The routine is soothing to the kid, and puts the body into calm down mode, the Child can predict what's coming next, and knows it eventually leads to sleep.

For the parent on the other hand, this is also a calming time, an opportunity to give undivided attention to the child and just shut off all the issues that axist in the "adult world"

The best part of this is that creating a bedtime routine for babies is a great idea since they are most likely to stick with this routine through their lifetime.

First things first: Getting ready for bed.

Cluster activities that can be repeated daily, you could start with shower or bath if you do that at night, teeth brushing and then diaper change before having the baby in his/her nightwear.
