Is your LO easy to put to bed at night? Was your LOeasy to put to bed but now has gotten harder or vice versa?

Jacob used to go to bed so easily. I would bathe him, nurse him, he would always fall asleep nursing and then I would put him down and he would stay asleep. Now I bathe him, nurse him, he falls asleep and when I lay him down he wakes up and starts crying. the last two nights it has taken me over an hour and a half to get him to go to sleep. I'm not sure what is going on and of course DH is no help at all. His solution last night was to just let him cry himself to sleep which I just can't do. I finally got him to go to sleep and thankfully he slept until 6:30 this morning which was great because he never does that.

Thankfully Jackson my 3 year old goes to bed really easily but he has always been so easy to put down even when he was a little baby.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Pete is so difficult to get to sleep now. He pretty much refuses to nap and passes out randomly at about 5pm. Then he doesn't want to go to bed until 1 AM because he took a later nap.

He used to be so easy. I would nurse him, and he fell asleep within 3 minutes. I really miss that time!

Addy typically falls asleep taking her final bottle, if she doesn't, she fidgets and fusses for a few minutes trying to get comfortable (while we rock her) and finally falls asleep. The past couple of weeks (with the exception of one or two days - last night being one of them) she has slept through the night, from about 8/9 until 5/6. I consider that fairly easy.

Reagan, who is almost 4, is usually pretty easy, although sometimes she tries to prolong the bedtime routine, she typically falls asleep quickly - she takes her vitamins, brushes her teeth, we read her a book and sing a song or two, then I lay with her for a few minutes and then I say goodnight to her and leave her room. Some nights, she waits until that point to say, I need to go potty or I need a drink, I make her go to the bathroom and tell her I am leaving when she is done, if she wants a sip of water I bring it to her and then tell her to go to sleep, but, she always stays in her bed, most of the time not crying, although there were a couple of nights a few months back that she would cry and I would have to go back in and hug her and kiss her and sing her one more song and then she would be fine. Sorry for the run on sentence...lol!

We have had the same bedtime routine for over a year now. Dinner, or a snack if he ate early, bath, story, song, bed. We start at about 7:30 and he's usually down by 8. In the summer sometimes we start a little later since it is still really light and his window is on the west side of the house. He goes down awesomely. He will usually sleep until 8 in the morning.
