Day 1

Tonight I bathed Aryn at 7:40, fed her and put her to bed - awake - at 8:20pm or so. It's 8:47pm and no sounds coming from her room........

I'm not sure what time is a "normal" time for infants to be put to bed, but I think I'm gonna bring everything back 1/2 hour and start getting her ready for bed at 7:30 instead of 8... it seems to work... fingers crossed and knocking on wood.

Happy Halloween!!


  1. You are a lucky duck if it worked for you on the first try!!! I still can't lay Madeline down awake and leave the room and have her fall asleep.

    Everything I read says between 7:30 and 9:30 is a "normal" bedtime for an infant.

    I start bedtime at 7:30, but she's only ever been asleep before 9 once.

    My fingers are crossed for you that Aryn jumps on board the bedtime train!!

  2. You will discover there is a very wide range of what's "normal" for babies. Leah stayed up until 10-11 til she was 6-7 mos old. She just would not go to sleep any earlier than that. Recently, she started going down around 8:00, and I'm happy with that! Graham was going to bed at 6:30 by 6 mos. I actually wished he'd stay up a little later, but you could set your watch by him. Graham's getting really fussy, oh it must be 6:30! lol


I love comments!
