Hooray! My DS asleep at a normal time for the first time in two years :-)

That's it really. Ds has always been a good sleeper but very late - when his poor parents staggered in to bed ourselves in fact. Ds is very nearly two (7th September) and just given up on daytime naps (not encouraged by us but he just wont do them anymore) and as a result we can now put him down at 9-ish. It feels incredible to have a bit of evening to myself again after this long! Long may it last. Anyone else with similar experience?

What time does he get up then? If that's late too, why not get him up earlier. At least then you'd get even more of an evening to yourselves. Honestly I'd go mad without that - early mornings aren't my favourite, but I'd rather that than DS being up half the night.. grin

Hi there. Yes that was part of the problem - mum is a lazy cow who likes a good lie in grin. So Ds was getting up about 10 a.m which suited me - er - fine. It meant I sometimes got a bit of morning to myself. However since he is sleeping much earlier he is now getting up 8 or 9. He starts nursery in two days so we shall all have to be up at 7.30 as of then and no doubt I'll be able to put him to bed even earlier in the evening. Poor lad. Of course I Iove him to bits but having no evening to myself or with my DP was driving me nuts so this is all brilliant timing. I think getting up much earlier is going to be worth it!
