if so, how old are they? what time? do you have a certain routine?

  • My kids are soon to be 5 (in October), 3 and 5 months old and they all go to bed at 8pm. We eat dinner around 6pm, baths around 7pm and then relax for a few minutes before bed. :)

  • My children are 6 and 7. They have to be in bed at 8 pm ready to go to sleep on school nights. Onweekends they have to be in bed around 9-9:30 but are allowed to watch tv for an hour or so. TV is only allowed on in the bedrooms during the weekends/holidays and special circumstances like "sick in bed" days.

  • 9-9:30.
    Dh and I grab a kid, change their diapers, change them into their PJ's, give them their bottle/Sippy and tuck them into bed. Then before we turn out the light we say "Goodnight, Mommy and Daddy love you!"

    My son will be two in a couple of weeks. My daughter is almost 11months.

  • my youngest I put to bed at 830 and my oldest watched tv in her room until she fell asleep ages 2.5 and 5 years. My oldest sometimes wouldn't fall asleep until 10 or 11 sometimes later. Now that my 5 year old is in school what we do is. Dinner is at 5:30 bath at 7, snack after getting dressed and hair brushed, then teeth brushed, then story time. Then bedtime at 8. I lay them both down (own rooms) then my oldest can watch tv until 830 then the tv goes off then she has to go to bed. Although she got grounded from the tv today for a week. She was being bad at the hospital when I Was visiting my dad and she kept laughing at me cause she thought I Was joking.

    6-18 month bed 5:00-5:30 pm woke up @ 6-6:30 am
    18 months-3 years 5:30-6:30 pm woke up @ 6:00-6:30 am

    7-9 years old 9:00 pm wake up @ 7:00-7:30 am (This is because we homeschool now; If they were still going to school they would be in bed by 8:00 pm)

    Both of my kids starting @ 6 months slept through the night!
