What age? What time to bed? Lock Rss

I have been putting my 5.5 month old to bed at 7.30pm and she is waking anywhere from 5.30-7.30am. What time do you put you little one to bed?
What time is good?
I heard 7pm is good? HELP!
We have put DD to bed at 7pm since she was 3 months old and slept until 7am. However we are going to strech this out to 7.30pm very soon as DH isn't getting home from work until 6.30/7pm and wants to spend some time with her before bed.

Different times work for different babies but both my boys at the 6mth-ish age are/were going to bed by 6pm. They are/were both up at 6am but even if I tried to give them a later feed they would still be up at that time so I just went with their flow.

My DD is 5 months old. She goes to bed between 6.30-7.30pm. She sleeps through until about 5.00-7.00. She occasionally wakes about 4ish, i give her a quick b/f and put her back to bed and she goes through until about 8.00am. This is what she has been doing since she was 8 weeks old.

I put Jaye into bed at 9.30pm and she will wake up at 5.30am and than she is full of energy and just a handful and keeps me on my toes.

That is excellent that your daughter sleeps that long and I would be happy with that you lucky mum.

Chat soon.

my bub is now 9months old.

he goes to bed at 6pm every night. if he is really tired then 5:30. the other day he was exhausted and went to be at 5 !!!
he sleeps through the night and wakes up at about 7:30 in the morning. there has been a few nights where he has been unsettled which has been due to stomach pain or teething.
a lot of my friends put their bubs down to bed at 7:30, but ive always stuk to an early bath and dinner, bottle and into bed and its great because then i have the evening to myself.

Hi Rowie,

My son has always had his bath at 5.30pm and then, bottle and bed by six, since he was very little. I love this as it gives my husband and I time to ourselves. It also gives me some time before my husband gets home to get dinner going.
My son is usually awake between 5-5.30am.

Works for us,

Hi rowiechb_001
Try and have a look at the website it has free routines for different age babies, may be they can help you establish more of a routine for the evening.
Hope this helps
