This might be a silly question but I've seen articles which say three to four month olds bed times should be 7:30pm, but at this age they are not supposed to be in a room by themselves. So do I go to bed also at this time or when it says bed time does that count as baby being in the moses basket downstairs with us as well?

Hiya, so with my little boy he used to sleep on us or in his Moses basket downstairs from about 8pm (ish) and then we’d take him up to bed when we went up and give him a bottle if he wanted one, change his nappy if he was awake, etc. But since he was around four months we’ve been putting him to bed in our room in his next-to-me crib at 8pm and then going downstairs with the baby monitor on him. I know it’s not recommended so I’m not suggesting you do this but he sleeps better this way and I watch him breathe constantly on the baby monitor. This is just what works for us so he can get a better nights sleep.
