Has anyone experienced a previously good sleep routine to a bad one after your toddler went from cot to bed?
Why do people always say or assume a later bedtime will result in a later wake time in the morning? This simply isn't true. My toddler was asleep by 6.30 a year ago but now I'm lucky if he's asleep by 8.30pm. He no longer wakes at 6am, it's 5am these days. He is clearly still tired in the morning but even when I put him back in his room he won't go back to sleep, just plays with his toys. By 9.30-10am he is rubbing his eyes, and struggling.
Is there anything I can do to change his routine? I would live with it except I know he's not getting enough sleep. I think some mornings he wakes even earlier than 5... When it's no longer daylight saving that will be 4am! It's nuts!
Also, I've cut back his day sleeps to no longer than 1.5 hrs.
