I started my youngest going to bed at 8:00 p.m., but he would only wake early up in the morning disturbing my sleep. So I tried 9:00 p.m. Weirdly, he would still be sleepy when I wake him for school and would sleep the whole way to school. So I tried 10:00 p.m. It worked perfectly! But....that is too late in my opinion for a child to go to bed throughout the week.


Each child is different ,they know what they need. Some babies eat more than others ,sleep more, don't compare children after looking at some charts .One of my sons slept from 8 PM ,woke early ,6 AM ,my daughter was a sleeper ,I had to wake her up for Dr. visits LOL . Today ,my son at 35 is up at the crack of dawn and my daughter at 28 , still loves to sleep!! Know your child ,allow them to set a schedule w/ you Enjoy and love your babies!! Don't worry about a set and rigid schedule


My 6 month old son goes to bed between 8-9pm and wakes up around 6 to eat but sleeps again for another hour or so..Other times he can't stay awake past 7pm so i let him go to bed and he wakes around 5 for a bottle then sleeps more.

Depends on your little one :)

I am all about schedules with my little one. Dinner, bath, bottle, bedtime story then bed.


it depends on the child but the best amount of sleep for them is minimal 8 hours to 10 hours of sleep so they can be fully rested and be ready for the next day or two they have a fuller attention span to learn things new and exciting everyday my kids always going to bed between 8-9 my youngest two go to bed around 7 -8 o'clock, so it really does depend on your child and your family schedules


Both my son and daughter are in bed by 815. My son is 1 and my daughter will be four next month. They have had a set bedtime since my son was about 4 months old. Bath time is at 8 and I've gotten it down to a science for washing drying brushing teeth and hair so that they are in bed by 815 820 at the latest. They wake up anywhere between 7 and 9 which works for me :)

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
