What time do you put your kiddos to bed? My 2 yo has a 9:00pm bedtime and the twins right after so 9:30. I am discovering this is late compared to most. I feel like I would never see my girls if I did it earlier.

Re: Bedtime?

  • We put our 2 year old son down at 7:45-8pm.  It used to be 7-7:30 up until about 2 months ago.  We have been trying to put the twins down between 9:30-10pm gthe last week. They are 2 months old.

  • At that age, we put them down between 7:30-8 pm. Now, they get their last bottle at 6:30 and are in bed by 7:15pm on most evenings.

    Also what time do your kids wake up? We have a nanny and I do not go into work until 9 so the kids sleep until 8.

  • My twins aren't here yet but my 3 year old usually goes go bed by 7:30 pm and wakes up between 6:30 and 7. We have tried pushing back his bedtime but he still wakes up early and doesn't seem to be as rested.


  • The boys and our 2yo DD all go down right at 7. The big girls go down around 8 during the summer, 7:30 during the darker months.

  • All of our kids go to bed at 9. Sometimes we put the boys down as early as 8 if we're both really tired, but never before then. I tend to be surprised when people complain that their babies don't STTN if they're expecting them to sleep from 7P to 7A lol Our boys average 9P to 6A.

  • My 3yo goes to bed between 830 and 9 PM. He sleeps until 6 or 630 am. He's never been a good sleeper or needed v much of it. He does still nap, but whether he naps or not doesn't effect the duration of his nighttime sleep.

  • My twins are 11 months old and go down at 7:30 and sleep till 7:30. When I start work and we will leave early this will need to adjust. Early on their bed time was all over the place bc we fed them every 3 to 4 hours. They didn't sleep the night till 4 months old.
  • The boys go to bed between 7 and 8 and DD between 8 and 9. We go to bed between 9 and 10.

  • 7pm Sunday through Thursday.  7:30p on Friday and Saturday.  Even then it's sometimes 7pm if they are really tired.  The bedtime does not alter any differently than that.  They still sleep near 12 hours + and they are 17 months.

    With my older daughter, it was 7-7:30p every night until she was in middle school.  Then I increased it to 8pm.  When she hit high school, it was 9m. 

    She is now 22 (yes, really.  I started over :) ), and she is still really good about keeping a bedtime.

    Good Luck!
