What is your 2 - 3 year old's bedtime?

ExH and I disagree on this. DS is 2 1/2 years old and at my house he goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:00pm. At ExH's house he goes to bed between 9:00pm and 9:15pm. IMO that's way too late for a toddler to be getting to sleep, but maybe I'm wrong? What time is bedtime for your toddler?

Re: What is your 2 - 3 year old's bedtime?

We bring him in his room around 8:00 8:10 he doesnt go to bed until around 8:30 8:45 lately... especially when its nice out we spend time outside so it takes longer to get things done and off to sleep.

I think 9 is ok.. but you have to see your YOUR DC reacts to that bedtime.

Re: What is your 2 - 3 year old's bedtime?

I agree with you but probably because my DD has always gone to bed early'ish.

Emerson's bedtime has been the same since she was probably less than a year old. She is in bed at 8 and she sleeps until between 7:30-8am. I don't like keeping her up later than 8'ish, she's tired by then and needs the rest. If I try to push her later she tends to be more restless throughout the night but every kid is different, does you son seem rested going to be later?

DD was always a 7 pm bed time but as she is approaching 2 years old it seems to be getting later and later.
Now it's more like 730- 8 pm

Between 7:30 and 8. (Not that I have a 2 year old; I'm answering for my former and future 2 year olds!)

ETA: My 6.5 year old still goes to sleep at 8!

Re: What is your 2 - 3 year old's bedtime?

Anywhere between 8-9pm. Depends on her naps or what we are doing that night.
She usually wakes up around 730 no matter what time we put her down

DS goes down between 8:30 and 9. He can sleep as late as he wants in the morning most times though and still takes a 2 hr nap.

I do think it's important to be consistent though and have a similar bedtime each night.

DS is 2 1/2 and we bring him in & start getting ready between 8pm & 8:15pm. He's tucked in no later than 8:30pm. When we make exceptions & put him in later than that his sleep tends to be more restless & for some reason he often gets up earlier than if we had put him down at 8:30!

My dd is the anti sleeper. She goes to bed late. On a good day 9pm, bad day 10:30. My son went in at 7:30 at that age. She still gets up between 6 & 8, so it's not like she sleeps late.

Re: What is your 2 - 3 year old's bedtime?

DD is 2.5 and her bedtime has been 8pm for a long time. She will go down at 7:30 if she hasn't napped and sometimes 8:30 if she has and we're just running late or out late but once she's in bed she's out within 5 minutes.

DS is 2.5 and he used to be in bed by 7 and asleep by 7:30. But as he gets older hes able to stay up later. And with the time change, hes now going down at 7:45 and asleep by 8:15-8:30. (It always takes him about 30 mins to unwind and finally relax once he goes into his crib.)

Anywhere between 8 and 830 the latest on a normal day.

If we are out sometimes a little past 830 but if we can we try to be home in time for his bed time.

since daylight savings, she's chatting and yelling from her crib until 10:30 Chat Icon

same for both my daughters. we tried our hardest to give them a solid 8:30/9pm bedtime (no way we can do earlier based on our schedules.) but they fight it. especially my 3 year old. it's often 10pm or a little later that she falls asleep. but you know what, she's great during the day. not cranky, well-behaved. so what can i say? she was having a little trouble waking up for school, but that's getting better, and on the weekends when she wakes up naturally, it's 7:30-8am and she's in a beautiful mood with tons of energy.

It used to be 8:00/8:30 but she recently stopped napping so now it is more like 7:30/8:00. She is wiped by then!

Re: What is your 2 - 3 year old's bedtime?

Depends on the day but most nights he is in his room no later then 8. He's usually asleep by 830 & rare occasion 9. He does nap 2.5 hrs. But if he had a shorter nap, he will be in his room by 730.

DS is 25 months & he's in the crib by 7:30-7:45pm. Sometimes we'll let him stay up an extra 30 min on a friday or saturday night.

DS (2) goes to bed about 8pm, but he doesn't really fall asleep with all his excuses until closer to 9pm.
