    I consider my kids to be good sleepers - but they never sleep past 6am. If its 4:59am it I'm not happy but anything after 5:01am I'll accept how's that for logic?!?
    We've adjusted as a family and kids in bed by 6/6:30pm and we usually in bed by 9:30/10pm. Gone are the days watching DVDs till midnight. BUT means we are up and at em and make the most of the day.
    I've spent wayyy too many hours and lots of wasted tears trying to get them to sleep in...if they actually did I'm sure I'd be awake anyway!

    I have the same silly logic too! Once it hits 5am it's ok in my head. I usually ignore dd till then depending on how loud/ persistent she is. But I'm lying there awake listening to her and it never changes anything lol

    Yeah I've just accepted it as a fact of life... But others keep trying to give me advice when I tell them what time we get up - as if I haven't tried it all already!

    Eta: it's really not that bad in the grand scheme of things and it means I get lots done nice and early... But yeah it's the BEFORE 5am thing that bothers me

    I've been blessed with a fairly good sleeper when she's well, but she gets sick so often and sleeps so terribly. Last night she was awake for about 4 hours with croupe. The week before, it was a throat infection keeping her awake. She seems to be sick for at least 1 week every month.

    5 weeks old and waking constantly at night. I know it's normal but he's not waking to feed he wakes with a really sore belly and farting. If I could get rid of the fart pain I would get the best nights sleep! I've tried everything at the chemist but it doesn't work! Poor thing is in pain most nights

    This might sound silly but try cutting down the amount of dairy and green vegetables you eat.
    If it makes you gassy then cut it out.
    I had the same problem with ds1.
    Nothing else helped. Stupid gripe water. Infocol just made him scream.

    Hugs to you all. I was up at 4am today so I feel your pain.

    I've accepted it too, although starting school threw a spanner in the works! Everyone says how school would tire them out, they'll be asleep on the couch and start sleeping better... Well, no. They actually started sleeping less because I moved back their bedtime in the hopes of adjusting their wake time- why? They were getting so angry-tired at school! They're awake 4 hours before school even starts! So yeah they're tired, just not in the sane way I was assured they would be.

    I am so going to pay them back when they're teens!

    I don't know how much longer I can function on 2 hours of broken sleep a night. I'm so close to going insane!

    I know with kids in school this can be difficult, but why not a later bedtime to avoid the 5am wake up. I just have my 1 yr old, but she goes to bed maybe an hour before the adults do and I get a sleep in most days? It's the only way I get adequate sleep and function. Yes there is pretty much no couple time, but I kind of prefer 3 hrs more sleep.

    My kids are both early risers too. Particularly my DS who is usually up between 5am and 6am. Keeping him up later doesn't equal a sleep in her unfortunately. If he is up much later than his usual bed time he wakes up earlier.

    Yep I've already moved their bedtime back. The only result was my boys now get less sleep than before.
