What's the oldest age you've introduced a bedtime routine? And how did it work leaving it late?

Hello Loopy!
Well DD was probably about a year old. I went back to work (pt) when she was 17 weeks old and selfishly wanted to spend as much time as I could with her on the days I had been at work.
DS probably about a year but because he was demand feeding and hated solids he would still want lots in the evening. I think I wanted it to be sooner but he wasn't playing ball! Certainly by the age of 2 he was quite happy with a feed then going to bed.

well, from memory, they were all staying upstairs from around 5months (ds1) to about 7 months (ds2).. ds3 was somewhere in the middle.

what i mean by that is that they were still waking up for feeds (ds1 wasn't, he slept through quite early, but the other 2 still woke)... but generally from around 7.30-ish they would just wake for feeds and then go back to sleep, so i would keep them upstairs in the cot and just pop up to feed them

I just gradually began to notice with all iof them that after their evening feeds they weren't really alert and would settle back down to sleep if i tried... so that was my cue to start putting them in the dark upstairs and not keep them down with me
