Getting your baby to bed is never straightforward. But, if you’re trying to squeeze in some extra “you time” by getting your little one to bed earlier, you’re in luck.

In The Know’s parenting gurus, Andrea and Jose, have got three products that might make bedtime less daunting.

When your baby can’t fall asleep, Jose suggested trying the Hatch Baby Sound Machine.

“It’s not only a white sound machine but it’s also an audio monitor, a sleep trainer and a nightlight,” Jose said.

The sound machine is app-controlled. Parents can change the color of the nightlight, play comforting noises and even communicate through the machine from the app.

“It has an audio monitor. I don’t have to keep going up-and-down, up-and-down,” Jose said of traveling to and from his kid’s room. “I could sing to my babies or I could talk to them, soothe them to sleep so it’s perfect.”

If your little one could use some extra comfort, try Andrea’s favorite Burt’s Bees Onesie Pajamas.

“One thing I love about them is they’re made of 100 percent organic cotton,” Andrea said. “That means not only are they durable but it’s a breathable material that has a nice cozy feel and is snug for your little one.”

The pajamas have elastic at the ankles to hold them in place and non-slip feet.

“It’s perfect for that cruising stage or when they’re learning to walk, it gives them a little extra stability,” Andrea said.

Finally, this 3-in-1 Convertible Crib will secure future bedtimes for years.

“I love that as your baby grows you start in the crib and then it converts to a toddler bed and then from there it converts to a classic daybed,” Andrea explained. “So you’re basically investing in one product that is obviously going to be lasting you a really long time”

The crib is made with nontoxic paint and New Zealand pinewood, one of the most renewable wood sources on the market.
