They have never been good sleepers but after finally getting them into a proper routine at bed time they go to sleep (relatively) easy between 7-7.30pm each night.
Then one or both of them will wake up between 2.30am - 3.30am every night. My DD will go back to sleep if i give her her dummy but DS will cry and cry until he comes into our bed. Which i don't mind doing but he squirms so i rarely go back to sleep and it doesn't even matter if i do as they ware both wide awake and ready to play at 5am!
Daylight savings made no difference, after three days it was back to 5am wake ups which i could probably deal with if they slept through till 5am but they don't. They are still having two sleeps a day because they get tired by 9am then need another one in the afternoon as well. This is partly why their bed time in sometimes as late at 7.30
Has anyone had success with dealing with early risers? They put themselves to sleep going to bed so they can do it but just refuse to do it early in the morning. My DH and I have three weeks off over Christmas so we want to tackle the problem now.
Sorry for the long post, i'm just so tired and out of ideas but cant go on like this for much longer (I work part time, have a 4 year old as well and a husband who is out of the house 13 hours a day)
