Mine, usually around 8:30-9:00 P.M. Never had an exact schedule. I know parents who put their kids down at 7 PM, I can't imagine that.

All of my kids go to bed at 8:00. My 2 girls (10 and 7.5) read or listen to music and my 2 boys (4 and 19 months) usually conk right out.

My daughter is 2.5. We try to be in bed with jammies on and teeth brushed at about 8:30. Then we nurse and read a book with mommy (until this week when she hasn't wanted to nurse...). Then daddy comes in and reads with her. Lights are usually out by 9, and she's hopefully asleep by 9:30.

My toddler is unfortunately a night owl, he goes to bed anywhere from 9 to 10pm and is up with the sunrise at 6am He is well rested and doesn't take naps anymore. Unfortunately that cuts down on alone time with hubby. We tried putting him to bed earlier but then he is up at 4 or 5am and thats not happening.

When mine were toddlers, I put them down between 7:30 and 8:00.

Now that they're 7 and 5, they go to bed between 8:00 and 8:30 most nights. My 7 year old falls asleep, and my 5 year old putters around in her room until 9:30 some nights.

When our now 17 year old and 13 year old were toddlers, they were in bed at 7:30. They were such good sleepers and even took a two hour nap on most days! Usually, they were up around 7:30 the next morning.

Fast forward now, our 2 year old toddler is NOTHING, I MEAN NOTHING like our other boys. He is like a little energizer bunny. He fights sleep for ALL its worth. He is thinks he is missing something obviously. He gets up before 7:00 and is getting to the point where he wont take a nap. He also would stay up until 11:00 if we let him! He even will poke himself in the eye to stay awake. He is a stimulus junkie. He is very active throughout the day. We did everything the same as we did with the older boys.

If you have little ones that go to bed early- ENJOY IT! If you have another child, they could be way different!

Mine usually go down right around 8:30-9pm & wake up around 8:00am. It's not perfect perfect every single night, but it goes fairly smoothly. Bath, book, prayers, bed. It's a quiet, simple, & nice routine.

7pm is a little too early for us at this stage in our lives.

7:30pm at our house - it takes a while for her to settle in and actually stay in bed so if we started any later it would be WAY to late!
