I always had a bedtime routine from the time my daughter was 7 months old and up until she was 2 years old. The routine stopped because she refused to be read or sung to like we usually had done. The previous nighttime routine was this: Dinner (6pm), bath (7pm), brush teeth/hair (7:30pm), read a book and sing (7:35 - 8pm), bedtime/sleep (8pm). After she turned 2, she decided she didn't want us to read or sing to her anymore. It turned into a huge battle with her. She is 3 years old now and it now takes three hours just for her to stay in bed and fall asleep. The schedule has staid the same except for the reading and singing. Is there any other ways you put your child to sleep?
