What time does your 4year old go to bed?

My ds is 4.6, and normally goes up at 8pm. However, he always gets tied aroung 2pm, but never goes to sleep and he always wakes up between 7 and 8 (time he goes to bed makes no difference).

So, what time does your 4year old go to bed?

In bed now grin

He will be asleep within 15 mins, he does wake rather early though, 6 to 6.30, price we pay for quiet evenings grin

My soon to be 4 yo goes to bed/bath at around 7pm - up at 6:30 am and no sleeps during the day...

I'm trying to work out if it is worth putting him to bed at 7! It's been one of those days

iamdingdong Tue 22-Jul-08 18:53:13

by 7pm, up around 6.30, no naps

if you are going to put him to bed earlier I'd suggest doing it gradually or it won't work!

by 7pm, up 6ish, no naps except occasionally in the car, sometimes conks out on the sofa in front of a disney video but very rarely

8 pm and he is up between 6 am and 7 am usually.

jofeb04 Tue 22-Jul-08 18:56:47

Ds is having his quite time now, so he has still got milk and story to go yet. Probably more half seven!

bed about 7.30
asleep between 8 and 8.30 (she likes to read,, play, chill, wander up there... go to the toilet etc... )

up between 6 and 7

would fall asleep for a nap in the car if out mid afternoon. she can get tired but have tried earlier bedtimes and it doesn't work. later bedtimes just mean she is more likely to have a sleep mid afternoon, resulting in later bedtime. never sleeps in!

8pm usually - but will be later tonight as we're having a BBQ - and it's not even lit yet grin

jofeb04 Tue 22-Jul-08 19:16:50

Ds is in bed - reading a book (lol)

He did say he was tied though!

Seona1973 Tue 22-Jul-08 19:32:37

we leave dd's room around 7.40pm - it used to be 7.30pm but we gave her 10 minutes extra for good behaviour - which we can take away if she is playing up. She wakes any time from 6.30am but normally around 7am unless she needs a pee earlier than that.

jofeb04 Tue 22-Jul-08 19:34:32

Ds is sound asleep, along with dd!

dd 4.10 and usually goes to bed around 7:30. (she is in bed now not asleep yet!). No daytime naps (never does unless we have had some very late nights) and usually wakes about 7:30 am sometimes earlier.

ChazsBarmyArmy Tue 22-Jul-08 20:23:36

DS1 is 4.11 On school nights its bath at 6.40ish with DS2. DS2 to bed at 7pm then DS1 has a story and a chat before sleep at 7.15-7.30pm. Normally up around 7am.

Holidays I might push it back an hour but DS1 does start to get cranky when he is tired.

mumtoone Tue 22-Jul-08 21:17:28

DS is 4.9 and goes to bed around 7.30pm and wakes at about 6.30am during the week as I get up then. He doesn't nap during the day.

beckykj Tue 22-Jul-08 21:32:35

DD is 4 in 6 days and goes up between 7.30 - 8, wakes at 8am. No naps but she would if i let her.

DS1 goes to the bath at 6.30pm and is usually in bed between 7-7.30pm he sleeps for 12 hours

Dottydot Tue 22-Jul-08 21:36:06

ds2 is 4 and ds1 is 6 and they both go to bed at around 7pm. Once or twice a week it's probably nearer to 7.30pm but they're so knackered if it's later than that that I can sometimes get them to bed without complaint at 6.30pm blush grin

bythepowerofgreyskull Tue 22-Jul-08 21:39:05

dotty I am with you...
yesterday I had just had enough so the boys went in the bath at 6pm and were in bed for 6.30 - DS1 only ever sleeps for 12 hours though so I paid for it next morning him waking an hour early
