Have you tried letting her cry it out? We did that with our son and it worked. Don't get me wrong, we didn't let him cry forever and it wasn't easy, but he got the picture after a couple of nights. Now he sleeps through the night.

Late! He sleeps off and on through the night he doesn't like to go to bed until my husband gets home and that's hard because his daddy works nights. I think it is partly my fault too I usually stay up until my husband comes home and we all pile into bed with daddy when he gets off in the morning.

Hi there... Jayde sleeps 7-9 hours a night and has done since she was about 7 weeks... She's now 20 weeks... I usually put her to bed anywhere between 10 and 12. Any earlier and she'll sleep her 7-9 hrs and then be awake at 4 or something and wont go back to sleep, and I'm usually awake that late anyway. =)

My son (18weeks) starts the night at 7pm (bottle at 6pm). Then at 10pm I go upstairs to give him his last bottle. He sleeps until 7 in the morning when I go to work. In the weekend, he sleeps until he awakes. That can be 7am or 9.30am.

7:30 pm is bedtime and she tends to sleep until 7- 9 am in the morning. We are very lucky!

Desmond was going to bed between 9:30 and 10, but in the past couple of weeks has been moving it earlier by bits and is now going to bed around 8:15/8:30 and sleeping till we wake him at 5:15 or on his own till 6/6:30.

I got lucky and my daughter goes to bed very easily :) I start with her bath around 6 and she plays in there for 15-20 min, then we do a bottle/book and then I rock her for 1 song on her lullaby CD and then kiss her and put her in bed awake. She goes down quietly and sleeps anywhere from 11-13 hrs.

I didn't always have it this easy, for the first 2 1/2-3 mths she would scream almost non stop from 10pm-4am every night!! I tried everything and nothing worked, then all of a sudden she started sleeping a little more each night and then becoming very easy to put down. Now nap times are something totally different, we can't seem to get them on any schedule.

Quoting Sarah:

Anytime she finally feels like it! Some times as early as ten and sometimes as late as twelve thirty to one. She doesn't like going to bed for the night until my husband gets home, and sometimes that can be pretty late. How late does your little one get into bed?

i have a 4 month old. And he goes to bed at 8:30 every night. And he doesn't wake up for a feeding and change till about 3. Before he goes to bed he has a rice cereal bottle and I think that makes him sleep better and longer.

Mine goes to bed by 19:30. 19 hours give a warm bath and then bottle and cradle. I have done this since she was 3 months.She is 5 now and never complains. I wake her at 22:30 and give her the last bottle of the night and she sleeps until 6 in the morning.

It is all about your routine. You need to be consistent and that will help your child go to bed at the same time every night. Once you establish a routine then you can start doing it a little earlier every night and they will know it is bed time because you are doing all the things you do at bed time. It will take time but that is just how it goes. Both of my children go to bed at 12am but my husband works nights so I prefer them to go to bed then. Its just whatever works best for you.

my little girl is 4 months and 1 week and we got her on a good schedule around 3 months. we do bath time at 7:30, read some books, then feed around 8:30 and bed at 9pm. at first she would wake up around 3-4am for a feeding, and now that she is 4 months old we sneak in the room and put her binkie back in and skip the feeding. she falls back asleep, and sometimes now doesnt even wake up. she'll sleep until around 7-8am.

My daughter hates bedtime she seems to be convinced she is going to miss something, I have been trying to get her into a routine but its so hard as she fights me. I tried to put her to bed at around 9 - 9:30pm after a bath and massage, the problem is regardless of what I do she will take an hours breastfeed before I can put her in her cot and if she hears anything she screams and wants to get back up. It's exhausting fighting with her so I usually end up trying to tire her out and take her up to the spare room for her last feed, around 10:30pm - 11pm in the hope she will be in bed by midnight. It used to work reasonably well but at the minute she has cold and we suspect she is teething so she has started waking me for more feeds during the night, so I am quite exhausted at the moment and poor hubby is feeling really left out. Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated.

My daughter goes to sleep about 11 pm. If I get her up after her morning feeding and don't let her go back to sleep, she tends to take a nap about noon and then I can have her in bed by 10. I put her to bed when I know she is tired. You can always try keeping your baby up a little longer during the day. Hope this helps

7pm each night and sleeps until 7am-ish, although it has been a bit earlier lately with the sun coming up so early.

My twins are now 4 1/2 months. We have a bedtime routine. We give then a bath about 8:30, feed them, and put them down around 9:30. They sleep until 9-10am. We do the same thing every night. I've tried getting them to go to bed a little earlier but they won't go for it. I read about bedtime routines when I was trying to get them on a schedule and it has really helped. I just lay them in their crib after their bath and feeding and they both know it's bedtime. Good luck.

My four and half month old goes to bed anywhere between 10:00 pm till 11:30 pm. She will sleep all night until about 7:30 am or 8:00 am. I always give my daugther a big bottle for bed to hold her for a longer period of time. She has been sleeping through the night since she was two and half months old.

Since my little girl was about a month and 1/2 we have been on a sched. She gets her bottle at 7-7:30 after that we have a bath and use that sleeptime bath and then the lotion. . . after we bathe we get one more bottle about 9-9:30 and was out by 10 and slept until almost ten the next morning, waking at 7 every now and then. She turned 4months the 20th of Dec and we were visiting family for Christmas and she of course got a little out of wack because I was sick. We got back at it when we came home and NOW she gets fed cereal and a veggie at 7 with juice or milk and then we take a bath and have a bottle and our down by nine or so and sleep until 7 or later. She takes 3 naps a day and the ONLY rule we have is NO NAPS AFTER 7!!

My son is 19weeks old, since about 10 weeks i have had him into a routine, bath or shower between 5:30-6pm, he has his bottle at 6pm, by the time he has finished that, had his burp sat and watched tv and cuddles with me or daddy, I put him to bed at 6:45 with his dummy and his snuggle blanket, and he puts himself to sleep by 7pm. He wakes up at around 5:30am and I hear him talking to himself but it isn't till about 6-6:30 that he grizzles and I go into him. He loves this routine.

My daughter isn't on a set schedule as I'd like her to be but she gets her feeding around 6-7 and goes to bed afterwords. I feed her again before I go to bed which is anywhere from 11-1am, and then she's up normally at 7 but lately it's 5am again.

my Isabella goes to sleep around 12:30 or 1..but she sleeps all night until like 10 the next day..the dr said to wake her up and feed her if she hasnt woke up after 6 hours but when I do she wont take it she wants to go back to sleep so I let her sleep until she wakes up and wants it..9-10 hours is a long time but I guess she isnt hungry because she really lets us know when she is!

I am still breastfeeding my daughter who is 4 and a half months old today, and also she is on solid foods as well as her juice at dinner times. Her sleep patterns vary, although, the last few days she has been going to bed late and i think that it is the christmas and new year excitement. She has kept me awake between the hours of 3:50am and 5:00am

I give Sam his bath around 6:30, then I put him in warm pyjamas and his sleep sack, and then his bottle, and he's usually in bed around 7:15 or so. Having that nightly routine has really helped, because the bath and the sleep sack are real cues to him that it's time for bed. He usually sleeps until about 7am.
