Curious what time you think is a good bedtime for the kids, babies, and parents.A lot of people seem to put their babies to bed really early. My house is 8pm for the baby and 11 for us.

Our 6 month old is in bed by 8:30. And we go to bed at 10.

All three of my children (6,3,7 months) go to bed between 8 and 8:30. My husband and I don't really have a bedtime.

My kids' bedtime is 8pm and has been for the last 3 years (since they were 3, 2 and 1). Lately it has been 7pm because they stay up all night playing and my oldest daughter has to be up at 7am for school. The baby is 6 1/2 months and doesn't have a bedtime. She goes to sleep whenever she is tired and wakes up when she is ready. She has been sleeping through the night since she was 3 months old. My husband usually goes to bed at midnight and I go to bed between 12 and 1am.

A lot of it depends on what time the kids have to get up in the morning. Some people put their kids to bed really early and then complain because they wake up so early in the morning! My twins go to bed around 9:30 and wake up around 9-9:30 in the morning, my 3 year old goes to bed around 10-10:30 and wakes up anywhere from 8:30-10am. Im not going to force my kids to go to bed really early right now. Once it starts getting close to time for them to start school then I will slowly start putting them to bed earlier so they will get enough sleep.

Most of the time my kids are all in bed by 8 pm. Lately we have been struggling with the younger two though.

For really young kids I think that 8:30 is a good time for them to be put to rest. For adults, it just depends on differant things. I know people who can stay up late, then wake up early in the morning and function well. Im the type of person that needs a good nights sleep, otherwise I wont be in the right condition to get anything done the next day.
