Up until now my five year old (six this weekend) has been sharing a bedtime and wake up time with his younger brother who is 2.5. According to my google searches, ds1 needs about 10-12 hours a night where as ds2 needs 12-14. Neither of them nap. They have generally been getting about 11-11.5 a night. They go to sleep about 6:30-7pm and wake (no matter what!) by 6am. They will not sleep in in the morning. Last night about 7:30pm I snuck into their room to get something and ds1 was wide awake and asked me to stop turning on lights in the hall. That made me wonder how long the poor kid is laying there awake before he falls asleep. Part of me says, don't rock the boat b/c he hasn't complained about it really. But the other part of me knows that eventually he will probably stay up a bit later and ds2 will have to go to bed on his own for an hour or so. Any thoughts? How much sleep is your six year old getting a night?
