Sleep is one of the most important factors in releasing growth hormones, most especially for very young babies.While your baby sleeps, her little body produces 3x more growth hormones.
The good news is there is a way to promote better sleep for your baby: through a consistent nightly bedtime routine.

Them three or four years ago
My kids love music and books. I realized that reading to them and let them hear classical music at an early age has contributed to their love for music and books. When they were babies, we set a serene atmosphere by playing nursery songs in a low volume or set the radio on a Christian radio station that plays classical music. The soft music fills the room and easily sends the cuties to dreamland. Sometimes we let the music play while I or Daddy reads story to them. Our selection for reading materials includes the well-loved nursery stories and Bible stories to enrich their young minds. We also let them hear an audio book once in a while.
Aside from reading to my kids as a form of mental stimulation, I also massage their little bodies with a small amount of baby powder or baby oil to help them relax until they fall asleep. I think my kids and I developed a strong bond through this touch therapy over time. They grew up to be quiet and confident kids.
The habit of listening to music and reading before going to sleep were still with them now that they are older. They still listen to music (of their choice) and read their latest book before turning off the light at night. Daddy and I are proud that our night routine for the kids then paved the way to an enriching habit that my kids still practice up to this time. Music and books are an important part of their growing up years.
