Ds is 4 and he sometimes falls asleep on the lounge or floor while I'm making dinner. Tonight he was asleep at 5.15pm. I usually just put him to bed thinking he will wake if he is hungry but he does just sleep through as usual. With kindy and daycare I guess he's tired after being on the go all day. He's such a good eater so I don't worry about him starving. Does anyone else's child do this?

Does your 4yr old fall asleep before dinner?

Nope, not even after a 20km bike ride the other day.

My DD does sometimes. But for her to fall asleep it has to be a full on day with lots of activities and somedays if she is up really early she'll be asleep by 5.30. I leave her as well just to sleep through.
She was a terrible sleeper when she was a baby right up till she turned 3. So I am a big believer in never waking a sleeping child/baby.

My 5 year old DS does it constantly. He falls asleep wherever! He's even fallen asleep on top of the back section of the couch - how he didn't fall, I'll never figure out. On the floor, at the table... But that's just him

Occassionally he will if we have been super busy. School really takes it out of him these days and as he has been going to both before and after school care, by the time the weekend has rolled around he is stuffed from exhaustion but i usually try and avoid him sleeping that late in the afternoon as i would rather him go to bed early

Not at home, but if I am still out and about collecting/dropping off our older kids at 5pm or later, she will have a power nap in the car if it's been a busy day.

My dd is 4.5 and she normally falls asleep on the lounge after school approx 1-2 times a week. Sometimes school just wears her out and she needs that little extra sleep. She still goes to bed at 730 as usual on these days and falls asleep straight away. I'm guessing waking between 545 and 6 am every morning doesn't help

Yep, my sio has sensory processing issues and subsequently takes a long time to register hunger... He happily goes to bed with no dinner some days. Especially in a Kindy day where he had no nap

My daughters do sometimes but they are both much younger (2yo)
Once I found them snuggling under the coffee table fast asleep.
Theres no waking them. Only option is straight to bed.
