When do you put your baby down for the night? When does he/she wake up? Im a first time mom and have a 3 week old, im not sure what a good time would be to do this at. Right now the times seem to vary day to day..Thanks for any advice ladies :)

At first I would try at 8 when she came home, and she slept til 12:00 in the afternoon (woke up every 2 hours to eat) now I still do it around 8 but sometimes its a battle since she is teething so she don't sleep til about 9:00-9:30. She wakes up at 5:30 am most of the time, if not 7:30am. If she is up at 5:30am she don't go back to bed til 7:30am and then is up at 8:00-8:30 for the day. But she is almost 7 months and still wakes up every hour to 2 hours.

It is futile to try and get your baby on a schedule at 3 weeks. I would just put her in her crib or ba__sinette after a feeding when you want to go to bed. You are going to have to get up and feed the baby every 2-3 hours so it really isn't a true bed time. Good luck to you, it will get easier I promise.

I have always since the day my baby was born put him to bed around 9 pm....and I would keep him sleeping...(if he woke which he did for the first 3 months) I would change him and feed him and put him back down...after 12 hours, I would let him get up if he is up. The first month 1/2 he woke up 2 a night. and then he woke 1 time a night. Now he is 9 months old and only wakes when he is going through a growth spurt. Which is once a month about...for about three nights. He will wake at 6 am and eat a whole bottle.

My baby slept every 3 to 4 hours and woke up to eat and change diaper for the first 3-4 weeks, than she started sleeping longer stretches but still woke up every 4 hours at night, during the day she would start to stay awake for a bit longer. At 8 weeks she decided she wanted to sleep all night so she slept at 9pm til 5:30 in the morning eat then change her diaper then go back to sleep till 9 am. Now she is almost 12 weeks and i have her in bed around 8 pm and she sleeps until 6:30 am and wakes up for her first bottle and change then sleeps until 8 am then is up for the rest of the day with about 2 naps inbetween. She is also a big baby at 12 weeks weighing 15 pounds and 26 inches long which is off the charts for a baby her age she was also almost 9 pounds when she was born. It may be why she sleeps a bit better because she just isn't hungry at night. I am not complaining at all! she is a very happy alert and healthy baby, everything a mom could ask for:)

when we first brought dd home she slept whenever...I was so pumped up to finally have my baby that I didn't try a schedule w/ her. I was up with her off & on through the nite. once I finally crashed due to lack of sleep... we decided to wor on a sleep schedule. so I decided to try a routine. at 8pm she feeds then she plays with daddy until 9... at which time she gets a bath followed by a nightime ma__sage with night time lotion...she feeds once more and I put her down patially asleep(usually around 10). she then sleeps until 4am feeds goes back to sleep again at 7 then shes awake for the day at 9. but lately shes refusing to nap so shes going to sleep around 8pm and following the same routine. it took a week to work her into that schedule. she is 3 months old...and has been on this routine over a month and a half. I didn't think she'd recognize a routine...but she took right to it. and now if we waiver from it she lets us know. gl... and the lotion is a dream its johnson & johnsons bedtime lotion it smells wonderful...and dd loves it...she also sleeps to a disneys cla__sic lullaby instrumental cd. I know it seems cliché but they actually do work!
