Makaton Monday ~ Bed

Bruiser loves his bed. He loves his bedtime routine. Its one of the routines that has always needed to remain unchanged and has, since I cant even remember! If we change it or leave something out, it results in him becoming quite unsettled and leaves him struggling to sleep.

The minute he finishes his milk he signs ‘bed’ and ‘brushing teeth’ and runs to the upstairs. He has a certain place where he puts Igglepiggle in the bathroom while he brushes his teeth. He has to have his mobile playing when you leave him to go to sleep. Igglepiggle has to be tucked underneath him while he sleeps. If we do miss something he will continue to cry or moan until its rectified. Its usually a process of elimination… tonight, he wanted his new Mickey Mouse blanket on top of his other blankets.

Its a lot of little things but, all together they make Bruiser feel happy and settled.
