When Jasper was just a week old, I was told by a midwife that babies love routines, particularly when going to bed. So I started to read him â€œDizzy Daysâ€ by Dr Seuss every time I put him to bed. As crazy as this sounds I read this same book to him 4 times a day and every time he gets a giggle out of it. Amazing! I decided to read to him in front of the mirror so that he can see my facial expressions while sitting on my lap; this along with tapping on the pages of the book really got him interested & focused on each page.
Â We tested the theory of not reading him his favouite book before bed and you wouldnâ€™t believe it but he didnâ€™t settle to sleep straight away.Â Thank you Dr Seuss!
