My husband and I both work shift work and we have a 3 month old. I understand the need for a good bedtime (around 8-9pm) but my husband thinks that we need to try to get her to fit around our schedule a little bit more. He is wanting to push her bedtime back further (later in the evening). I am just afraid of having a child that becomes very hard to be put to bed later. We are constantly agruing about it b/c I dont like the thought of her going to bed late (even though I get home after 11pm). I just dont think that 10pm or later is a good bedtime for her. I need help from other shift work parents that have been through this. I know that her getting between 16-18 hours a day is what is needed but I just dont see that sleeping 10pm to 10am is a good sleeping habit for a baby. I just dont know what to do since we are first time parents!! Thanks for any help.
