** WIN ** “Goes to Sleep” Personalised Children’s Bedtime Book

Bedtime in our house has always been manic, as you would expect in the days we had a newborn, a one year old, a two year old and a ten year old. By the time I’d bathed each of them, read them a story, and finally got them settled, I’d be ready for bed myself! Now with the children that little bit older I’d love to sit here and tell you that we have got it covered, that the kids go to bed without a word of complaint and fall asleep as soon as their heads hit the pillow – but I’d be lying!

As a result I am always searching for ideas to make our bedtime routine a little easier and when I was introduced to the “Goes to Sleep” bedtime book for children, I was really interested to learn more.

‘Goes to Sleep’ is a personalised children’s bedtime book featuring your child throughout. You can select a girl or boy, their hair colour, skin tone and preview each spread.

Using proven methods from world renown hospitals, The Children’s Sleep Charity and leading children’s sleep specialists, to help you develop a highly effective Bedtime Routine, the book is recommended for children between the ages of 6 months to 5 years, although older children would still enjoy it I’m sure.

I love anything personalised, and find that my children relate far better to stories they can actually imagine themselves being a part of. With the ‘Goes to sleep’ book tried and tested, I am hopeful that this will make a real difference and help parents whose children aren’t quite as keen to sleep!

We are offering one lucky winner the chance to win their own personalised ‘Goes to sleep’ book, RRP £16.99 simply by entering via the link below. The winner will be notified via email at close of giveaway on 3rd Feb. Good luck!

    My youngest Granddaughter is only 18 days old so isn’t really focusing in on anything yet and my 4 year old has to be her Disney princess castle.

    Bed times in our household start of quite nicely, bath, book and then bed…….and then that’s when the nightmare begins!!! Both my children (I swear) don’t need as much sleep as what I do, up and down the stairs all night with new reasons to talk to me etc lol. It can only get better!

    It can be quite stressful when they don’t want to go to bed, although when they are there they fall asleep quite quickly when having a story.

    Bed time has always been calm and easy with my children. I have always stuck to a routine which works for us. They both love me to read them a bedtime story then sing a couple of gentle nursery rhymes before saying night night.

    She is only 2 so we have some good and some horrendous bedtimes, if she is over tired they tend to be worse

  23. Jo Carroll

    I actually find having to read a nice story to my little man quite therapeutic for myself…but I have to be careful as it often sends me off to sleep too and I still have things to do like ironing, washing, cleaning etc 😉

  24. Angela treadway

    fairly easy they have milk and cookies before they go to bed so they know after that its time to settle down x

  26. Sophie Foulds

    Easy at the minute as we only have 1 child who is 18 months. Routine is the same everynight so she knows what to expect! That’s the key!

    Mostly good, my 3 year old is the most difficult to get to bed, until recently she used to sleep in our bed every night, im just glad to have her in her own room even if it takes a while to get her to sleep

  29. Angie McDonald
    January 8, 2019 / 11:04 pm

    I find it fine, we have a proper routine and try to stick to it every day that we can. She loves to be read a story every night and it’s a time I treasure

    Depends on the kids mood as to how long it takes them to go to sleep.

    January 10, 2019 / 12:48 pm

    Really easy usually – my kids love sleep and slept over 12 hrs a night over the Christmas holidays (they’re 7 & 3!). But it will come back to bite me when they’re teenagers!

  35. Geri Gregg

    My granddaughter loves a story at bedtime and a cuddle

  43. January 14, 2019 / 9:31 am

    Hit and miss, sometimes they go really easily, other times they can mess about for up to 2 hours, faffing about, requesting water and cuddles.

    My four granddaughters are pretty good at bedtime. Sometimes I read a meditation to the second eldest which is very effective.

  50. Laura Corrall

    With two I find it really hard, I try to wind down one and the other is going loopy. Trying to get into a routine of them both winding down together.

    Bedtime is OK. Not great. My youngest still relies on his bottle to fall asleep. Keeping them asleep and out of our bed is the biggest problem!

    perfect for my grand nephew who loves a bed time story

  58. Claire Woods
    February 2, 2019 / 10:51 am

    Okay if they go to sleep quickly. But sometimes he fights it and it takes ages. Then I feel very fustrated.

    My children are too old for stories and snuggles at bedtime now. But I love it when i have my Godson overnight, he has a nice warm bubble bath, 1 or 5 stories and then goes down. I miss mine being that small

    My youngest daughter lived with me from nearly 3 yrs old (she is adopted). The majority of the time I had to read a lot of books to her and wait until she dropped fast asleep. It was very rare she would settle on her own and would constantly get out of bed and creep down the stairs. In a few months I will start having my granddaughter to sleep. We are just getting her into books
