  • I've always followed her cues & let my girl tell me when she's tired, and she's always been consistent. I thought by now I'd give her a set bedtime (She's 2 1/2) but she always tells me she'd like to go to bed and I look and it's between 7:30 and 8:30. On rare occasions she's up later than that, I cap it at 9pm and tell her "OK, bedtime..." and she's fine with that. So far so good... let's hope it stays this way!
