my daughter really dont have a bed time. but usually as soon as it hits 9pm shes out. the latest she ever stayed up was 11 but whatever time i put her to bed she sleeps straight for 12 hrs. so the later the better i gues. but 9 is when she gets cranky so i would say that would be her bed time.

my baby doesn't really have a set schedule. i put her to bed when she is tired but it's always between 8 and 10:30, no later than 10:30. she usually sleeps anywhere from 11-14 hours.

We start our bedtime routine at 6pm, so our lil boy is usually asleep by 6.30/7pm & wakes anywhere from 6-7am.

My son goes to sleep around 7:30am and wakes around 5am...That's been his pattern since he began sleeping thru the night around 3.5m.

My daughter has a set routine, she gets her last bottle at 9pm and goes to bed around 9.30pm every night without fail... She gets up around 7.30 - 8.00 every morning too, so she is very predictable!!! She has been like this almost since birth, she isnt that hard to put to sleep..... I think myself lucky she is so easy!!!

to the mom who wanted tips on getting her bubba to sleep earlier: what worked for me was establishing a routing. If he wakes from his nap at 4.30pm, he'd have dinner at 5pm, play until 5.40pm, watch Waybuloo on sky plus until 6pm, then upstairs for bath, a bit more playtime then we'd put the lamps on and keep it lowkey while giving him his final bottle at about 6.30pmish. By doing this every day (although I bathe him every other day and massage on the other days) he quickly got used to the routine.



The other thing is to make sure they get all their food in during the daytime. My LO has 20oz of milk plus breakfast, lunch and dinner. I just make sure that he gets it all between 7am and 7pm and he happily sleeps until 7am in the morning. It does take time but persevere with a routine that works for you for at least a fortnight and you will begin to see change. Also, drop any night feeds. If my son wakes in the night, I leave hime be and he soon drifts back off to sleep. If takes time and you may be awake listening to them cry/moan but give it a try, it should begin to pay off after a week. And if they are getting all their milk during the day but still wake at night for a feed, swap the milk for water. Then gradually stop getting them up full stop. They'll soon get used to it. Good luck.

Mine is 7 months old and he goes to bed between 6.30pm and 7.30pm. He wakes up between 6am and 7am. He naps 2 hours after waking in the morning for 1.5 hours, he then takes 45 mins nap after lunch about noon, then he'll have another 1.5 hours at 3-3.30pm.

mine is in bed at 7.30 and usually wakes about 8.30-9.00, this gives me time with my partner and time to wind down befor i go to bed myself, i think its a very practical time not too early and not too late

My twin girls are 7 months old and they refuse to go to bed at 7, 8 or even 9pm. I'm lucky to get them down by 11. I work full time so im up by 5am and the sec. they hear me, they are up to. I've tried the "schedule thing", the "letting them cry" thing, the "warm bath followed with a warm bottle" thing .... yeah... nothing works for me. And when they do sleep, i dont run to their every sound.... for the fear of waking them up fully. So..... Kudos to all you moms who have babies that sleep thru the night..... and for us moms who have babies that just absolutely refuse to sleep.... well...... best of luck to you. I keep holding onto the saying " one day they will outgrow this" with very high hopes that it's true. May god bless all of us.

My daughter now 7 months goes to sleep around 9-9:30. Slowly I have been moving up her last feeding time and slowly she goes to sleep earlier as well.



Also I must add that just two weeks ago me and her daddy decided its time for her to learn to go to sleep on her own...that means not picking up if you have been washed changed and fed..



The first few nights were hell as she cried half and hr straight...felt like world's worst mommy...but we noticed huge difference in few days...now not even a minute goes by and she is fast asleep...and she is sleeping earlier and earlier now that she has learned to self- soothe



So I agree, I think in a lot of cases, it is the parents that prevent their babies from developing good sleeping behavior and patterns by over coddling them ...

My daughter religiously goes to bed at 8pm. No matter what we are doing or where we are at, she is asleep at 8pm. That has pretty much been the norm since birth.

[deleted account]

At about 7 PM every night, but this is pretty new. Up until 7 months, she was going to bed at 8 PM.

I see that some of you are still having your baby wake during the night. Xavier use to wake at either 2am or 3am every night like clockwork. You just need to try and push them through. Dont get them up, give them a dummy (pacifier) and pat them back to sleep. Or let them make noise and they will go back to sleep themselves. If you keep getting them up and talking to them or giving them a bottle or the boob they will continue to wake at this time every night and will expect what they got the night before. Just need to push them through the night (if possible). Unless of course your baby is hysterical, you will then pick them up.

My son goes to bed between 7 and 8pm. Lately closer to 7. He sleeps until 5am or 6am in the morning. Although we can give him a bottle and he goes back to sleep. We have just came back from a holiday and he has been sleeping lots as he is so tired. 12 - 13 hours a night. It is very normal for your baby to go to bed that early.
