    We made the transition to eating together with bub, hence the later bedtime. It was hard to be organised but it's quite nice now.

    Downtime is important though! We don't have much ourselves

    Do what works

    I guess I'm just wondering if it's ok to leave him up there talking to himself and rolling around till he falls asleep? Or should he be asleep within minutes of going down?

    We did try putting him down near 7 last night and he was still awake for another 45 mins

    DS is 15mo and his routine is roughly:

    6-7am up for the day
    Breakfast
    9/9:30 nap of about 30-40mins, often in the pram
    Morning tea on waking
    11:30/12 lunch
    1pm nap for 1-2hrs, sometimes longer
    Afternoon tea on waking
    5:30pm dinner
    6pm bath
    6:30/7pm bedtime

    DS likes his day sleeps. He's not ready for going to 1 sleep yet but I'm hoping he'll do it soon.

    Sometimes he sleeps longer in the morning so only has a short afternoon nap. I'm not rigid with the routine. I also have a 4yo DD so we try to eat as a family most nights if possible.

    If your bub is happy and it works for you, then stick with what you're doing. Happily chatting in the cot is fine, it's probably how he gets himself ready for sleep at night.

    I think it's ok as long as he isn't distressed or crying. He is still getting a good rest. The only time I would think it's a problem is if it affects his night or day sleep.

    My bub isn't that old yet, but if he's happy chatting, i reckon leave him to it! Especially if u tried the later bedtime and he chatted away for 45 min anyway. Sounds like a happy bub ☺

    If he's happy, leave him Having a little chat to himself may now just be part of his self soothing routine x

    DS is 16 months and his day is like this:

    7 - 730 wake up and milk
    8 - breakfast then dress and daycare
    9.30 - morning tea
    11.30 - lunch
    12-2pm sleep
    3pm - afternoon tea
    6pm - dinner followed by bath
    6.30 - milk
    7-730pm bed

    We rarely have to go in to him after he's gone to sleep now and if we do its around 11pm and for a dummy.

    Whe he goes to bed at night though, he will often lie in his cot talking to himself for maybe 15-30 minutes. But he's not unhappy or crying so we leave him be. When he wakes in the morning, he will also lie there for a while chatting before he lets us know he wants to get up!

    Our boys are twins! This is exactly what my DS does and is his routine.

    OP I think 6pm is probably too early for his bed time to be honest. Have you tried 7pm?

    Hey my DS is in this routine now 😄

    We have tried putting him to bed late, earlier, read to him, rock him to sleep but nothing makes a difference so we just leave him to it now.

    He goes down about 6:45 and usually talks, play, doses off up there for an hour before fully going to sleep. He must just like some wind down time first.

    It's funny because during the day he is asleep with minutes
