It can be very difficult to find a bedtime routine that works for you and your family.
While some parents are lucky that their newborns sleep throughout the night, others have to wake up every hour or two.
One mother has divided opinions online when she shared what works for her and her baby.
Victoria, a mother-of-two, took to TikTok and revealed that she puts her baby to bed at midnight.
“Why I put my baby to bed at 12 am,” she said in the video that has been viewed over 2 million times.
“I never understood why parents would put their babies to bed at 7 pm,” she said. “That just means when they have their full 12 hours of sleep, they would wake up at 7 am.
“And us being stay-at-home parents, this isn’t very necessary.”
She continued: “As long as the baby has their needed amount of sleep, the time you put them to bed doesn’t matter. This is a man-made thing.
“So she sleeps from 12am-1pm and that’s what works for our family.”
After posting the clip, it has received more than 80,000 likes and over 5,200 comments.
One person wrote: “So basically, you’ve decided to give the baby the cycle of an unhealthy teen so you don’t have to parent for the first six hours of the day.”
Another commented: “Yeah no babies aren’t meant for that… it’s your job as parents to make sure they’re getting a healthy sleep schedule and this is not it.”
A third said: “You’re setting her circadian rhythms now for the rest of her life it’s not about what’s convenient to you.”
Other TikTokers agreed with the mother and admitted that they also do the same thing.
One person said: “Please normalize this. 1000000% agree we don’t need to conform to society’s timings.”
Another wrote: “Only matters when they are school-aged. You do you mama.”
A third added: “90 percent of the moms in these comments just mad cuz they woke up at 6 this morning.”
