Whats your bed time routine? we just started having one so I would like to see what others do

As of now we eat dinner, usually around 7p
at 8pm it's bath time
brush teeth and then story
right after it's time to start bedtime

By then it's 9 pm, but it's taken me a while the last couple nights to get him to go to sleep. We are transitioning from co-sleeping to him sleeping in his tot bed. He wakes up now, once in the middle of the night, but I just put him in bed with us.

  • When my granddaughter spends the night, we eat dinner between 5:30 and 6:00pm. Then she helps me clear the table and load the dishwasher. She can put the silverware in the bin. I do the sharp knives, of course. After the kitchen is done, we might color together, or do a puzzle or play a game. At 7pm she takes a bath. She'll play for fifteen to twenty minutes. Then I help her towel-dry, get in pajamas, brush teeth, brush hair, etc. She says good-night to Grandpa. Finally, around 7:30 or so, I tuck her in bed and read her two stories. Two has always been the rule. Never one, never three, so she doesn't have to beg for "just one more!" I control the time, by removing longer stories from the choices available, if I feel it's getting late. After the stories, and talking about them for a bit, she says her prayers. Then I give her a kiss and make sure she has her blankie. She is usually asleep within minutes.
