    Yep I've already moved their bedtime back. The only result was my boys now get less sleep than before.

    I get this advice a lot (no offence I know you're trying to be helpful). When my patents babysit they keep my dd up till really late. I have tried it on a few occasions as well. The only thing this achieves is an over tired and cranky toddler the next day!
    The reason my dd goes to bed so early is because she wakes so early, not the other way around.

    I wish it worked like that for us. When DS1 and DS2 stay up later (6yrs and 4yrs) they are still up at 5 if not earlier. All I have achieved is cranky tired kids.

    Ds1 is 7 and goes to bed at 7.30pm. He is never up before 7 am. He has always been my dream sleeper. Ds2 is the worst. He is up late or at the same time and wakes every hour minimum. I have to get him up to do school drop off or he would sleep till 9 am

    Yes I can't compare as I only have 1. But I tried the 7-7.30am bedtime from about 2-5 mths and had struggled with an adult bedtime, then the night wake ups and then lack of sleep in. Then around 5 mths just made her bedtime later, and it's been the best move I made. I guess every child is different. If she stays up later then usual these days, like if we've gone out somewhere, she still wakes up the same time in the morning and is cranky, but by changing her bedtime completely at 5 mths of age, rather than a few one off late nights, then she changed her wake up time as well to afford me my lovely sleep in.

    I miss sleep. I'm going to try to focus on the fact that eventually she'll grow up and leave home. She'll have to let me sleep then.

    4.40am - 12 mth old DD had a feed, normally goes straight back to sleep, instead rolled around in her cot for a while, I patted for 5 mins and thought she was settling, but no, crying for a feed again. Come on already! You're a year old!
