Bedtime routine for babies?

What is your bedtime routine for your 8/9/10-month-old? And do they sleep through the night??

Following. I’m having a hard time with my 10 month old

We have a 9 month old, as a rule I don’t allow napping after 4:30. Bath around 6, he’s generally asleep for 7 and NOW sleeps through. The sleeping through is very recent and it’s thrown off our entire day routine for the moment.

At that age, we started getting ready for bed at 6:30. We did pjs, bottle, brush teeth, read a book in a dim light, then bedtime around 7. He slept all night.

Still trying to figure this one out lol I have a 13 month old and he’s still not sleeping through :weary: I’m used to it though

My LO lays down between 8-9pm and wakes up 8-9 am. He has been sleep trained since about 5 weeks old. 13mnths old now

My 10.5 month old is nursed around 7:30 bushes teeth and cuddles and is in bed by 8 and yes she sleeps through the night until 7-7:30

Bath, lotion, story time, snuggles. Put to bed slightly awake. Slept through the night.

My now 1 year old has this routine and we’ve been doing it for months… After daycare we sit on the deck and let him run around and play and get some wiggles out… Generally he will have a snack of some kind, usually a mango or 2… Then into the shower with me or my partner while the other sits on the floor out side the shower and we play… Peekaboo around the corner of the shower or sliding in the bubbles or what ever he wants to do… Showers are always made to be fun so he doesn’t see them as a chore… And we love it too… Once he’s finished one of us wraps him in a towel and goes to our bed, quick dry off and let him air dry and play naked for a bit… Nappy on, jammies on, bottle and into bed… He’s just been put into a toddler bed and we’ve kept the same routine and had no issues with the transition… He sleeps all night even in the new bed and when he’s awake in the morning one of us goes in and brings him into our bed for a quick cuddle then we are up for the day… Normally he’s in bed by 630pm…

Lay down at 9 and falls asleep when shes ready. We don’t have to be up super early, though. So that depends on your schedile.

All babies are different, each one of my kids has slept differently even if the night time routine was the same. I suggest just continuously trying new things until something sticks but dont stress about it. The more you stress about bedtime the worse the whole experience gets.

When my son was around that age, naps stopped after 2. “Supper”, bath and bed around seven and he slept through the night. Honestly since being 8 mo he slept through the night unless in need of a diaper change, then with potty training.

maybe i’m one of the lucky ones but my son has slept through the night since 2 weeks old :slight_smile: he’s now 17 months.
our bed time routine has been solid since day 1. at around 8/9/10 months it consisted of, supper around 530/6 pm.
wind down 6-7pm which usually consists of independent play with no screen time.
7-730pm bath time.
730-8pm get dried off, lotion, jammies.
8-830 bed time bottle.
asleep by 830/9pm.

it gradually changed as he got older but nothing serious. his bed time now is usually 9-930

Naps before 2pm should make it to wear they go to bed around 630 7 and sleep the majority of the night. Still do it with my 3 year old granddaughter. Works like a charm

Bath bottle bed and it worked perfectly for him :blush:

All kids are different though. Just be consistent. If doing bedtime bottle take them away from activity to calm and relax
