Nurturing Steps Lullabies and Bedtime Series + GIVEAWAY! Ends 12/13

*We partnered with Zonderkidz for this giveaway. All thoughts and opinions are those of our own and were not influenced in any way.

Bedtime with my toddler consists of a lot of snuggles. She’s mostly dropped naps from her routine so she finally goes to bed earlier but not without plenty of snuggles. The best way to snuggle with her and also encourage positive reading habits, is to read stories to her. Our new favorite bedtime stories are Let’s Get Ready for Bed and Nighty Night and Good Night, by Michael W. Smith and Mike Nawrocki. My fellow Christian mamas might recognize both of those author names from Christian music and the famous Veggie Tales!

Nurturing Steps is a series for infants and toddlers, using storytelling and music to inspire hope and faith. The stories include a link to an accompanying lullaby. In Nighty Night and Good Night, the stuffed animal band called the Nighty Nights are trying to help their friend Ben fall asleep. They try several things and then find that a lullaby is the answer! Let’s Get Ready for Bed walks us through Puppy’s night time routine as he gets ready for bed. I think this is a great way to encourage proper bedtime routines for your little ones because they see these fun characters going through those motions!

My toddler and I settle down on the couch or in my bed and we read these stories together. I do funny voices and she laughs. We sing the songs together and then I give her a little kiss before she heads to bed for the night. It’s a really beautiful way for me to ensure that we get our individual time together every day.

Nurturing Steps is a series for infants and children featuring stories and lullabies that encourage hope and faith.

Both of these stories are so adorable for children ages 0-4, perfect for my toddler. I think they both make for wonderful additions to the winding down routine in the evening. If your toddler is like my toddler, they fight sleep and they just love cuddling. I’m fairly certain that they ALL love being read to. These big and bright pictures, entertaining bedtime stories, and pretty lullabies make for such soothing moments to spend with your children.

  1. First I would like to comment that I am submitting an entry for my daughter. I read to my daughter to help her fall asleep and it was good bonding time. She now reads to hers. And I have a second one on the way.

  2. Bath, brush teeth, go potty, pajamas on (with mommy), then daddy tags in, 2 stories, he picks one, she picks one (or sometimes wants to make one up on her own), snuggles, mommy tags in for the finishing tuck-in and kiss goodnight! We turn on the special nightlight, turn out the lights, say we love each other then go to sleep.

  3. Brush the teeth, pjs, prayers, reading and songs, hugs and kisses and need a glass of water or have to go to the bathroom….more hugs and kisses and usually settles into bed.

  4. My family is just expanding in March but as of now it’s mom to be falls asleep on couch each night after dinner and TV, then dad to be follows after watching hockey. I’m sure this will change drastically soon!

  5. We gather for a family prayer, then we brush our teeth, change into jammies, have a bedtime story and then say personal prayers. We then climb into bed for hugs and kisses.

  6. My daughters never want to go to bed! We read books, brush our teach, sing songs, spray for bugs and monsters, hugs and kisses, bathroom… It usually takes at least a half hour to get them to bed.

  7. They each get a snack, take their baths and after they are tucked in for the night I read them a bedtime story.

  8. After the kids brush their teeth and dress in their pajamas we go up to bed and have story time and then they go to bed. Routined, bed at 730.

  9. Our bedtime is smoother than most! We tend to crash at the end of the day. Even my granddaughter is a natural sleeper.

  10. Don’t really have one here, since are working with grandchildren and bedtime is a ‘treat’ to be different from home. Always a bedtime story though.

  11. My baby girl’s current routine is some solid foods, followed by bath time, then I top her off before putting her to bed with her song and light up owl.

  12. My family’s bedtime routine is pretty much the same as everyone else in that we go to bed early after brushing our teeth and setting our alarms.

  13. When my grandkids are here which is 3 nights a week, We take baths first, then we have a snack, brush teeth and read a book before bed time. We always start 1 hour before bedtime for a wind down. It really helps them go to sleep faster.
