    Bed time?

    Advertisements
    No matter what I do, DS is always up late or later than I'd like.

    I try putting him down at 7:30 & he's out like a light until he wakes back up at 8. I'll change him, feed him, rock him, put him in his swing but he still doesn't fall asleep for the night until 9:30 (on a good night) or some time around 10:30.

    Is there anything else I can do? He already has a pretty strict routine... Feed, bath time, a little cuddle time, feed & then he falls asleep but then like I said, he's back up no more than 30 minutes later.

    Once he does fall asleep, he's amazing though. He gets up the same time every night for a quick late night snack around 2:30-3, then up again around 6-6:30 where he'll have his 4-6oz (that's like a snack to him too ) & then a nap until about 9, which is when he starts getting active for the day.

    That's a bit of the problem. If he goes to bed at 9:30 then we'll follow shortly after... 10:30 just doesn't work though because we're both exhausted by then & DH will go to bed before me sometimes.

    i totally feel you though, I forgot to add that in. I feel you.
    Between not going to bed until Joseph is ready (between 10:30 and midnight ) and him waking up several times a night, I am one tired momma!
    I need to do some sleep training, because I just cannot keep going on with little sleep, but dang it he is my baby I cannot listen to him cry!

    His doctor was like, "Just put him in his crib when he gets drowsy." Uhhh yea right. He'll be content for about 10 minutes until he starts screaming because he's not ready yet.

    You say he gets up again at 8, have you tried just waiting until then to put him down? Maybe that extra 30 min of him being awake will be enough to put him out for the night.

    I know its a win in our house if I can get Zach down within the same hour time frame every night. He would fight me tooth and nail if I tried putting him down at a specific time!

    Increase his bedtime by 15-30 mins earlier each time from 10:00. What worked for us is no naps after 5. And we play a lot so she's really wore out and tired by the time bedtime comes around. I put mine to bed at 9 because she wakes up at 9 and I don't want her waking up before that.

    At that age Aidan was going to bed around 1030-1130. He then slept until 8 or 9. We chose to let it go, since it was more important to us to have him sleep for a long period at night, then try to get him to sleep earlier. He didn't start going to bed at 730 until just before a year old.

    No naps after 430-5 is what helps in our house. Babies are tough sometimes with bed time.
