    We do with DD (13 months) but go earlyish and are home in time for only a slighter late bed time. She's not walking yet but has always been pretty cruisey so easy to take out. shes never been a pram sleeper though!

    Yes, but not after a childcare day. We did that once and I think I am still in shock from the screaming and utter naughtiness. He was waaaay to tired to be out and I should have realised :s usually we go out for brekky if we are eating out and always get them to bring some raisin toast and a babycino out first

    Yes. We have always taken dd out for dinner atleast once a month. She will either stay up later than usual or go to sleep in the pram, it's not a big deal.

    We rarely eat out at nice restaurants but when we do we take all five kids including our toddler and they are all well behaved. When toddler starts to get bored I give her my phone to play her apps on and this keeps her happy till we are finnished.

    Yep all the time. I'm one of those really bad parents who let the iPad babysit whilst in the restaurant, especially when feral time hits

    For sure, I love taking DS out to eat, he really enjoys it and will always eat way more than he would at home!
    I
    We will try to go early 5.30 - 6 or will take his pyjamas and he can fall asleep in the car if he wants.

    No, we don't go out for dinner I prefer to go out for breakfast or lunch when everyone is happy and well rested and I can eat and relax - my youngest is not good when she is tired and won't sleep out in a restaurant. To me it isn't worth it. We get takeaway if we want to have dinner and not cook it, as DD2 will go to bed (DD1 will eat with us) and we can eat in peace.

    Yep. If its a late dinner ie after 7.30-8pm we feed them both then bath etc. Then they just snack with us and pass out on way home.

    Early dinners are usually local so we can be back for bath /bed etc.

    Depends on where and how late 'dinner' is. From about 10 months that sort of thing became hard with DS. Now at 19 months its impossible unless he can be free. He will only tolerate being seated at the table while HE is eating! Then he MUST get down and explore!

    So if its somewhere that is possible then sure! Like friends houses etc...

    If it's a restaurant then there really isn't enough time for us to eat before he's over it so no we don't.

    Plus he has never slept more than 10 mins in a pram and that's not reliable either so just gets more and more wound up and wild as he gets more tired. A toddler in that state is not fun for anyone, most of all the toddler.

    If he was an easy sleep anywhere guy then we would though.
