My 19 week old has been going to bed between 9-10 since he was 7 weeks, i am not sure whether i should be trying to implement an earlier bed time for him, I have tried but he gets very cross when i put him down any earlier as he isnt sleepy and he crys and crys which is very stressful for my partner and I and for him!

Any advise would be grateful, I am wondering if i should keep trying for an earlier bed time or wait until he is on solid food and able to get more energy out by crawling etc.. before i try this?

My friends babies seem to go down at 7-7.30 but he is showing no signs of that.

Many thanks

Personally I would say go with whatever works for you and ignore what others' babies do.

DS has always gone to bed at 9 as that's what works for him and us.

What time is his last daytime nap and when does it finish? And how long does he sleep for in the day? You could try altering these around to get him off earlier?

You can only reasonably shift his bedtime by 15 min every few days.
