We all get ready for bed together.  Boys go to bed at 9 o'clock.  Hubby and I go to bed when we're tired.  We regularly rise at 5am and have quiet time in the early part of the day.

8mo DD goes to sleep sometime between 7:30 and 11, DH goes to bed between 9 and midnight, and I'm up until past midnight most evenings. So no, we don't go to bed at the same time. However, DD has gone through phases where she couldn't sleep without me next to her, so in those situations I gave up my late nights to sleep with her.

My 3 year old DS goes to bed around 9ish. DH and I go to bed around 11. Once my little guy is out - I can pretty much have a party in his room and he won't wake up.sleeping.gif  It hasn't always been like that though, and when he was younger I had to go to sleep with him or he'd be up every 15 minutes.

Either my husband or I go to bed with our babe - but sometimes (unless I'm exhausted) not to sleep.

I'll read or have the laptop in bed but I hang out with the kiddo as we haven't invested in monitors.

Interesting thread, I was wondering what others do. :)

"Generally No" for us too.  DC co-slept with us for 5 solid years and then on and off for a couple after that.  We now have another baby who sleeps with us as well.  I know with DC#1 we did all kinds of different things depending on all of our needs.  I remember lots of times that DC would fall asleep with us in the living areas of the house.  Lots of sling sleep.  I remember a long, long time of me using my laptop in bed while she fell asleep and me getting up after.  Then there was the glory days of her going to sleep to a book on tape and us being in another room - heaven!  DC#2 is a little easier (or we are more relaxed!) and she goes to bed at about 7:30 and I go downstairs and listen for her on a monitor.  I hated the idea of a monitor with DC#1 but I love it with the second baby.
