Failed sleep experiment

A things worked out tonight, we got dinner together and eaten really early. So by the time I had both boys bathed, dressed and we all took a walk around the neighborhood, it was still only 7:30. Cal seemed pretty tired and napped poorly today (did two one hour naps, never did a good long one) so I decided I'd try and get him to bed earlier.


I seriously spent more than an hour trying to get him to fall asleep. When did he finally fall asleep? 9 p.m. The same exact time he's fallen asleep for as long as I can remember.

And he was clearly tired. Showing all the "Sleepy Cues"™

None of this matters really I just take it as validation for my belief that this concept of 7:30 being the perfect bedtime for all babies is absurd. It's definitely a good bedtime for some: many even. My cousin's son Henry for example would literally expire at 7-7:30 every night. Like falling asleep in the highchair tired. But definitely not either of my kids.

Can you tell I'm a sleep training skeptic?
