What is a proper bed time for a 7 month old?

Can anyone tell me what the proper time for a 7 month old? I bathe my baby around 8 or 830 and she sleeps until about 630 or 7 am. She takes the pacifier but usually wakes up about once or twice looking for her pacifier. I give it to her and she falls back asleep. I have a night light for her but she still ends up looking for her pacifier. Is that normal?

does she co sleep or are you getting up to go to her room? I would suggest that you not find her pacifier for her when she wakes. Taking it away from them by age one is ideal. She is actually not looking for a pacifier as the reason she wakes up. All babies stir and wake throughout the night. The difference with a baby that requires something to soothe her to go back to sleep is they will not simply settle down and fall back to sleep without it.

As far as your hours of sleeping are concerned babies will actually sleep longer if you put her to bed earlier. You may be surprised to find that when she is put to bed at 7:00 she will sleep until 7:00. You can give it a try.
