Is it possible or does a beeping thermometer tempt a toddler out of sleep? DD wakes about 5, and then again at 7, but sometimes frequently in between. Does it really make a difference if I temp at 5, having had pretty solid sleep until then, or at 7 with broken sleep? I never really looked at the difference with I temp'ed before DD. Any family bed/temping hints I should know about?

The key is consistency. I usually drink a huge glass of water before I go to bed, so I will wake up after 4 hours needing to pee. I temp before I get out of bed, and it usually doesn't wake DD up, unless she's going to wake up anyway. If she wakes up, I latch her on after I stick the therm in my mouth and try not to move around too much.
The main rules are, temp after at least three hours of sleep in a row, don't get up before you temp, don't say anything before you temp. And whatever works for you, make sure you do it the same way every morning.
