We put Brayden and Ava down between 7-7:30. I have learned that it doesn't matter how late I put the down, they still wake up between 7-8...so I put them down the earliest they will go (SAHM here... :lol: ).

finn is typically in bed btw 8/8:15pm. i honestly do not see ANY established sleep patterns for him if hes fed/in bed a bit earlier or later. he usually wakes up once overnight to be fed, anywhere from 130-5:20am. but of course last night he was up 1150 and 320am so there goes that theory! hth...

7:40 every single night, right smack in the middle of jeopardy. Havent gotten to watch Jeopardy since she was 4 months old. gr. LOL. She STTN, and has since she was 5-6 months. The later I put her down, the more she would fight sleep, 7:40 was just the magic time to go to bed with minimal fussing.

Grifyn goes down at 7:30 every night. I wake him up at 10:00 for a feed and then he is out for the night. He will wake up around 7-730am.

Putting our LO to bed earlier WAS part of the magic equation for us. At 5 months old we moved his bedtime up to 7:30pm from 9pm & boom...STTN.
He's pretty much been sleeping from 7:30pm - 7:30am every night since. He's now over 7 months old & it's been wonderful!

Emma goes to bed between 6:30 and 7:30 (we usually start her routine around 6:30is and she's asleep by 7/7:30). Do you guys think that's too early? She wakes 2-3 times to feed, usually 12, 2 and 4.

Vivian's normal bedtime is 8, but this week she has been asleep by 7:15. She sleeps until i wake her at 6:30 during the week or she wakes on her own on the weekends at around 8.

Wow your babies all go to bed so early. Ds usually goes down around 9 but if he's a bit hyper he might stay up till 9:30. Dh doesn't come home until 7 so if I put him down any earlier he'd never see his daddy. He's a great sleeper though. He usually sleeps from 9 until 7 or 8 the next morning (only waking up to get latched on for night nursing and then we're both right back to sleep) and then takes 2 or 3 really good naps during the day.

:rofl: re: Jeopardy! We start our bedtime routine at 7:30, so I never get to watch it either! The theme song usually accompanies my walk up the stairs :D

Anyway, we do a quick bath, then jammies & a story, night night kisses etc. which takes about 20 min. Then I nurse her. DD is usually asleep by 8 or just after. Aside from a few regressions, she's been STTN consistently since about 5 months, and doesn't wake until around 7:45- 8 a.m. the next day.

ETA: she naps twice a day, about 2 hours in the morning and 1.5-2 hours in the afternoon.

I am one of the early ones too. DD goes to bed at 6.30. It used to be 7.30 when she had a nap at 5 - 5.45 but when she stopped needing that nap she couldn't make it past 6.30. She started STTN at 3 months (down at 7 then woke by us at 11.30 for feeding, sleep through to 7.30am) and at 7 months cut out the 11.30 feed. Now she sleeps 6.30pm - 7.30am

now i'm worried about getting flamed for not taking proper care of J! he doesn't go to bed until 9:30-10. he typically sleeps until 7ish, when daddy's alarm goes off and wakes all 3 of us up. he does STTN.

Well I usually bathe Teighlor between 8 and 8:30. I then give her cereal in a bottle with milk and she usually goes down about 9pm. She sttn from 10 to 12 hours at a time depending on how many naps she gets in that day. She is 6 months and has been sttn since before she was 2 months. I just hope it stays that way....lol Oh yeah she is teething also.
