My 5 month son goes to bed between 7 and 9 and wakes up every morning at 6:30 regardless. He has a bath every other night and naps every two hours for a half hour. Lately his teething has been disturbing his sleep a little but he tends to stay asleep. For now anyways... ;)

My little guy gets a bath at 10pm then a bottle and is out by 1030pm. Some nights he wakes up around 2-3am but a bottle will put him right back to sleep till about 7-8am

HI,
my 5 month old has just recently started sleeping a little better but he still has a couple bad nights per week. On a good night he has his bath and then breast feed and straight to bed by 630 or 7pm at latest, he wakes at 1030-1130 for a quick feed and then back to bed til 5 or 6am. A bad night for him is bed at 7pm wakes at 930 for a feed and straight back to sleep and wakes again at 12ish and again at 330 and again at 6. Each time he wakes i try with the dummy sometimes it works and sometimes not, usually he wants another feed to settle. I think these night wakings are to do with wind and teething. He already has 2 teeth.

Lachlan still varies somewhat, but his bedtime is often by 8.30pm. Sort of 8.15 to 8.30. He was waking up at 7 but for the last few weeks it's been anywhere between 4.50am to 8am. I can't really complain anyway!

my little guy has been sleeping champion of the world. straight out of the womb he slept 6 hours at at night (usually followed by a 3 hour stretch). now he sleeps for about 14 hours with one feeding around hour 8. he takes a couple naps during the day, but is mostly awake.

as for bed time routine, he takes a bath then i give him about 3 oz of breast milk via bottle, and then he nurses belly down on my chest while i lay on my back. he usually falls asleep while nursing and then we put him down in the crib.

My son usually sleeps from 8 - 10PM then either wakes up or I wake him up to change him and give him another bottle. He is usually in his crib by 1030 or 11PM with music on and sleeps until 5 or 6AM then he eats and goes back to sleep until around 8.

We start our routine around 7. My little guy gets a bath every night, using the Johnson's night time soap, then gets lotion and PJ's, then an 8oz bottle and is usually sleeping in his crib by 8. He will usually sleep until 5/530, then up for 6oz and back down until 8.

My little man gets a bath, lotion and pj's and then I rock him to sleep with a bottle. We start his night time routine around 8 or 8:30 and he's asleep by 9. He usually gets up around 7 am, has a bottle and then sleeps until around 9. Having a routine really helped my son, he knows when it's bed time now and will start getting a little fussy around 8 or 8:30 (as soon as we start his bath though he calms right down he loves his bath!).

My son was sleeping from 8 (after bath and nursing) to 6 and he has since reverted to waking 2x/night. I have been trying not to feed him when he wakes, and he doens't really seem hungry, but he hasn't been able to sooth himself back to sleep. He is still in a pack n play in our room, b/c I am not quite ready to move my 21 month old son to his big boy bed, which will free up the crib.
I have been trying to feed him for 2-3 minutes, and always make sure to put him down slight awake, but I am frustrated that he was doing so well and now is up so much.

My daughter gets a bath every night around 9:30 and either eats before or after her bath, pending her feedings, then to bed usually by 10 at the latest. She wakes up anywhere from 8-9:30 in the morning. Some helpful things I was told was to change them into clothing (out of sleepers) when they wake up to distingush night/day and only put in sleepers at bed time. I found that really helped. within a week my daughter was sleeping through the night. The bath also helps relax them at night and after her bath I always put lotion on her and massage it in. She also has a mobile that projects moving lights (Fisher Price) and plays music that goes on for 15 minutes but she is usually out by then! She has been sleeping through the night since she was 1 1/2 months.

Every baby is different and no need to worry! Just try to set up a consistent bedtime routine and gradually your little one will sleep longer and longer! All the best!

My son is NOT a sleeper. He gets a bath every night at 7:30 and then nurses around 8. He will normally go to sleep around 9, but then is up normally 3-4 times a night and is ready for the day by 6:00. It is exhausting. He sleeps in an inclined sleeper because of reflux.

Our twins do sleep through the night but usually don't fall asleep until near 10pm and that'll be them until 8.30am ish. I'm hoping as they get a bit older they'll fall asleep earlier but we'll see.

My daughter goes to be around 7-7:30pm, gets up around 2:30am and then again at 7am. We do a bath every night and then a night time bottle. She also gets some solids (veggies at this time) around 6. I wish she would sleep through the night. I have tried keeping her up later but even then she still wakes up at 2:30am. I have tried to just give her a binky and hope she will fall back asleep but she doesn't so then I feed her and she will usually go back to sleep after that but every once in awhile she wakes up and is ready for the day at 2:30am....those nights are not fun!

My son is 5 months and goes to bed anywhere between 8 and 10pm...He has his bottle, then I snuggle with him for about half an hour and then I put him in his crib...If he isn't sleeping, I put on a little music...He also has a bath every other night (before his bottle as it helps relax him).
