I started putting my son to bed at 9 in the evening. I feed him dinner by 6 every night then let him go play. At 8 I start getting him ready for bed. I bathe him for 20 minutes, brush his teeth, watch a short movie like Dora or Diego, read him a book, sing to him and then tuck him in. It has worked so far for me. After he got use to the routine he is in bed asleep by 9:30 every night. My doctor also told me that I can put up a small gate in front of the door so he can't wander around especially in the middle of the night. My son has gotten use to the idea, now he may cry but it's ten minutes tops then he crawls back into bed and goes right to sleep. Hope I have been some help. Good Luck!!
