  • Both kids is 8:30 just for ease really. My daughter is 8 1/2 months, only sleeps ten hours at night, but takes good naps during the day. My SS is 7 and he gets 10 hours a night as well, but no naps. My SS takes a shower, puts on lotion and pjs, takes his allergy medicine and then brushes his teeth. My daughter gets baby food, lotion, clean diaper, pjs, then a bottle. We brush her gums and her two little teethers and then either me or DH reads to them together and off they go to bed.

  • At 7 we start baths. Then brush teeth, get out clothes for tomorrow, double check book bags and get in bed. I read to the 5 and 7 year olds for about 20 - 30 minutes while the 8 year old reads her own book. Then lights out. They are usually in bed about 8:30. They don't actually fall asleep though until about 9:30 or so.

  • 9pm. I have 2 boys 11 & 8 and they are in bed at 9pm. I let them talk or listen to music to 9:30, but they are usually asleep before that.

  • With my older two, it was just me and them so I had a set bedtime and routine from the time they were 1 yr. Made things very easy and I actually had time for myself. The younger two ended up in our bed because I work nights and my husband wined that they were keeping him up at night. The first one left our bed when she started Kindergarden and has a set routine for school days and we slack on weekends. The youngest still sleeps with us and has no routine at all yet, we'll see when she starts Kindergarden next year.

  • Both girls go to bed at 730 pm every night...no exceptions!!! I believe routine is best in our family so no one is GRUMPY in the morning. My oldest is 5 and the other is 2. It works out great for us...plus my 2 year old takes a nap everyday...also...no exceptions!!
