    Default Bedtime routine and introducing solids. What's your routine?

    How did your bedtime routine change when you started solids?
    My DS is 5.5 months and has silent reflux. Paed has suggested solids rather than further increasing his medication and as he is showing all the signs of readiness we have started him.
    Food is such a fun happy time for him where he's exploring and playing, that it's not really relaxing or quiet 'winding down' time. Sleep has been a struggle for a few months until we introduced white noise a few night ago, I want to keep the good things rolling!
    He currently goes to bed between 6:30/7pm.
    What's your bedtime routine? Did bedtime push back when you started giving solids?

    Our routine stayed the same, except for one thing.

    4:45-5:30pm nap
    *Play - became dinner time
    Bath
    Quiet play (story etc)
    Bottle
    7pm bed

    I did find that the quick nap dropped soon after introducing solids though.

    I have always given my kids a bath as part of bed time routine since birth. Perhaps after eating he can have a play, then have bath, story, bed.

    my night routine looked something like this at that age:

    5pm dinner
    5:45 bath
    6 bf/botttle
    6:15 story
    6:30 bed

    Yes our routine changed a bit though not initially. We started having family dinners around 7-8 months, then bath & bed (fed to sleep). His bedtime actually got a little earlier but ds has always gone to bed late - usually 8-9pm.
