  • i've got droopy eyes with you honey!! My boy was 2 in september and has always been an early waker at about 6am but goes through phases of waking earlier (and we're having phase at teh moment!!) he was up at 4.16am this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    He came in bed with me and he dozed off again, but he's such a wriggler in his sleep, I can't get back to sleep!!! and its a killer as i'm working full time at the moment!!

    he ususally goes to bed about 7 / 7.15 and i've even tried putting his bed time back but it makes no difference. He also still needs a nap during day otherwise he's a grumpy so and so come 5pm and then has restless nights!!!

    I don't what to do to get him to sleep later, How i'm coping with it is by being in bed by 9pm!!!!!

    sorry not much help x
  • Is it always 5am? I did the baby whisperer with my two, and I did the wake to sleep thing when they were babies, (get up an hr before they do, wake them slightly till they stir then leave) not sure how it works on toddlers, but might be worth a go x
