    8 and 9 yr olds we still try to implement 630 to 6am. Sometimes it takes til 7 for them to fall asleep. A bit of flexibility on weekends or if there is an activity on. 3.5 yr old goes at 645 and right to sleep til about 615. I sleep roughly 845 or 9 til 530 or 6 lol.

    Both my kids get out of bed at 6am as they aren't allowed up before then. DS (3) usually goes to bed at 6pm if he hasn't had a day nap. DD (almost 6) goes at 7.30 and is awake but quiet anywhere from 5-5.30am. She is a really restless sleeper though and is often awake multiple times a night so is always tired.

    My DD is 3. She Wakes at stupid o'clock.
    Which loosely translates to sometime between 430 and 6am...today it was 530...
    So I go downstairs. .put on netflix and lie on the couch while she's watches tv.
    Nothing I've done to get her to sleep in longer works.
    She goes to bed at 7-730pm.

    My 5 year old wakes up between 7-8am usually.

    Occasionally earlier, and sometimes he and DH sleep in close to 9:00am if DH has worked the night before and they're both tired.

    Default How old are your children and what time do they wake up?

    I have 3.. 6, 4 & 2

    Everyone used to wake up at 7 and go to bed by 730.


    Since we've moved house, that's gone out the window.

    6&4 year olds are in bed around 8 and up between 6-630, which is fine and I can deal with that.

    But the 2yo won't fall asleep till after 930 and is up at 7. That drives me insane. Absolutely hate it.

    Hopefully the cooler weather and shorter days coming up help him sleep longer. Fingers crossed.

    ETA: the 4yo is currently very obsessed with me, and he has remarkable stamina. He won't go to bed unless I'm there with him, so if I'm busy trying to get Bub to bed, he will stay up with me. He could last till 1030 if he had to.

    Almost 9yrs old and wakes between 5 and 5:30am daily. Usually in bed at 7:30 apart from the weekends which he has free range on time. Doesn't matter what time he goes to bed at nightnight always up early.

    My nearly 3 year old gets out of bed at 6am. He's not allowed out before his sleep clock wakes up at that time and I'm sure he's awake earlier. It's like clock work... He walks into our room at 6am every single morning.

    He goes to bed between 7-7.30 and is asleep by 8. Normally has a 1-3 hour nap during the day depending on how well he settles.

    @A-Squared. Why don't you embrace that extra hour with your dd? Have a mummy-daughter breakfast date at home? Get a fancy tea set and have a cuppa with her.

    Or go for a morning walk with her? Or even just laze on the couch with her reading books.

    Make it your special time with her.

    DD is 3 weeks, so I won't include her (but she doesn't really get up up until 8/9am).

    DSS- I swear he doesn't actually sleep at all... He is frequently awake when I get up to put DD's nappies in the bin at 5am!

    DSD- would sleep ALL day if you let her, but is usually woken by DSS by 6.30/7am.

    Both go to bed at 8.30pm, and are asleep within 15 minutes.
    DD goes down properly at 9.30pm with us.
