  2. Bitta Kidda’s BittaSack and Daytime Lovies: As you dress baby for bed, don’t forget that as the weather gets colder, you’ll need a safe way to bundle baby up – we love the BittaSack from Bitta Kidda. Featuring cotton velour wearable lovies your baby can safely self-soothe at night. With its diaper cover and easy to use zipper, the BittaSack makes middle of the night changes a breeze and won’t twist and turn as baby moves, causing them to wake up. If you’re looking for a wearable lovie for daytime use, Bitta Kidda has you covered. Their Daytime Lovies clip on to baby’s clothing, are 100% cotton, come in adorable designs, and can travel with you during the holiday season

  3. Swaddle Blanket: If your baby still needs a swaddle, we love the colorful blankets from Buttermilk Babies; made of cotton and bamboo rayon, this swaddle will help your baby sleep and not overheat baby at night.

  4. DockATot: If you’re going to be traveling a lot these holidays, the DockATot is a wonderful way to keep baby’s comfy AKA “happy place” the same from house to house. The DockATot makes a wonderfully portable place for baby to rest, snuggle, and nap. It’s easily washable and can be thrown in the car without taking up any space! With the dock’s womb-like environment, your baby will feel at ease in the DockATot, no matter where he or she is resting.

  5. Lullabies: Another wonderful way to keep baby’s routine the same when traveling (or at home), is to play the same lullabies every night – the repetition of the same music pre-bed will help calm baby down and settle more easily.
    PRODUCT WIDGET – ID: 5824b5c6f3e6917b0ea35b98

  6. Baby Board Books: The same goes for reading books every night – we recommend reading the same stack of books over and over again – and luckily, BabyLit has created books which parents won’t grow tired of – you can enjoy classics such as Little Women, Treasure Island, Emma, and The Odyssey with your baby.

  7. Calming bath or baby massage: As you get baby ready for bed, try calming them down with a baby massage or warm bath – grab a hold of Oilogic’s Slumber and Sleep products which contain 100% Pure Essential Oils diluted appropriately with Jojoba Oil, Castor Oil & Coconut Oil to keep skin baby-butt soft – these oils are known for their calming capabilities.

  8. White Noise: With a houseful of guests, or as a guest in a new house, you’re going to want to help baby sleep with a soft white noise. Skip Hop’s Moonlight and Melodies Nightlight Soother is the perfect companion for the hectic holiday season because it’s soft noise will help baby drift off to sleep (and stay there), and its dim light will add a calming sensation to any room (even hotel rooms!)

  9. Sleep Book for Parents: And, if all else fails and baby can’t seem to calm down this crazy season, turn to an old favorite, Dr. Karp’s The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep: Simple Solutions for Kids from Birth to 5 Years. This book features simple tips which can help you keep baby on their sleep schedule, even with the non-stop traveling, shopping, and guests during this season.
