Our 11 week old is sleeping through (has been for the last week). We've been putting him down when we go to bed at around 1030ish. When should we start taking him up earlier? I'm worried about taking him to bed earlier and him not lasting the night!

They should sleep in same room as you for 6 months if you are following guidelines so i would carry on as you are. That is what we do atm with 9 week old.

Exactly what CK said. Isobelle carried on going down in her moses basket with us downstairs until she was just over 6 months then we'd take her up to bed with us & transfer her to her crib in her room. Putting her down in her moses basket varied in time from day to day, we didn't get into a routine with exact times until 6 months.

At that age we were doing our nighttime routine of massage/bath boob/bottle and bed at 8ish. I would stay in the room with him either pottering or reading at he'd wake for another feed at half 10 ish then sleep through.
We moved it earlier at 4.5 months to start the routine at 7 when he started properly sleeping through from 7.30-7.30. It's only now that I go downstairs after putting him to bed. If you're happy to go to bed earlier or stay in the room occupying yourself then I would move it a little bit and see how you get on. If not, keep it as you are - it's obviously working as it is :)

F didn't really have a bedtime routine until he moved into his own room at just before 6 months. Until then, he'd sleep in his Moses basket with us in the living room and then we'd bring him up to bed when we came up. We didn't really put him down at a specific time, just followed his lead in and around feeds, etc.

We stared a routine around 3 months or so where we did bath,feed,bed at about 7ish. She would go to "bed" wherever we were, so in the lounge in her crib. We then did a dream feed at 10ish when we went to bed and she would then last through 'till 7am. We changed the routine when she was older, so she went down in her cot in her room.

I'd stay as you are for now. We started an earlier bedtime routine at 6 months, putting him to bed gradually earlier until he had a 6.30-7 bedtime, which he still has now.

Iv always put Isaac down at 7, I'd do bath and his evening cluster feed and take him upstairs at 7, he'd go to sleep and I'd either go on net or watch tv. All sleeps should be with you till 6 months

B is 16 weeks and goes down in the living room until I go to bed. I am thinking of starting to take him into the bedroom earlier and reading/on laptop until I go to sleep.

Does you LO feed before you go to bed?
O is 16 weeks and has a bath/feed about 6 or 7 and then sleeps in the livingroom with us while we watch tv. He will normally wake then about half 9 or 10 for his last feed and then I take him up to bed with me and we both go to sleep. He will usually sleep through then until 6ish.
He was looking for a bottle about 8ish but the waking at 3am and he changed the times he wants to feed himself to feed slightly later but then sleep until 6.
I don't plan to try and change his bedtime, once he's on solids and were thinking about putting him into his own room that hopefully he will drop the later feed and he will go to bed after his bath and feed so by 8ish
