I have 2 toddlers. 3 and 18 months.
Both in bed at 6:30. 3yr old sleeps till 6:30. 18mth old sleeps until anywhere between 6-8:30! It's a mystery every morning.
Both sleep for 2 hours during the day
DD is 22 months. Bedtime routine starts at 6. Bath, pj's, bottle, story and bed by 7. She falls asleep usually within half an hour and wakes up at 7am.
Dd has dinner at 5 bath at 530 is down most nights by 7 and up by 530/6.
DD1 has a bath at 6.30 and milk/cuddles till she falls asleep between 7-8pm. Baths occ take 30-45min if she is chirpy and playing. We wake her up around 6am in winter and 5.30in summer. She sleeps for 2hrs in winter and 2.5-3hrs in summer during the day. DD1 is 2
Lysander's just turned 2. He goes to bed between 6:30 and 7 (depending on how long his day nap was) and wakes around 6am.
Wow everyone's toddlers seem to be going to bed between the 6 and 7.30 mark and sleeping thru till around 6-6.30 my son constantly wakes during the night it seems for no particular reason and then still wakes up so early between 4.30 and 5.30 only occasionaly 6 not often at all can anyone tell me what i should be doing different maybe put him to bed earlier could he be disrupted during the night because he is over tired?
Lysander is the only one of my 5 kids to sleep till 6am.. ALL the other 4 woke between 4:30-5. They all had the same bedtime, same routine, same everything... I think some kids just sleep more!
As for the waking, there are many different reasons that a little person wakes at night. Julian was our constant waker.... up to 6 times a night, so we co-slept and that solved that problem... even now we usually wake up with him and Gabriel in bed with us. I'm pretty sure that once Lysander is out of his cot he'll be in with us too (hence prepping up and buying a new spare bed!) Lysander doesn't wake, and if he does he's happy to have a bottle of milk and go back to sleep... but like I said, he just likes sleep!
Is co-sleeping an option for you?
DS is 15 months.
He goes to bed at 8:30, asleep within ten minutes.
Wakes up at 9am.
Naps from 1pm till around 5pm.
Such a good sleeper!
DD is 2 and a half and she's in bed by 7pm, shower/bath starts at 6.30 and she's still having a bottle but it's all done and tucked in by 7.
