    Vp I do SOS and with 3 boys that morning sleep just has to happen in the pram or car.

    I think for us ds3 will work better on a 630-630 routine rather than 7-7... Just gives me half an hour to BF before the other 2 wake up. Then 830 we're in the car and on our way to school. It also means if I've got to go shops etc I can be home in time for ds2 to have his nap.

    Today I've done 7-7 and I'm still walking around the shops waiting for ds2 to wake up and then go straight to school pick up for ds1.

    HTH

    Dh and I do everything the night before together... i.e., give them a good wash, pack lunches, school bags, set out clothes, pack the car etc.
    All I do in the morning when I get up (dh has already left for work) is feed kids breakfast and let them finish while I shower and dress... put their clothes on, wash faces, brush hair and teeth (we all do it together), grab lunches from the fridge and out the door we go. It takes me just over an hour.

    When the kids were babies it was a little harder but we pretty much did the same thing except I used to plonk them both in high chairs and wheel the high chairs around with me... in the bathroom, kitchen etc.

    Do as much as you can the night before while dh is at home to help, including packing the car.

    Can the 9am sleep be in the car on the way home? or if daycare is close in the pram while you walk home?

    Only during the week usually. FOB takes DD to his place on the weekend and I get a sleep in if I'm on close or I go to sleep earlier if I'm on open and recharge. But yes, I can function on 4 hours or less a night. I need a bit more now since I had DD but it used to be I'd barely sleep then one day my brain would go "OI! YOU!" And I'd pass out for 12-14 hours.

    I'm another who prepares as much as possible the night before. I don't function well in the morning so it's a must.

    Although easier, it's not necessary. I used to just put dd1 down in the bassinet then carry her to the car when we were leaving, but she would stay asleep when I moved her. We never pulled the capsule out of the car with her.

    It's definitely easier, I have a pile for dd1 (nappy, clothes, hair brush, shoes etc.) and a pile for dd2.

    Just about this bit, maybe get dome colourful boxes from the reject shop and put DS1s clothes in them for each day of the week, including a wash cloth and little towel for his face, etc?? Or (I like this idea, saw it on pinterest) get a set of white drawers, paint the days of the week on them and have the clothes there (If your DS is old enough to get his own clothes, can't remember if you ever said hoe old he is).

    @VicPark does your childcare not provide DS1 breakfast? I know I only have DS, but if he doesn't wake up early enough for me to get him to cc between 7 and 7.30 (brekky hours) then it's chaos.

    Could you maybe do that morning feed in a sling or carrier so you can get things done while feeding.
