What time does your LO go to bed usually? What is your bedtime routine?

DD used to go to bed around 9, although the last week or so she's been getting tired around 8 so we've been putting her to bed then. She used to get up at around 9am...now she's getting up earlier so that's been a rough adjustment for me...I'm sleeeeepy.

We don't have a huge bedtime routine. If she's not too tired we will read a couple short stories to her. DH changes her, brushes her hair, gets her PJs on and brings her to me in bed where I nurse her till she's asleep or almost asleep and then I sneak out. Sometimes she'll wake up between when I put her down and when we go to bed but usually she falls asleep quickly again.

I put pj's on around 7 and she will bf and then fall asleep. Sometimes she won't fall asleep until 8 or so but she sleeps through the night (for us that's inbetween 5 and 6am.) On alternating nights we take a bath at 7 and then continue on the bedtime routine.

Bedtime is as close to 8:00 as possible. We take a bath between 7:30 and 8 and then I nurse him to sleep and put him in his crib.

Bedtime for the girls was 9:00, but then everyone here got a stomach bug. Our sleep schedules have been off since. We were waking up at 7:30-8:00 every day, now the girls and I get up anywhere from 8:00 to 11:00. Insane. I am constantly tired cause no one is on a schedule. I know how to fix it: set my alarm and start waking the girls up at the same time, but I'm tired! =P

DS1 goes to bed at 9PM and I put Evan down in his crib within 15-30 minutes of that, depending on when I've nursed him. (Sometimes he's starving at 8PM, so I feed him then and then again at 9 or 9:15.) He almost never falls asleep on my chest in the evening, so I sing him "Hush Little Baby," turn on a white noise app on the iPhone, and put him down awake. He screams anywhere from 0-25 minutes and then falls asleep. He'll either sleep until 7:30AM or wake up to nurse at 5:30 and go back to sleep until 8AM.

Hopefully by the end of August he'll go down earlier and get up earlier, because I go back to work then and will need to leave the house by 6:30AM (unfortunately).

Evan James (2/18/12) and Gabriel Anthony (6/5/10)

Claire falls asleep anywhere between 8 and 9. It was 9:35 tonight and she was a crank for the last half hour. She normally wakes up once to nurse and wakes up for good between 8 and 9.

Robby goes to bed between 8 and 9 pm, depending on how active we were that day and whether he napped well. He eats solids anywhere between 5:30 and 6:30 pm, and then every other night he has a bath shortly thereafter. He hangs out for a bit (plays with Daddy when he's home), and then gets nursed as soon as he acts cranky. Once he nurses, I put him in his crib (usually awake), where he plays for a few minutes, then rolls onto his tummy and falls asleep.

My baby don't have to much of a routine.Some nights it is 8,9,sometimes10 until we hit the sack.He is pretty much stuck on me we co-sleep so whenever he is hungry at night I feed him and fall back to sleep.He is usually wide awake by 7 or 8 in the morning.Wide eye kicking me....Love the morning smiles...They have to be the best thing to wake up too...Oh and he usually gets a bath everyday. either morning or mid-day.He loves water.

Maddox goes to sleep at 9 and DH and I sit down with Caddigan to watch an episode of what ever series we're working on (bones currently) I feed Caddigan on the couch and after she's fallen asleep I put her in her sleeper. Bathes are done in the am.

Eliana is definitely a night owl, she doesn't normally go down for the night until 10:30.
