Debriefing the day to help sleep

Eli’s mum: Last thing every night we ask, ‘What has Eli done today?’

We talk through his day in chronological order, and lead up to, ‘Then we got into bed and read stories, so now Eli is very tired. Now we’re going to say goodnight to Dad (pause for a kiss) and now we’re going to have some milk and cuddles’.

This works for us as a debrief of the events of the day, and to soothe him into sleep.
