I pick DS up at 5:15pm and we are home by 5:40pm. He had been taking a cat nap from about 6:45pm until 7:15pm, then we started the bedtime routine and he was asleep by 8pm. Lately, bedtime has become a nightmare. The catnaps have gone out the window. By 8pm, he is cranky and overtired. I can normally lay him down drowsy, pat his bottom a little and he's out...NOT anymore.
So, I'm thinking about experimenting with an earlier bedtime. Tell me your experiences please!
