    About 1/2 hour for DD1. That is me saying 'Okay, time to get ready for bed' at 6pm, brushing teeth, chasing her for 10 mins to get pyjamas on, reading 2 stories and kissing goodnight. On bath nights it takes an extra 15 min and on nights she is being 'difficult' it can take an hour. DD2 i do the teeth, pyjamas and bath at the same time and then about 10 mins after DD1 has gone to bed (and is asleep) i give her a bottle, read a story and put her to bed - that takes about 10 mins.
    My night routine with my youngest used to take about 3-4 hours but her sleeping improved dramatically in the last month so now she is much easier and quicker to settle to sleep. (thank goodness as i wasn't coping very well).

    ETA: My girls are 3.5 and 21 months.

    DD is 2.75 yrs. My partner doesn't get home till 6:30 so we all eat dinner together then (DD has a bath at 5:30 so I can make dinner for us). After dinner quiet play so DP and I can chat about our day. 7:30 upstairs and brush teeth and stories. Then lights out one song kisses and we walk out and she falls asleep by herself (mostly 10-20 mins) she normally talks to herself or sings her teddies songs. We used to lie down with her till she fell asleep (and before that rocked her in the rocking chair and before that I breastfed her to sleep - our "routine" has been an evolving process and I am sooo pleased that she is now able to happily put herself to sleep and never cries in the process!!!)
