Think about it Sunday- the perfect bedtime

What do you consider the perfect bedtime? When do your kids nap?

When I was a little girl- (ok until I was in like 8th grade lol!) my bedtime was 8:30. I hated that! I was always up by about 6-6:30 and couldn't sleep in until 8 for the life of me! Last summer we were just blowing in the wind, and since we had 1 bedroom in the house the baby slept next to our bed, so she went to bed when we layed down to watch tv. She didnt have a bedtime at all. (But she was still up 3-5 times a night so it didnt really matter anyway. On a family trip our cousin put their baby down at 7:00 and we thought that was NUTS! But when we moved into our new apartment and she still wasnt sleeping through the night I figured it was time for a routine! SO we started off with a 7:30 bedtime. Baby has a nap at 10 and another one at 3, she will sleep 1-2 hours the first nap and around and hour the second one. If she doesnt get an afternoon nap or misses the morning and has a late one in the afternoon she goes down to bed at 6:30!! GASP! I never thought I would be the parent putting my kid to bed that early! But I have really noticed a diffrence in her behavior and I think the extra sleep does her good, because she still wakes up between 7-8 in the morning!

So what do you do as far as bedtime and naps go? Any good tips and advice you can share with us that might be useful regarding sleep?

  1. Jason does so good with sleeping through the night. He usually goes to bed between 8 and 9 and (sometimes) sleeps until 6:30 or 7:00. It is wonderful. I just can't get him to take a long nap in the afternoon. After he wakes up at 7:00 am, I feed him and usually put him back down and he sleeps for like 2 more hours(it's awesome if I want more sleep or need to get ready). I guess that counts as his morning nap. The afternoon nap is about 30 min. Sorry that was a long comment.
