Well, Brady usually falls asleep on the couch with us at night and then we put him in his bed.

I have a 2 year old. I usually carry him to bed. I lay him down and then tuck him in with his favorite stuffed animals and his favorite blanket. We give hugs and kisses, tell him how much we love him and that it's bedtime. On the way out we turn on his night light and make sure his doorknob lock is on his door so he doesn't try to get out at night and get into stuff or hurt himself. We shut the door and walk out. We will hear him in there singing or making noises to his stuffed animals but he doesn't get up much or get out of bed. Usually is asleep within 15 minutes.

My 10 month old loves to cuddle. I just sit and rock him and sing you are my sunshine and within minutes hes fast asleep.

My sons routine is constant, even on the weekends. He goes to bed at 9 and I sing his good night song. He always has his stuffies also.

We do scripture and prayers, then give everyone kisses, then we find her squishies and softies, then she gets in bed I turn on her light thing (it's a butterfly with star and moon), I then sing her a song, turn the light down and she's usually asleep within 5 minutes!

If we do things out of order it takes hours to get her down!!

I have to feed Jacob one last bottle, then hold him until he's out. Then I carry him into the bedroom and lay him in his crib. 95% of the time he stays asleep all night. Once in a while when he wakes I just put him in bed with me, because I'm too exhausted to try and get him back to sleep any other way.

I had to ask because my son needs someone to be with him at night..we play baby music for my 5 year old..my DH snapped and spanked him because my son didnt fall asleep since it takes him a whole hour sometimes longer. I was very upset!!!!! I lay with him, hug him, kiss him, sing to him, etc...but he gets distracted of course and ends up playing instead. I wish my husband didnt lose it. He said it's because he has school this next morning and he wants him to sleep already. I need to get my DS on a same time sleeping schedule...thats my fault though if he's up so late....SMH!!! =(
