    DD (6months) probably an hour for dinner, bath, bottle, bed
    DS (20 months) is a whole other ball game, probably looking at more like 3 hours at least

    About 1.5 hours including the time taken to eat dinner.. just from start of bathtime to lights out is 45-50 minutes. She's 14 months.

    For our 17mo and 3yo we have dinner at 5/5.30. Bath at 6/6.30 and 7./7.30 (if we are both home otherwise it's bath together if just me) then feed bub to sleep (usually by 7.30 but sometimes 8) then stories and cuddle to sleep for eldest by anywhere from 8 to 9 by the time he goes to sleep. So if you count dinner, and I tend to, then it's four hours. 3 hours just counting bath story bed. Our boys are very active and need a long bath to wind down. Especially the 3 yo.

    5 minutes. I don't mean to sound obnoxious but when DS is tired (Around 7pm) I literally just put him into a fresh nappy and jarmies, pop him in bed and off he goes.

    We shower or bath at different times, it's not part of a bed routine. And we don't usually read him stories in bed, moreso throughout the day.

    Ours is a long one too... DS1 is 22 months and DS2 is 14 weeks...

    Feed DS2 so DS1 can have nice quiet diner and concentrate on eating, around 6.
    At about 630 we have play time, WILD play time to use up all his extra energy after diner and feed DS2 wrap him up and pop him into bed.
    Have a bath or shower around 730pm and then read books until 8.
    Into bed for DS1 and hold his hand until he falls asleep, up to 45mins later. DS2 wakes for another feed at 830 there abouts, so if DS1 is not asleep and hubby is not home from work to take over, all hell brakes loose!
    If I know hubby won't be home I lay both of them in bed with me and hope like hell one eventually falls asleep and stops keeping the other awake!
    Then I sit on bub hub and recover from all that draining routine!

    I'd say on average 1 hour after dinner- shower, bottle, teeth, story, bed , ( 15 month old DS) one of us will stay in bed with him until he falls asleep , normally anywhere from 5 mins if he is tired to an hour if he is overtired !

    Dinner, bath, Charlie & Lola, bed.

    Dinner is 5.30-6, straight into the bath, C&L than bed. Can get it all done in an hour. If DH & I muck around, the kids string it out & start the delay tactics.

    Same here!

    DD (2 years old) and I often shower/bath together around 5pm but it is mostly a fun activity rather than a particularly relaxing one. Sometimes DS is with us, other times he is just looking at us from his bouncer, with a slightly stunned expression! Sometimes we will even bath earlier, to break up the day a little.

    We have dinner at varying times, but often as late as 7pm. DD is usually carried to bed from 7:30- 8pm. She is usually awake but talks and sings to herself in her cot, before falling asleep. When DD gets a little older we will probably incorporate a story-time while in bed, but at the moment this is not part of the routine. DS (7 months) usually is bf to sleep after we have had our dinner, and usually sleeps until the next feed around 11pm.

    Unfortunately we have no officiel bed time routine as such.

    Sunday and Monday nights when it's just the kids and I it's usually dinner 6ish, then maybe a treat, then I turn the shower on and shower each as the others do their teeth and go to the toilet, all out and into pj's, then I read them a chapter or 2 of the current book we are reading (Folk of the Far Away Tree atm) then light out 7:30-8ish. This might vary slightly when DH is home too and on the nights when I work any hope of anything even slightly resembling a bed time routine goes flying straight out the window, I've arrived home at 8:45ish on a school night to find them still at the dinner table........
