What would you do?
Your LO (4.5 years old) normally goes to bed between 7.15-7.45pm, but after a week of being unwell and a big day at grandma's house he/she falls asleep on the couch at 5.30pm! (They flake it as soon as they lye down).
a) Wake them up and try keep them up a little longer (maybe until around 6.30/7pm).
b) Take them straight to bed and hope they sleep in until their normal time in the morning

Straight to bed or woken up?

My 4yo ds is the biggest grouch if you wake him up and every so often will fall asleep during this time and sleeps right through. If he wakes I give him his dinner if before 9pm bath and read him a story then back to sleep after usually an hour after waking.

DS did this once and I unfortunately chose A. It threw his WHOLE night out and we had him awake from like midnight to 3am. Absolute disaster.
If my 2 year old falls asleep in the car at that time I wake her when we get home, then put her to bed a little bit later. I treat the late sleep as a nap, not as the start of the long night time sleep.

Straight to bed. Even a short nap late in the day resets my kids and they then are awake until 10.30pm.
I've put DD to bed a few times this early over the years. Sometimes she sleeps right through, sometimes wakes at 3am and eats some crackers or a sandwich then back to sleep. She's always been a good night sleeper though.

Straight to bed - I wouldn't be messing with a sleeping toddler even if it meant an early start - better than a late night.

Yep I'd go straight to bed too, especially it they've been sick

I'm feeding them well, keeping them warm and lots of love, but nothing seems to keep the bugs away.

Well it ended up being a good night. Ds woke at around 11pm coughing a lot, so I gave him his asthma pump, penicillin and some water.
Then he slept next to me in my bed until 7am!
