Curious if anyone else has struggled with an LO that still has a late bedtime at almost 6 months of age? His awake time is 2-2.5 hours max. but depending on how long his naps are kind of dictates his 'bedtime' these days. We have a bedtime routine (although a bath is every other night) but as of about 4 months it depends on last nap on what time it starts.

I would love for him to be in bed by 8:30-9, right now it's more like 10-10:30 which is way too late, for multiple reasons! Not good for him, not good for us! I'm thinking a lot of it has to do with structure, during the summer there hasn't been a ton - either away on a couple of trips or to sis' cabin. So we're not always in our own bed.

Should I start with waking him at the same time everyday?

Any input would be appreciated Bees! Oh, if it helps - we co-bed & EBF.
