Bedtime routine for long distance

Recommended Posts

Me and my little are long distance and she has a really hard time getting to sleep at night. I think setting up a routine for her. The problem is I'm a very busy student and she works 2-11. How can I set up a routine that can work with both our schedules.

There are apps you can use to set up daily schedules. There is one called famcal where you can set up to do lists and planners etc. Its free and its shared. But there are others too. Just search your app store. With the to do list, she can check them off as she does them, and you can see that.

Bedtime routine examples...

 

Brush teeth

Turn off phone/xbox etc

Close curtains

Brush hair

Send goodnight text

Put pjs on

Turn off light

 

Nothing complicated

Just basic checklists can work well.

My daddy and i are long distance but our. Scheduals match pretty well so i will call him on Skype at about 10pm my time and we will talk for a little bit before he tells me to get undressed and get my paci and i ask him to pick my stuffies before i get a story. If you are able to send voice messages those might help and you can tell your little what to do or record story's on them

My little and i always facetime/skype before bed time, i make sure she brushes her teeth, put her retainer and once we finish chatting, she sends me a selfie before bedtime.

You could make her take photos of each step having been done to prove she's done her bedtime routine!If you video call before bed, you could watch her do it too!

 

Get her to shower, wash her face, brush her teeth and change into pyjamas etc. Maybe get her favourite stuffie and do something you know she needs to relax (so she can sleep better!) or get her to drink a glass of warm milk and perhaps talk her into having a peaceful sleep (you could just say calming things and let her know you love her over and over until she's able to calm down and sleep properly!)

 

Shared apps work too (the ones for families with kids and she can tick each one off for points each night) or you could send her a quick message every night before you say goodnight to make sure she's done her tasks :)
