I find it impossible to get my son to bed before 10pm. i make sure he is fed by atleast 7:30pm, he had a bath shortly after but after he wont go to sleep. I turn all the lights down, read to him and he still wants to play. in the morning i even have to wake him up to get him ready for daycare. Does anyone have any suggestions for me to get him to bed at a decent hour?

It might help if dinner is a little earlier if at all possible. The sooner in the eve. you can start your routine, the better. We start ours at suppertime (which is around 6:30) 7:00 is bathtime, then we watch just a little tv. at 7:45 we brush teeth and read one story (which is usally about 15-20 mins. of reading, but we let our daughter pick it out). then it's bedtime about 8:00. This works for us, but i imagine that your son isn't quite ready to sleep so soon after eating. hope this helps. good luck
