As a first time mom with Connor, I was sorely mistaken. I had no idea that a baby’s bedtime was 6:30-7pm. I found that out 2 years later. I went with what the Dr. said- he had colic. Looking back at our experience, I call it self induced colic since we chose to keep him up and let him miss his sleep window. I had no idea. He slept like a champ at daycare because he was SO sleep deprived at home in the evenings. Connor didn’t get the right amount of sleep nor the quality sleep he really needed as a baby. When I first found out how many hours of sleep a child really needs, I realized how much I didn’t know as a parent.
