  • I have one daughter she is three. She goes to bed at around nine pm (we are night owls in this family) & usually I read to her & tuck her in however, there are many times she just walks to my bed without me noticing usually I am cleaning or something when this happens & just falls asleep haha

  • my kids didn't really have a bedtime until the past auguest. My oldest is nearly 6 and youngest is 3 and they now have a bedtime at 830 since my oldest is in school now. Well actually they go to there room at 8 to watch tv and then I go up at 830 and tuck them in and turn off the tv and light. On the weekends and none school days my kids go to bed usually when we do unless they start getting on my nervous lol then they will go to bed earlier. I read to them sometimes.

  • I have two kids and they have the same bed-time and routine.
    My DS is 4 and DD is 1 1/2.

    At 6:30pm we tidy up the playroom, go upstairs and brush teeth. Then they get to decide if they're having a bath or a shower and have which ever one they decide.
    When they're all clean and after a little play time, they're out, dried off and through to DS's bedroom to get into pj's and we all get into DS's bed for stories, cuddles and to talk about the good parts about our day and pick our favorite part.
    Then DD and I give DS hugs and kisses, I tuck him in and turn on his music and say good night.

    Then DD and I go to her room, she gets tucked into bed, hugs and kisses and then bedtime.

    They are usually in bed with lights out by 7:30pm.
    DD is in her big girl bed as of two days ago so she takes a little longer for right now.

  • I have 5 kids so the bedtime routine is kinda chaotic at times. My older 3 who are 7,5,and 4 go to bed at 8pm. I read to them before I tuck them in. My younger 2 who are 2 and 19mths, go to bed at 630-7, I read to them also. Before all this we eat a little snack and brush our teeth....

  • My oldest daughter is 4 years old and we also have a 5 month old. We put our 4 year old to bed around 8:00/8:30 depending on if she had a nap or not. We do read books to her. She gets 1 book read at naptime and two books read at bed then we say our prayers. As for our 5 month old well she isn't on a schedule yet but she more or less has her last bottle around 7:00/8:00 and goes to bed afterwards. We do not read books to her yet but will introduce the bedtime reading in a few months when she is a bit older.
