  • You all are going to think I'm a REALLY bad mom for this, but I let my two year old decide when she is ready for bed. We do bath time at 7:30, get her ready for bed (lotion, jammies, braid her hair, brush her teeth, etc.) and then read with her for a while. If she is ready to go to sleep (8-8:30) then great! If not, I let her get up with me and snuggle on the couch (if I still want to be awake) or in my bed. When she is ready she tells me night night, gets her blanket and gets in bed. After bath it is always quiet time, though, no toys, no rough housing, etc.

    At nine months, she was ALWAYS going to sleep at 8, because the kid was worn out and couldn't keep her eyes open! :-)

  • My 2 month old goes down for the night between 8:30 and 10. He's been slepping 7 hours, woo hoo. By the time he's 9 months I hope to have hiom on an 8pm schedule.

  • When my daughter was 9month old i put her to bed at 7pm and she slept for 11-12hrs. She's now 21month old and she's in bed at 8p and still sleep the same amount of hrs.

  • I am putting my 1 week old to bed around 8 (when she finishes nursing - of course, she's still waking up twice/night to nurse). When my older kids were 9 months they went to bed at 7 PM and slept until 7 AM.
