Bedtime ?? for 3-month old

I have been MIA lately--still dealing with Maddie's colic, which thankfully has been getting better. (Down to 3-4 hours a day of crying--thank goodness--and many more smiles).
I have been reading MW and wanted to get imput on bedtimes for 3-month olds. It seems like a sketchy area--Maddie was really good at sleeping-usually going down between 10-11 until 6-7am. however, my books say she should be sleeping 10 hours a night now. I tried going a little earlier about a week ago, about 8:30 and she was up 3 times over the night (a disaster!). This seemed to coincide with a growth spurt for 5 days, where she ate a lot and woke up frequently, but now DH doesn't want to try going to bed earlier.
I know CIO shouldn't start until about 4 months but for the BDTD moms, what time did you put your 3-month old down? (FYI: Maddie is not a good daytime napper so she could use more sleep).
I am now just getting over a very delibitating 4th round of mastitis and don't want to change things up unnecessarily! :)
Thanks in advance for your help!
