    Default What time do your kids go to bed?

    And what house stuff is there still to do?? My kids are 1,6&8 and can never get them off before 8.30. Bub is bad sleeper so I often need to go myself around 9.30. Not feeling I have much time - I try and tidy up / sort washing but also need to bath! And there are my dreams of studying or doing something non child / house related but Argh fitting it in!!

    My DS is in bed by 7:30pm and wakes about 3-6 times a night I'm in bed by 9:30 normally sometimes later, but I'm always too exhausted to clean or do anything so my house is a huge mess!
    During the day I can't get much down as DS has separation anxiety and screams if I walk away or try to do anything that dosnt involve him haha the joys!

    My 9mo and 2 1/2 yr old are in bed by 7pm 9/10 nights. I really only do whatever I can until about 7.30 then will sit and relax with DH. I tend to do a little cleaning each day so my house is never all spotless but never filthy

    I find myself relating so much to your posts. I have a 4yo, 2yo & 6 month old. The older two are in bed by 7, but the younger one is around 8.30 & I find I get so little time to catch up on the day's jobs, let alone have half an hour to myself at the end of the day. I'm just telling myself that in another few months, her bed time will (hopefully!) align with the older two, and I will have some time in the evenings again. I do find that with the third child, I have to begin the bed time routine so much earlier to the older two in bed by 7. I usually start bath by 4.30, dinner at 5.15, quiet time/ tv from 6 - 6.30, and teeth, story, toilet, etc & in bed by 7. Any later, and bedtime just seems to get pushed out later. Sometimes if I find they are going to bed too late, I will wake them up earlier in the morning for a period of time, because I really value that evening time. Good luck, and I totally hear you!

    Kids in bed at 8, house stuff done by 9pm, then I sit down and fit in what I need to do...go to bed 11-11.30, up at 5.30am. I live in a constant state of exhaustion and all of my kids are school aged. This parenting gig is not for the faint hearted x

    At that age, 7pm. Now it's about 8pm. Although they take a while to fall asleep.

    DS is 2 and usually goes to be between 7-7:30. Occasionally he'll be ready for bed around 6:30 if he's had a big day, but I prefer not to put him to bed earlier than that. We don't have a bedtime as such for him, he just goes to bed when he asks for teddy/bed or starts getting grumpy and say yes to going to bed!

    My DD is in bed at 715-730. Usually. She's 2. We have a nighttime routine.
    Once in bed I chill out with DH watching tv and playing on my phone.
    DD often doesn't stay asleep though.
    I only have her...so no advice really on how to manage lots of bedtimes. But routine works here for us.
