    DD is 2yrs 3mths and she goes to bed at 6.30/6.45. She will sometimes be awake up until 7.45 or go straight off to sleep. She seems to be crashing pretty quickly now that it is lighter in the morning and she is awake earlier. Also I restrict her nap to 2.5 to make sure she's not up until 9pm!

    DS is 7 and bedtime is 7pm. Most nights he is asleep within 5mins. Sometimes he lays there singing to himself which can last for 15-20mins but he dozes off no issues 95% of the time. Weekends he is usually all crashed out by 8pm at the latest. I was up at 5:30am today and he was wide awake all set up on the couch with cartoons on.

    7:30 is bed time, as in that's the time I want them in bed lights off, eyes closed. So if we're going to read a book (we don't read every night) we'll go to bed 15 minutes earlier so we can read, or if we're going to watch a movie till bed time we make sure it's set to finish just before 7:30. They sometimes much around for a little after they're in bed, but they're generally pretty good and getting better

    20mo DS struggles to stay awake till 6:30 but we try to hold him out till then as he wakes early as it is. Asleep within minutes.
    Neary 5yo DD is between 6:30-7pm. She can tell the time now and negotiates with us. Thinks 7pm is really late so sometimes I let her "win" ha.

    5yo is 7.30pm, but a lot of the time we're so rushed after work it may be 8pm once we've done shower, PJs, book routine. She normally sleeps until about 7.30am, longer on weekends.

    1yo is just a mess. She's normally ready by 6pm and that's the plan, but she hates sleep these days so she kicks up a fuss which then screws up DD1s routine. No matter what time she goes to bed she's up at 5am.

    Up until recently 6yo DD has been in bed by 7.30 and always asleep by 8. Lately she's been struggling to go to sleep before 8.30. She's up around 7.

    16mo DS is usually asleep by 6.30, awake once most nights and up for the day around 7 as well.

    My five year old DS generally goes to bed between 7:30pm and 8pm, depending on how long he spends in the bath/how much reading we do. He wakes up around 5:30am each morning.
