    Default Parents of early risers- do you go back sleep when they do?

    DD has started waking up at 5:30am for the day (used to always be around around 7am-9). Even though it's only a couple of hours difference to her old waking times, I'm finding myself exhausted by late afternoon now. I'm going to have to start going bed much earlier I think as I'm finding it hard to adjust.
    But to those of you who have the opportunity, do you nap or go back to bed when your LO does? DD went back down at 7:30am and will probably sleep for an hour or two.. I should have joined her, but I find it hard to go back to sleep once I'm up for day.
    What do others do?

    I'm the same. DD is 17mths and is getting up at 5:30, I find it hard because it's still dark!!!

    I work from home so I work whilst she has her day sleep, but would love to have a nap at 3..... It's never going to happen, but I daydream about it!

    I'm not a day sleeper though, I find it hard to switch off.

    Just wanted to say I understand!!!

    My DS is 17 months old, and was sleeping til 7 but has started waking at 5:30*again*

    i resettle until he gets the idea I'm not getting him up, sometimes that can take half an hour of me going in and shushing hi, laying him down,,giving him his dummy and saying night night

    i ALWAYS have a nap when he goes down for his at 12:30ish

    I don't always sleep but I always lay down, he's full on and we don't do TV so I don't get much break from him so I'm always knackered!

    DD is almost 2, she wakes most mornings at 6am, sometimes earlier. On work days I have to get up at 6 anyway, but on other days I pop her in bed with me and she watches wiggles on the iPad while I snooze! I can't do day naps, they make me feel worse, and I usually study while DD has her day nap.

    My 10 month old ds decided 0415 was a perfect time to wake for the day this morning. Usually it's 0500. I always go back to bed even if I can't sleep. I'm currently waiting for him to tire out so I can crawl back in!
