In our family we don't have an awesomely rigid schedule for the daughter's bedtime. All the experts, books, friends, and family say you should, but somehow we haven't really ever caught onto it. However, we're coming around. We have to put up with the fussing and fighting now, of course, but it's happening. I feel a little like one of the families from SuperNanny (although definitely not as dramatic/bad as shown there). Having to continually put her back in bed because she believes she needs us by her side. In the end she breaks down and will settle for pretty much any kind of compromise. We're sitting just at the doorway now as she nods off, and will keep moving outward until she's grown past the need.
