Are we different or what?

It seems like I’m on a boat all by myself, well… with baby.

My almost 7 month old is very strict on when he needs to sleep, and he won’t budge.  It’s not my doing. He just decided he was going to sleep and wake up at a certain time and babies like knowing what’s coming next.

When I tell people I won’t go somewhere at night, the shock in their faces is apparent.

My son has a schedule and his bedtime is between 6:30 and 7:30 at the latest and that is pushing it. He’s not a very good day napper. He naps 2-3 times, if he naps that third time it’s a catnap. His longest nap is usually the morning one, between 9 and 10:30, he’ll nap again around 1or 2 pm and we’ll be sleepy around 4, he may have a catnap, he may not.. if not, he’ll be fussy by 5:30 and I’ll be trying to keep him occupied so he won’t complain.  (I’ll break down his daily routine better in another post)

It seems that I see babies out and about at late hours of the night, 9, 10 , 11, midnight? My son would cry bloody murder if I kept him up that long.  When I’ve pushed his bedtime back to 8:45 he would not settle down and cry. I understand, he was overtired, and calming down an overtired baby is no joke.  What about you mamas? Can your baby stay up till those late hours? or does he cave?

Thanks for coming by!!
