what time does your child or children go to bed and what time do they wake up?
my kids go to bed around 630 but lights out after story and twinkle song. then wake up around 8am.
mil says that they wake up to early. ps we live with inlaws.
In bed at 7- lights out at 7:30 : sleep until about 6:45. Mine are just shy of age 6.
8 am in NOT early at all! If/when your kiddos are school age and you attend a preschool/public/co=op, it is likely you will have to be out the door around that time unless you do PM program.
Kids rhythms are usually naturally pretty early (with a few exceptions of course).
I've never had a kid sleep that much, ever!
DD1 is 8, we have lights out between 8-8:30pm, aiming to have her out by 9pm. It doesn't always work, she has a hard time going to sleep sometimes. She is up by 6:30am, once in a while she will sleep in till 7 on the dot.
DD2 will be 5 this month. Lights out by 7:30, asleep before 8. She wakes up anywhere between 6-7am, she is usually up by 6:30 though.
DS1 is two and all over the place. He doesn't nap anymore. Ideally we'd like him to be asleep before 8 since he doesn't nap. He doesn't always think so. We can take him to bed where he will just sit in bed with us awake for hours. He falls asleep anywhere from 7:30 (rare!) to 9:30pm, is awake between 7-8.
8 yo dd: bedtime 9ish, and wakes around 7am... often times earlier (doesn't seem to require as much sleep).
5 yo dd: bedtime around 8pm and wakes around 7:30am. but her schedule can vary depending on if it's a weekend or weekday (school). she requires more sleep than the 8 yo and will sleep in on weekends and could go to bed earlier on weeknights if we didn't have activities so late in the evening.
If any of my kids sleep past 7:15am, it usually means they are sick.
DD, 6 and ds1, 4, go to bed at 8. Dd is usually asleep by 8:15. Ds1 will either be asleep by 8:10, or he can still be awake at 10. He's always been a crappy sleeper.
Ds2, 19 months, is usually asleep by 9, but sometimes it's later.
Ds2 wakes up when dh's alarm goes off, so either 6:10 or 6:30. Dd and Ds1 almost always wake up within 10 minutes of dh turning on the kitchen light (which doesn't shine in their rooms at all.)
