7:30

Bedtime routine starts at 7:15: Brush Teeth, read a story, get in PJs, say prayers
We cosleep so I lay down in bed with them at 7:30 and depending on our day I get back up sometime between 7:31 and 8 ;)

    You co-sleep with the baby or with all 3? I'm fascinated by people who can make co-sleeping work. I tried to do it with all 3 kids when they were babies, and it just didn't work for me at all. #1 - I didn't sleep as soundly with babies in the bed with me; and #2 - I like the privacy of just me and my husband in our bed. Bedtime by 7:30 is amazing! Now that my kids are older, bedtime ranges from 8 - 9:30 pm. Sigh...

    All 3! We have a family bed. It is not something I ever expected to do, and we have changed things around multiple times but yep - a big old bed full of 5 every night right now!!

    I should mention - when each of the girls were born, the bigger kids were moved to their own beds in our room so the baby could safely sleep in the bed. Even now, Hayden (11 months) sleeps on one side of me (with a bedrail on her other side), the toddlers sleep in the middle, and Daddy sleeps on the other side of the big kids.

    Oh Rinna, trust me... there are many, many places to make babies that are not the family bed ;)

    We have 2 twins next to each other... so just slightly bigger than a King. When our first daughter (Audrey) was born we upgraded to that and got rid of the actual bed - we just have box springs and mattresses on the floor so that if anyone does fall out (which has happened, but not often) it doesn't matter. As I mentioned, we still have a bedrail on the baby's side, but the bigger kids have fallen out before we get in bed, or when my husband is working nights and they don't even wake up when they fall out :)

      Bedtime here is 9. I try to have everyone squared away and in bed right at 9, but sometimes that doesn't happen. Usually though they are pretty good about it and we have a regular routine for pre bedtime.

      My daughter though tries to pick that time of night to chat about various things, an obvious stall. She also thinks I am mean because her friends don't have to go to bed that early. Well, I know how much sleep she needs, and she gets up at 6 am to get ready for school so 9 is a good bedtime. And I don;t care if that makes me mean. ;)

      I figure it's our job to be "mean." Take it as a sign of good parenting ;)
