My son is 2 1/2 and our bedtime routine is bath, brush teeth, say goodnight and kiss his father and our dog lol 2-3 bedtime stories then lights out. Just curious what everyone else's routines are like.

Say night to daddy (she procrastinates here)
Brush teeth hair get into jammies
In bed story time kiss from mom (more procrastinating with extra love on mom)
Then lights out she usually has a book to herself falls asleep with it
She's also 2 1/2

We get ready 45 minutes before bedtime. Once my 3 year old is ready (brush/floss teeth, potty, pjs....we do showers in the morning), he gets the iPad until 8 pm. I then finish getting his 1 year old brother ready & clean up a little. Up to bed at 8, read 3 books, then lights out.

I lay with both kids until they fall asleep. We all lay on my bed, baby nurses, and when everyone is asleep I move the baby to his crib and DH moves my 3 year old to his bed. They are both usually back in our bed by midnight

I lay with my son some nights too and he wakes up and comes in our bed quite a bit. It's just been recently that he started staying in his bed more and more.

We do baths every other night, but otherwise it's a little bit of milk, brush teeth, books if we have time, good nights and then bed.  He'll be 3 in October.

1 mom liked this

usually we change diaper, put on pjs then sit on the couch with daddy for a few while he drinks his milk.. then brush teeth and get into bed.

he hates bedtime so the process is usually really drawn out or he screams his little head off. lol
