep with my breasts underneath his chin so that if
he wakes her startles he can just tilt his head down and still Hooters and then I’ll go ahead and lay him down
again when I lay him down I like to pretend like he’s still really close to
me and hold on him until he’s in that perfect position and then let go I feel
like I’m playing the game don’t wake daddy whenever I lay onyx
down she’s any other mama feel like that I feel like it every single time and then I’ll go ahead and just like
watch my show and if he gets fussy at all just go
ahead and give him a pass II when it gets a little bit later into the
evening I’ll actually do a sleep in feed where I lay down with him I won’t follow
sleep but I will lay down with him and let him fall asleep laying down this is
nice because it’s one of onix’s favorite positions to nurse he loves it he is
super comfortable the bad thing about this position is that it can cause a
little bit more acid reflux but he loves this if he could have it his way he
would do sleep in peds every single time I will end up feeding him for almost 30
minutes this is when he does one of those really long feeding sessions which
is totally okay with me and then I ended up waking up one last time to give him a
feed tonight and I hope you guys like this video if
you did give it a thumbs up and thank you so much for watching
