    Ds1 turns 6 in August. He is in bed at 7:30, and is up between 6am and 7am.

    DS1 is up between 4/5. It is a pain because he either wakes his brother (shares a room), or is irritating to share a bed with if we put him in ours. We have tried everything over the years, and have no solutions. Will be very interested to read others ideas! It's def affecting him at school/home (especially on a day that he's started at 4am!)

    My boys go to bed at 7:30 and know they aren't allowed to be up before 6.

    Occasionally I hear them playing earlier than that.

    I know whoever wakes first immediately wakes the other- if they weren't twins I actually think they would have learned to sleep later by now.

    We tried a gro clock. They broke it. We tried a different version. They broke that, too. They really, really didn't like being told to go back to sleep

    DS goes to bed between 7:30 and 8pm, he's usually up between 5 and 6 am. It's exhausting having a child that only averages 9/9.5 hours sleep. Every. Single. Day. He's happy to get up when it's dark so I don't think block out blinds would work. Pretty sure he'd just ignore a grow clock. 😞

    We just started using a gro clock about 2 months ago. My daughter now sleeps from 630pm to 630am. Previously she was getting up at about 530am.

    If she stays in bed until the gro clock says it's time to get up, then she gets one of those chewy vitamins.

    The gro clock has worked really well for us. I have just changed the wake up time to 645am, and will eventually change it to 7am.
