My 5 yo would definitely stay up later, I'd aim to get him to bed around 9ish. He sleeps with a light on so I'd be more than happy to chill in bed with a book/Netflix (with headphones)

If it’s just me and DS then I’ll go to bed when he does but if OH is there then DS usually ends up sitting up with us.

Often felt like sitting in the pitch black when my two DC were little and were super excited about staying in a hotel and chattering, jumping on the beds and hanging off the curtains (only kiddinghmm) but we didn't do bedtimes when away from home.

We had a soft light on and then when she was asleep put more lights on didn't wake up and we had the TV on low toosmile

I give up! I meant 10pm. Am going to go now. Can't type

Sorry for typo in my previous post. My ds goes to bed around 10am when we are away.

Same as bookaholic. Sometimes abroad when she was v young we put DD to bed and then sat on balcony drinking wine. But mostly she either slept in pushchair (which converted to a pram/carry cot bed) if we were out. Or she stayed up and joined in the fun.

No bedtimes on holiday.

Bookaholic73 Tue 07-May-19 17:34:48

Same as singlenotsingle it’s a holiday, the kids don’t have bedtimes.

When I go away it is just me and ds. I watch TV on my tablet with headphones on when it is his bed time. I also don't and read, have a cup of tea. Also my ds doesn't go to sleep very early so it works out ok for us. But I guess it is different if there are two adults.

No. It's a special occasion so bedtime goes to the wall. They stay up and have fun.

You stay in a hotel overnight with your child (age 5) and it's their bedtime? We are visiting some friends at the end of month and staying in a lovely hotel. We have a family room, but our daughter goes to bed at 7... do you just sit in pitch black lol?
