My LO is about 4 months, right now her bed time is about 9pm. Some people are telling me that is too late. I realize that when she starts school she'll need to get up earlier (she sleeps from 8:30/9-7:7:30 right now). However I feel like since those times work for us right now that its not a big deal.
Re: Bed Time
My nearly 4mth old daughter goes to bed around 6-7p. She gets beyond cranky if I don't lay her down then. If we are at church later than that or out and about...she usually is asleep by the time we get home. I just change her into her night clothes and she immediately goes back to sleep.
Don't listen to anyone else. If it works for you, then keep doing it. Bedtime will change constantly so go with what works for now.
My DD has always gone to bed around 7. That's the schedule she put herself on.
As for wake ups, DD1 sleeps till 7-7:30, DD2 till 7:30-8. So it all works out.
My neighbors' DD, same age as my DD1 has always gone to bed at 10-10:30 at night because the whole family are night owls. She then sleeps till 9:30-10am and has a nanny at home... Do whatever works.
