Toddler at bedtime...

When you put your toddlers to bed, do they fall asleep right away or do they talk to themselves for awhile and then go to sleep?

  • Talk, talk, talk. Sometimes it is 30-45 minutes. Occasionally she gets up in the middle of the night, talks for awhile and then goes back to sleep. However, if she's really tired...she's out like a light. =)

  • 7:30 in theory, 8pm in practice most nights. My 17 month old goes right to sleep no matter what. Even though she shares a room with my almost-3 year-old who either talks herself to sleep (on a good night) or dukes it out with mom and dad for up to an hour (recent development, long story, she used to go to bed without a fuss but would often talk/sing/play alone happily for 30-60 minutes).

  • Some nights he goes down easy other nights he spends an hour trying to kick/punch/head butt his way through the door. It depends on how tired he is.

  • sometimes she fights sometimes she doesn't. there are nights where she cries for a couple minutes, talks for a few, or just goes STRAIGHT to sleep or at the very least is quiet. she is 19 months.

  • Mine likes to get up and ask for a diaper change, a kiss, mommy to come snuggle, etc. until she finally stays in bed for sleep.
