Bedtime question help!

Momof1 - posted on 07/18/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son is just over 2 and a half. He normally sleeps from 9:00 to 8:00. I am starting him with a babysitter for two days a week. I'll be waking him up at 6:00 AM on those two days, so I am just wondering if I will be putting him to bed 2 hours or so earlier? That may sound like a stupid and obvious question, but I'd just like to see what other parents do in this situation. Also if I would be putting him to bed at 6 or 7, then he would barely see Dada when he got home from work. Also will he then wake up early on the days he does not have to? Thanks in advance.

You may have to alter your routine completely on this one. If you are waking him he will still be tired and may need a sleep at lunch time again, even if he has not had one for a while or you will have to try and keep him awake until bedtime. Although this is going to make him very grouchy. Bring your bedtime forward to 6.30-7pm and see what happends. The only problem you have is this will be his normal wake up time. 6am on a Sunday is not a nice time to start the day. Good luck!
