Daddy Pig shares his Bath, Book, Bed tips: 'The trick is not to fall asleep first!'

Published on: 09 April 2018 Author: Daddy Pig

We're so pleased to have Daddy Pig on board as our Bath, Book, Bed ambassador - after all, he's a bit of an expert when it comes to parenting.

Daddy Pig

Bath, Book, Bed is all about establishing a simple night-time routine to help your little ones (and you!) get a good night's sleep - and Daddy Pig knows all about that thanks to his little piggies Peppa and George.

He very kindly agreed to answer some of our burning questions about how bedtime works in the Pig household, so read on for all of his tips:

Getting children to bed at night can be a bit of a battle! How do you settle your excitable little piggies in the evening?

I like getting Peppa and George settled by reading them their favourite books. The trick is to not fall asleep before them!

What's your favourite bedtime book for Peppa and George?

I find my favourite book, The Wonders of Concrete, tends to get the little piggies to sleep.

Lots of parents say they're not sure how best to make stories come alive. What are your top tips?

I find that practice makes perfect... It took me years for me to learn how to wiggle my ears. The more you keep reading and snorting, the better you will get!

Do you ever sing Peppa and George a song before bed? If so, what is their favourite?

I save all my singing for in the shower... Although a soothing lullaby can be a good way to help your little ones get to sleep!

Do Peppa and George ever get afraid of the dark? If so, what do you do to help?

Even I can be afraid of the dark sometimes! I like to read Peppa and George a happy story until they are sound asleep!

And do Peppa and George have a favourite bedtime drink or snack?

I find it's best not to have anything sweet as it can keep the little piggies up all night! A nice glass milk is yummy. I always say to my little piggies - the sooner you fall asleep, the sooner you will be able to have breakfast in the morning!
