How to Get Your Doll Ready for Bed

Getting a doll ready for bed isn't very different from getting yourself to bed. Your doll can be bathed, fed and clothed in pajamas before bed, as well as having a bedtime story.


  1. 1
    Get your doll in pajamas, if you have some for the doll.
  2. 2
    Feed it a healthy dinner. After dinner, brush its teeth.
  3. 3
    Give the doll a pretend bath.
  4. 4
    Encourage the doll to use the toilet after a drink. Take the doll to the bathroom or wherever the potty is and gently sit it down.
  5. 5
    Read the doll a bedtime story. Read any book you like, as long as it's not too scary. If it is a long book, read one chapter every day.
  6. 6
    Climb into bed and snuggle down to sleep. When you get in to bed and you can't sleep or your doll can't sleep, get up and switch a lamp or a light on and talk till you get a bit sleepy.
    • If your doll is too excited to go to sleep, rock it in your arms. Or if it whimpers, ask if it needs to go to the bathroom or it needs a drink.
    • If you need a bathroom or need a drink, leave your doll tucked up in bed.
  7. 7
    Give the doll its own sleeping space. If you are scared you are going to squash your doll, put it in a mini sleeping bag on the floor or make a mini bed on the floor for it. Or, if you have a chair that transforms into a bed, that will be ideal.
