...about my 2 ds (4 and 18 months) waking everyone else up at stupid o'clock .
This weekend will be the first time that we've camped with children and I'm beginning to get a bit paranoid now. We've just been to a wedding and stayed in a family room at a hotel. Ds2 woke at 5.30am, spotted his older brother and that was it. Even when he's in a good mood, has toys and/or a dummy, he chats away at the top of his voice. Ds1 will stay in bed and be mostly quiet until his portable nightlight goes green but I've realised that we've no way of keeping ds2 quiet.
Ok, sorry lol! I would say put to bed a little later than usual in the hope he will sleep in a little later. Can you find something to fling over the tent to make it darker in the morning? Put your tent in the furthest corner, explain to the site and ask for the most suitable pitch? Get up and off the campsite asap, maybe for an early morning walk, when he does wake, then come back later when other people wake up? If it's a family oriente campsite I'm sure there will be others with the same issue.
Mmm, you're right, I can see bracing walks in the early morning drizzle sunshine being the order of things . We're going to to try keeping him up, so fingers crossed. Maybe if I have lots of wine, I won't hear him either .
