DS's schedule has always been too early, but now with the time change, it's REALLY too early. He wakes up between 4:30 and 5, and nothing we do will get him to go back to sleep. So his nap is too early, so he goes to bed too early. When we put him to bed later, he still wakes up at the same time, but tired and grumpy.


He's not getting to see DH much because he's going to bed too early and we're all exhausted because he's waking up too early.




(He's 20 months old)

WE are in the "same boat".....maybe trying to change sleep time little by little? Time change is just dumb!!!! I don't get. Even for me it is hard.

Same boat here as well...with our little guy getting up at 4:45am two days running.  And, since we've been pushing bedtime to the "new" time that means he's running about an hour short on night sleep and is being a total bear during the day.  


Any ideas?

We are there too.  E's been up at 5:15am three days now, and we need SLEEP!  

He gets up, crawls out of bed, and gets the ball popper toy going.  loud.

Same here.  Early mornings (4:30 - 5) and overtired, even by earlier-than-usual nap time = 1.5 hours spent getting her to sleep for nap.  Argh.

Ugh, I just hate the time changes!  My ds has always been an early riser, but 5 am is just too early to deal with.  He hasn't really been going to bed any earlier and is just plain cranky most of the time.  Here's to hoping our little ones adjust soon!
