    My 3 year old DD goes to bed about 8pm. Just can't get her down any earlier than that. She is sometimes still awake at 10pm though. Then she sleeps in until 8am sometimes, so the cycle continues!

    Last night it was 10.47 before DD was asleep, but she's only gotten up about an hour ago, at about 9am.
    Apparently, some bubs don't need as much sleep as others, our CHN gave us a list of average sleep times for all ages, and there is so much variation!

    I've got 2 like that I need Supernanny!! lol

    DS1 used to go to bed at 8pm, and it would take me nearly an hour to get him to sleep. Gave up on that and let him tell me when he was ready for bed (anywhere between 8 and 9) now it's getting ridiculous. Not that he isn't tired but will NOT relax and close his eyes. 10:30 last night, 11 the night before.

    DS2 might fall asleep around 8:30 but will wake an hour later. The later he goes to sleep, the longer he'll stay asleep. Not that I want a cranky baby around either, but I have to laugh at the books that say 6:30 bed time. Yeah right! It's still daylight, even up here, and there's a snowball's chance in hell of me getting those boys down then.

    I'm hoping when DS1 starts school in a few weeks it will help tire him out for bed at 8 again. If he goes down, sometimes it's easier to get DS2 in bed too. Other nights it's like he's been sneaking coke!! Bouncing off the walls etc. Obviously tired but will not settle.

    Anyone got any ideas about that???

    Yeh mine (9mo) goes down anywhere from 9pm-11pm. Occasionally she'll be tired enough to nod off at 8ish, but that's rare. The last week or so has been shocking for late nights, but I blame the festive period, disrupted routines due to being out (visiting family and whatnot), and me being home every day again. Hoping now the new year has started that she'll settle back into her routine again (as will I lol).

    My son used to not go to bed until after 10pm otherwise he would sleep for 2 hours then wake up every other 2 hours. However after a few changes he now sleeps from 730 and has a good 12 hours sleep through the night

    Happens here too, no one is in bed before 8. Any earlier & they wake up far to early.

    DD was/is still the same, even when she was a newborn, she would not sleep (she was awake for 8 and a half hours when she was 2 weeks old).
    I tried getting her to bed really early, but it didn't work, and some days, she won't sleep, unless she is in my arms, with a nipple in sight.
    I have just decided to let it go. I try to have her in bed by 7pm, but then it is 3 hours of me laying in with her. She has a day sleep at 11.30 now, but then again, it is 2 hours of me laying in bed with her. Boring. I read a lot.
    i think her all time staying up record was 4 in the morning, but that is a distant memory.
    She is a sticky beak, so being in the middle of things, is far more entertaining than sleep, lil ratbag. I am surrounded bu childcare "experts", and even they have given up on "fixing the problem", so I just go with it.
    Your DS will outgrow the really late nights, I promise. In the meantime, you just have to find ways to stay sane. It is really really hard to deal with, so you have my complete sympathies.
