My two year old used to sleep until 6 or 6:30 every morning, but the past two weeks has been getting up at 4:30 or 4, and he will not go back to sleep no matter what we try. We've got another baby on the way and would love to have his old sleep schedule back before there's a newborn to contend with in 3 months! My son goes to bed around 8 every night and falls asleep right away. He naps at the babysitter's house, so I don't have much control over nap time. He usually naps from 12:30 to 2:30. I've tried changing him, giving him some milk and some cuddles in the morning, and then putting him back to bed (used to work, not anymore) and I've tried leaving him to cry for a while to see if he'll fall back asleep, but I just can't handle the screaming after a few minutes. Please help...we're exhausted!
