  • The baby goes to bed every night, without fail at 8:00.

    The older ones go to bed around 9 in the summer. 8 or 8:30 during school....

  • They go to bed between 8 and 8:30. But there have been days where things were crazy and we had to make late night trips and had LO's with us. I always felt like people were thinking we were terrible parents! lol.

  • We start the bedtime routine at 7:30 and the boy is down by 8pm. Once in a while he'll stay awake later but he stays in bed unless he's actually sick. Tonight he was up and down until about 8:45 because my hubby is out of town and the little guy always has a hard time settling down without a goodnight snuggle from daddy.

  • My son will be 2 on the 22nd and lights out has always been 10pm. I am just now begining(sp?) to move up his bed time slowly since transitioning to a regular bed. I don't see the problem, it fits my sleep schedule alot better that way. But I am slowly moving up his bed time now, so he will be able to be up and his usual jovial self when he begins pre-school.

  • Usually take him to bed around 8:30 and I'll read him a couple of stories and rock him, so usually by 9 he's settled down. I let him stay up late on the weekends sometimes, like tonight, partially so I can sleep in a little late, LOL. Late for me is 8am tho, so it's not too late.
