Just wondering what time other baby's are being put to sleep for the night, I usually put my son down between 9-10pm, wondering if that is too late?! He is still not sleeping through the night, thought maybe I should change his bedtime to see if it helps him sleep. In the past when I have tried to put him down earlier, he still woke up 3-4hrs later anyway....

HI, I give my baby a bath every other night than feed her with cereal in her milk around 9pm and she sleeps till about 6am.  Before the holidays i would give her the last feeding at 11pm and she would wake up at 5am.  Little by little i have been putting her to bed earlier.  Also not sure if this helps but i have one of those sleep positioners and when she is not on it she doesn't sleep well, so that might be something u might want to look into.  GOOD LUCK!!!!

Taylor will usually go down for the night around 9:30pm and she will sleep until about 4 or 5 am.

my son usually has a nap between 7:30 and 8:30 pm. We then try and give him a feed (bottle but just starting on some solids to) at between 9 - 9:30. We then put him to bed straight after this feed and he usually then does not wake up till about 6 am. He doesn't usually require another feed until 7am

I have a night owl! My son doesn't go to bed until 11! We've tried to put him to bed earlier, but when we do, he's back up within a half hour or so and back up until 11! He's slept through the night for the past week or so but before that he was only waking once for a dream feed. He sleeps 11p-5a for a dream feed. I nurse him again at 6, just before I leave for work and he usually stays asleep until Daddy drops him off at daycare at 8ish. On the weekends, when I don't need to wake him to nurse, he sleeps 11-7 or 8

My daughter goes to bed around 8 or 9 and then is up at 3 am for a feed and sleeps till 7 am. I have started a routine of feeding, a bath (every other night), story then bedtime.

Hi, Emily for 4 days in a row now is sleeping from 6.30pm to 5.30am. As you can imagine I am thrilled with this. I have been giving her solids for about 3 weeks. So I am assuming this is the main factor in how she can now sleep so long. I also bf & never use formula. Even prior to solids Em was still sleeping 10pm to 5.30am on breast milk alone. So it's also not necessarily if the child is bottle or bf, it can also be if the child is a sleeper or non-sleeper by their own nature.

my son just started to go down early (8:30-9) he still doesn't sleep through the night, but i must admit its a lot better than the 2 am thing.  He only gives me 3-4 hours at a time also.  He only wakes to feed so its easy to put him right back down.  I hope it will get a little better when we start cereal next month.  I think its different if you breastfeed or bottle.  I BF him only and I know that BF babies still wake through the night to feed.
