‘At 7.15 we put them to sleep’
As it stands that reads like a vet referring to putting down animals
But if he said
‘at 7.15 we had them asleep’
‘at 7.15 we put them down to sleep’
then the situation IMO is different.
Saying we had them asleep implies to me that the parents had read stories, relaxed the children by chatting about the day etc and therefore the children had gone off to sleep naturally
To 'put down to sleep' is quite different in meaning to 'put them to sleep.'
If the quote is 100% correct then it may well be significant.

the mail article is based on a Spanish television report. I expect this is a slight translation error which has put a worrying slant on what was actually said.

Yes, that could be the simple answer in this instance.
