    LuLuLuLu, any changes to the sleep patterns at home?
    Hope it's improving!

    Our toddler is now getting a little bit better - when she wakes at 4:30 she wants to go out of the room and sleep on the couch - DH follows and they sleep again till 5:30, slightly more humane.
    We started a rewards chart (not my kind of thing but we needed to come to a compromise as a family - we couldn't have everyone suffering) and she did fantastic for a week in a row - then reverted to noisy wakings. So we just need to reiterate it all again so she understands the expectations.

    Have you tried something like that? Could it work for you?

    Hi BabushkaMum. Thanks for asking. No huge changes here but definitely heading in the right direction. The 4 yo isn't waking EVERY night now - maybe every second night, or probably one out of three he sleeps through. We have a reward chart and he gets a sticker if he stays in bed "until it's daytime on his (gro)clock".
    The baby still wakes at 5 :/

    My 4.5 year old gets up at 6am every morning, he goes to the toilet then comes out with his blanket and pillow and turns on the tv and watches it until 6:30 - 7am. He likes the quiet time without his brother.

    My 2 year old can wake up anywhere between 4am - 7 am if it is still dark out i can manage to resettle him and make him sleep in for another hour or two.

    Both have block out blinds in their rooms and are pretty good sleepers generally.

    I would hate to be up that early. I used to hate to be up during the night by myself knowing everyone is fast asleep. I cant imagine being up at that time everyday. I feel for you.

    Look after yourself
