4.18 this morning That's the worst so far Pah at your 5-5.30 5 is usual for me, 5.30 would be a bit of a lie in. Any time before 5 I consider a failure Am also hoping that as the days get shorter my nights will get longer - DS had 8 hours sleep lasst night (just over) I need that much myself!!
It's not just you. Ds3 has been waking up earlier and earlier, and I am getting knackered. But ds1 and ds2 are very 'seasonal' too so I'm not really surprised. Like you, I am looking forward to the nights drawing in. We are past the summer solstice now, hooray .
DS3 15 months often awakens between 5-6am - but thankfully will usually not insist on getting up if I/DH go in, avoid eye contact, do not speak to him, find his dummies (he has 2 ), hand them back to him and leave the room. He will invariable be v cross and scream for about..... oh, dunno, 30 seconds and then gobacktosleep! Usually until @ 7am which is fine, obviously (except on a Sunday morning , but, hey?!). Worth a try maybe for all your early risers??
BTW, DS1 was an early riser as well, still does not need a lot of sleep. DS2 slept A LOT and still does. So surely, like with lots of other behavioural things, personalities come into it as well, non?
well it was 4.30 this morning but as I was in bed at 8 last night it doesn't seem too bad. DS went back to sleep after 45 minutes for once - I couldn't Desperately hoping it is a summer thing. Also he is getting a bed fairly soon which might make life easier
Do I win? Ten past four this morning. It was my turn to get up which means having to bring her downstairs for milk and a sleep on me. When it's dh's turn he goes in, says shut up silly baby, go to sleep, and she does!!! I think it should always be his turn.
I have to admit being up during the night is harder. DS sometimes wakes but most of the time it's for a quick feed and then straight back to sleep. Hate it when he doesn't re-settle. (Hope I haven't jinxed it now!)
Oooh, love sleeping during the day. As soon as DS goes for his nap, the cat and I head back off to bed (not sure how this will work when I return to work...but surely they have to let me sleep? It's a basic human right or something?)
Its godawful isnt it. Ds has always been an early riser. But can I just say it does improve. Well he has anyway.
Hes 2.4 now and whilst it varies, now and again he doesnt wake till half 7. Usually its more like 7 and often when its my turn to get up with him (like this morning) its 6 (the monkey). But hey - compared with 5 its like some kind of miracle (and he no longer wakes for up to two hours in the night as well - he did that till he was 2)
Dd firmly believes that 5am is a late morning. Was 3.30 the other day, wide awake and up for the day We are managing to convince her that waking for a feed every 45 mins is slightly unreasonable so she woke hourly last night She is of course only 6 months old so I can forgive most of the night wakings but she has considered 5am morning since birth. You think if I shove her int he same room as her brother his sleep will rub off on her? He usually wakes around 7.30, frequently after 8 at weekends. I love my ds
