It seems that no matter what we do ds, 2.5, wakes up at about 4 am every morning raring to go. He goes to bed between 8 and 9. He is pleasant and energetic when he wakes up. He is usually hungry, but giving him a snack in bed isn't helping to get him back to sleep. He used to sleep until around 7, but for over a month now, around 4 am he is wide awake. If we keep trying to get him back to sleep, usually around 6 or 7 I can get him back down for another hour or so. From what I have read this isn't really enough sleep for a kiddo his age. And quite honestly, we aren't that fond of waking at 4 am every morning. Any thoughts or suggestions?
