  • I put my 17 month old to bed after a bath and i sit on a bean bag next to his bed for up to 20 mins and sometimes hes asleep by then sometimes not and in those cases he cries for about 3 mins before he falls asleep, sometimes if hes still awake he doesnt bother to even cry. All in all im very pleased with the way he goes to bed but plan to start reading to him once we have moved house this monday :)

  • We give him a bath, put on his jammies, and tuck him in with a sippy cup of water. We give him a kiss and tell him good night, then make his Baby Tad play bedtime music.

  • We take a bath after dinner, put on a fresh diaper and lotion her up. Get her pj's on her and then she watches her show. We go into her room, read a few books and I turn on her music. Then she crawls into bed, I turn off the light and we say prayers.

  • Well on the nights he gets a bath, he takes that at about 6:15p. At about 6:45p I change his diaper && put his pajamas on. At 7p we give everyone night night kisses. I take him to his room && put him in bed, give him his cup of milk, cover him up with his favorite blankie, && give him whichever baby he wants that night. I tell him night night && that I love him, turn his light off && then shut the door.

  • ask her to show me her room to put on jammys and diaper, read a book or two, then look out the window and say good night to the outside, then give kisses and then put in bed with her blankie and a book.

  • About 7:45 or 8pm, she gets a small snack or some milk and then we go in and change her diaper and put on her PJs. We might play for a few minutes or read a book. Then we go into the computer room where I start her lullabies. We go back to her room, turn out the lights and I hold her and rock her to the first song or two. She reaches for the crib, I lay her down and kiss her, she says nigh-nigh and I leave. She's usually asleep within 5-10 minutes.
