Re: please share your bedtime routines :)

i hv a 5yr old and a 3yr old and this is our schedule. dinner between 5-530 then bath from 530-6/615. get in jammies, brush teeth till bout 630, 3stories, prayer/kisses and lighs out by 645-700. sounds really early but they get up at 600am for school and it ussually takes 20-30 mins before their accually asleep. we also let them lay in the same bed and till about 6months ago they ussuallly just slept with us but we werent get much rest that way so to the kid beds they went. i think everyone sleeps better now.

You probably don't really need the box springs unless you're getting a really nice/expensive mattress. I think the box springs are mostly to allow air flow around the mattress - they also work with the mattress for stabilization (warranties are often void if you don't buy the box springs). Yeah, I'm a dork... we just bought a new mattress and I researched it to death.

I'm no help when it comes to helping your babies sleep!!
