Sometimes it’s hard to know when the ideal bedtime should be for your child. As a newborn, a set bedtime is virtually pointless, since your baby will be sleeping 75% of the time anyway. However, as your baby grows, you’ll find you can gradually migrate towards an earlier bedtime as they start sleeping for longer stretches as night. Our bedtime chart by age below shows exactly what those bedtimes should be.
