DD(2yrs) goes to bed at 7pm after bedtime routine starting at 6pm.. seems to be exactly the same as our neighbours dd who's 8. So being nosey...
How old are your dc's and what time do they go to bed??

notnowbernard Mon 14-Jul-08 20:00:42

4.6 and 23m

go to bed between 6.30 and 7pm

tassisssss Mon 14-Jul-08 20:02:47

5 and 22 months.

Bed at 7pm. Long may it continue.

dd2 is almost 6 weeks and yet to be convinced that a 7pm bedtime is a good thing, but given that she sleeps a good deal of the day, i can cope with her awake in the evening!

ds (21 months) is around 7.15/7.30pm

13 and 11 - 9 on school days; around 9.30 at weekends (maybe later if we're been out or are in the middle of a game or something).

Aim for 7.30, usually 7.45. DCs 4.5 and 6.5 share a room usually chat amongst themselves for a bit. Let them go a bit later at weekends or holidays

DS' (3yo and 1yo) start bedtime proceedings at around 6.45pm and are usually in bed by 7.30/8pm - I honestly don't know where the time goes every evening...

Alambil Tue 15-Jul-08 00:59:14

5.5 yrs bed between 6-7pm

slim22 Tue 15-Jul-08 04:56:53

mine (4) goes 8pm-7:30am schooldays / 8:30pm-8am weekends

Out of curiosity what time do your DCs wake up if they go down 6 or 7pm?

hellish Tue 15-Jul-08 05:13:11

This thread has made me very envious.
my dds 8 and almost 6 are currently sleeping from 9.30 / 10.00 until 8.30am /9.00am.

It's very frustrating , even if we get them upstairs at 7 (very rare), it still takes them that long to be asleep.

egypt Tue 15-Jul-08 05:23:09

dont worry hellish. my dd is just 4 and although i can get her upstairs for 730 she's rarely asleep before 9. pants isnt it. dd2 who is 1 sleeps from 6pm if she hasnt napped. if she has rarely asleep before 8. grr

hellish Tue 15-Jul-08 05:27:28

It's crazy - they are in such holiday mode- school finished 3 weeks ago and any trace of routine has gone out the window.

sakurarose39 Tue 15-Jul-08 05:33:54

Mine are 9 and 10. They are in bed by 9:30 and asleep by 10. They get up at about 7am.

Gateau Tue 15-Jul-08 08:29:51

Our DS is 15 months and isn't usually in bed until 8.30. And then it can takes ages for him to get to sleep!
He simply doesn;t seem ready for bed at 7-7.30. And on the days he goes to nursery, I would only see him for 1.5 hours if he was to go to bed at 7. So it suits then.
So it works for us - but I do sometimes wish he went to bed earlier!!
Anyone experienced similiar? I do feel a bit of an odd one out/crappy mother lacking solid routine...
