Last week, my god-mother tagged me in a picture on Facebook that detailed the time that you’re children should be going to bed from “sleep-trained” baby to graduation. I didn’t save the picture because I’m slow, but if I recall correctly, it started at like 6pm for a baby and went up 15 mins every year, so per Excel, it should have looked something like this:

06:00 PM
16:15 PM

Me.. Personally.. In relation to my own upbringing and scheduling of my own child..I found this laughable and ridiculous! I don’t ever recall going to bed this early as a child, for many reasons, but the more I started to think about it, the more I wondered if my sister and I were the minority instead of the majority..

Since joining the motherhood community, I obviously have become much more interested in the ever growing science that IS child-rearing, so I feel like I have a pretty decent, unbiased sample size of opinions to have an open discussion about this. Muffin does not have a bed time anymore, but even when she did when she about 7-9 months, it was 7:45PM. By this chart, which I admit is a estimation  since I couldn’t find the original, she was going to bed at the same time as a 7 year old and now she EASILY stays up past the time that a 20 year old!
