What time do your kids go to bed?

Posted by   + Show Post
My daughter is just about 10 months. She still cosleeps, once in awhile we will put her in her crib to start but she usually ends up back in our bed by about 1 or 2 am. She doesn't fall asleep until about 10pm, which I suppose is probably our fault because of the cosleeping. I've read most babies by 10 months go to bed by 7 or 8 and sleep all the way through the night. Not our baby, she has a bottle at about 9:30, sleeps til 1:30, has another bottle, back to sleep til 4:30 - another bottle then maybe 2-3 hours more sleep and up by 7:30am. I don't know how to get her to sleep through the night. We do some finger foods for lunch and dinner but she mainly just gets bottles. My husband thinks she need 8oz bottles but she's always full after 5-6oz. I just want her to sleep through the night. I feel like her schedule is off from everyone else's I've seen online, like she doesn't nap until 11am and then her second nap isn't until 3:30 or 4pm. I try to get her down earlier but she doesn't want to. Did you have routines or schedules for your babies? What were they like?

My son was still waking up to nurse several times until he was almost 1. It was exhausting.

My 6 and 12 year old go to bed at 8 (but usually stay up chatting to each other until 10) and my 2 year old is laid down at 8 but gets up multiple times until 9. He is my pain in the ass kid.  

I have to be up for work at 4am and would love to go to bed before 8.

My youngest goes to bed at 7 and sleeps until 11 or so the next morning. She is two.

The older two go to bed at 7, read until 7:30 and get up around 8 unless they have to get up for school. They are 6 and 8.

I bed share with my 10-month old. She has her bottle at 7, usually asleep by 7:20. She will be up for a bottle sometimes at midnight and 5, sometimes just once around like 3. Then up for the day around 6 or 7. She naps once during the day from about 1 to 3. She used to sleep through the night but I've heard that around 9 months it gets wonky again.

 When DD was that age her routine was...bath starting at 7, bottle at 7:30 and bed at 8pm. She would sleep until 8am unless teething or growth spurt.
