Ever since DD was 8 months old she started sleeping through the night every night...around 11 months old she got into a sleep schedule of going to bed at 7pm and waking up at 7-8am...Well She is now 26 months old and still goes to bed at 7pm for it..so I get weird remarks from friends and they criticize me about it and act like im a bad mom because I try to keep her on her schedule and say things like "well if she didnt go to bed so early"...But I have tried numerous times to move her bedtime to even an hour later and she cant ever make it..She will cry and get upset and try to climb upstairs and says "night, night" because shes tired and wants to go to bed..and if were at someones house or something she will cry "bye bye" because she wants to go home and go to sleep. I see nothing wrong with keeping her on a schedule, she obviously enjoys the predictability and I don't feel I should take that away from her…These people leave their kids up till midnight so they can socialize and they all just look so exhausted..Ive tried to let DD stay and play with the kids but she cries to leave because she's tired. So am I really a bad mother for her bed time being at 7pm? Is it really that early? If so how do I change it if she wont respond to the change?Answer Question

Don't change the schedule to meet with theirs needs because of socializing. The children will have problems later on when they begin school. Do what's best for your daughter and don't pay attention to others.
