What time is your toddlers bedtime?

I have a 19 month old who goes to bed around 10 every night, but my mother in law says she needs to be in bed much earlier. What time do you guys put your toddler in bed?

  • my kids are 8, 4, 2.... the 4 & 2 year olds go to bed at 7. my 8 year old goes at 8.

    they also get up quite early. 5:30-6ish. they take a good afternoon nap, and it leaves me with time to get things done without them... i would rather they are up early, and to bed early, so my lovely and i can have some alone time!

  • 8pm every night. normally no exceptions, but sometimes i go out to friends houses like for 4th of July or something, so i might let him stay up about an hour later. majority of the time though, he goes to sleep there at 8 and we take him home when we go home, and he goes straight to bed.

  • My kids are 3, 2, and almost 1. They all go to bed at 7 and sleep until 6, 7, or 8 in the morning!

  • He goes to bed on average at 9, but has stayed awake many times until 10. Sometimes goes to bed at 8. We just put him to bed when he's tired, which is usually around 9. He has 1 nap during the day for an hour around 11-12. If he takes 2 naps during the day he usually stays up later.

  • Mine is almost 13 months old, and he's been going to bed at 8pm for at least the last 6 months.... He usually wakes up at 6am, and I'd REALLY like another 30 minutes or so, but ehhh, at least he always sleeps through the night, heh.

  • I have found that 7:30pm works good for mewith one afternoon nap...but there are no rules. you need to do what works for you and your child. just keep it consistent.

  • obbydobbie, wow 530 in the morning?? i'd go crazy! lol. thankfully my kids go to bed at 8 and wake up at 8. if they wake up earlier (they never wake up before 7) my rule is they have to stay in their room until 8 anyway. then they take a nap from 1230-3 or 4.
