  • Mine went to bed by 7pm at that age. She took 1 nap - about 1.5 hours) and was up by 7am no matter what we did during the day or how early/late she went to bed.

    If the baby can sleep until 3pm the next afternoon and it works for the family, it's not too bad - except for the TV part. If the child can't get enough sleep though, then it is harming the child's ability to learn and grow.

  • he has had his nights where he has faught me pretty late but not that late. Usually he is in bed by 9PM. At 8:30 he helps me put away his toys and it takes him till about 9:00pm to completely wind down and get droopy eyed and he out by 9:30 at the latest. He wouldnt even make it 3am if he tried lol

  • I put my son to bed at 7:15 - he's 19 months old and I've done this since he stopped taking 1 nap at 13 months -he wakes up 5;45 like clockwork - i've tried later bedtimes and earlier and this is the times where he gets the most sleep !

  • Mine goes to bed between 8 and 9 and will sleep at late as noon depending on whether it is a growth spurt or not. Usually up between 10 and 1030.
