DS has just started school. Over the summer we were quite relaxed about bed times going to bed around 830-9 waking 7.30-8. This week I have put him to bed around 8 and he is waking up at 6. This morning it was 545. I just can't believe he is getting enoough sleep for school on this schedule. He finishes at one until xmas, yesterday we just chilled out at home in the afternoon I am wondering if he needs some more physical activity after school.
dd (4.10 years) is asleep sometime between 7.45 and 8pm and is normally awake by 7am (sometimes a bit earlier if she wakes for a pee). She also sometimes (not often and never at the weekend!) has a lie in but I get her up by 7.45am so she can get ready for school and have breakfast, etc.
The early mornings may only be a temporary thing while the excitement of starting school is still fresh.
My dd (4) goes to bed around 7.15pm. She was up at 7.45 today, but we have had some much earlier starts - say 6ish. Usually after a few days she goes back to her average wake up time which is around 7.
You may be right about the excitement.No he dosen't seem particularly tired. I will continueto puthim to bed 730-8 next week,but if the mornings don't get a bit later may start giving him a later bedtime. Before 630 is too early for me
