    Yes, all early risers here, since birth, it seems. It is always between 5 and 6- DS2 sometimes earlier if he goes to the toilet. I don't mind, we are up and out of the house early for work. We still stick to a 6-630 bedtime, even for DS1 who is about to turn 9. A little more flexible on weekends, but not much, and not often. It works well for us. My children really suffer if they don't get enough sleep, so I just have to stick with that early bedtime. they go straight to sleep.

    I thought DS was an early riser until I read this thread lol he's in bed by 7:30pm and up at 7:30am, but this morning he didn't wake until 9am which NEVER happens!!
    All of my mummy friends boast about their bubs sleeping until at least 9am so I always thought DS was an early riser lol
    Though he does wake in the night for boob lol

    Omgoodness yes. One day at his adopted nanas place, he slept til 9am. You freaking kidding me. 9am. That was a joke. It would be a miracle if he ever does that for me

    Yep. My 4 are all early risers, always have been. They are up between 5am-6am every.single.day. I, however, do not get up until 7am. They're all old enough (8, 7, 5 and 3yo) that they just get up, turn on the TV and quietly watch cartoons or on their game things until I get up.

    As much as it would be nice to have them sleep a little later, I honestly would much prefer them getting up and ready to go nice and early than having to drag them out of bed and hassle them to get up and ready. Waking up is always easier when it's on your own terms and not because of someone else/an alarm.

    But, their early rising is why they go to bed early, which is also a bonus in my eyes!

    I tried both the Gro Clock and an OK to wake clock with my boys. They tampered with them until they broke. (I couldn't put them out of reach- rental house so no shelving)

    As much as I would love a sleep in I actually don't mind early wakes either. Yes, it definitely means early to bed (7:30 for boys, 7 for DD) and it also means I have a legit excuse to nap later in the day

    Ds is normally awake between 4 and 530am every day. Makes no difference what time he goes to bed. I tend to head to the spare bed or couch with him for cuddles and quiet play at that time of the day. Dp cracks it if he is woken early by ds. 6am is a sleep in for me

    It makes no difference if they go to bed at 7, 8, 9 or 10pm. Regardless, they are up at the same time. It matters not if the little one does or does not have a day nap. He's up at 4:30, regardless. Winter, Summer, Rain, Dark or Sunny. That's when they get up ready to face the day.

    Am I the only one? I keep seeing people who have to wake their kids up to get them to kindy/school etc, and I think omg I wish. My kids have been up for hours already! I wish I could get them to sleep later.
    Yes. My 3 are the same. It is so hard. No advice but you're not alone!

    You don't ever get a sleep in? We used to take turns when there was just one and he was getting up super early. Now days he sleeps til 7 and I'm up to the baby at night, so DH usually lets me sleep til the baby wants food lol
