  • my son is 3. if he doesn't get a nap, he goes to bed at 7:30 and wakes about 6:30 ( waking 2to 3 to 4 times a night on average grrr)
    if he does nap you are lucky if he falls asleep by 11... ugh... and wakes at 7- ( also waking at night )

  • DS4 goes to bed about 8-8:30, DD6 goes to bed at about 9. They both wake around 8:30. I will have to bump their bedtimes up soon since DD will be going to 1st grade in the fall and will need to get up earlier. Now she is in half day kindergarten, afternoon. I'm going to miss my lazy mornings!

  • I put my 3 year old twins to bed between 8:30 and 9. They usually wake up around 7, so they are sleeping about 10 hours most nights. They also nap for 1.5 to 2 hours during the day.

  • Depends on day and how the day went. Weedays usually he is in bed by 7:30 p.m. asleep by 8. Weekends change that by a half hour. Also if we're gone somewhere it changes a bit. Usually we're up by 7 everyday.
