    Default What time...

    Does your 7 ( or there abouts) year old get to sleep at night and how many hours sleep do they get?

    My current 7 year old...bed at 7.30pm, asleep by 8pm...wakes between 6-7.30am depending on how big her week has been and how noisy her siblings are.

    However, her older sister at 7 - went to bed at 7, asleep by 8.30pm (but grumpy at 7pm so needed to go and rest and wind down, she always takes ages to go to sleep), and awake between 5-6am.

    Different kids, different sleep needs.

    My just turned 8 year old is inbed on school nights by 7.30pm and asleep by 7.35pm. Sleeps through till 6am when I wake him.

    School holidays are very relaxed he goes to bed by 10pm and gets up whenever he wakes. If we have something on the next day it is a 8pm bedtime.

    My 7 year old goes to bed between 8.30/9 and most nights goes to sleep around 9.30/10, although on a bad night it could be 11pm. She usually wakes during the night and sneaks into my bed, most mornings she does even remember it! She wakes in the morning anywhere between 6am and 8am.

    DS1 will be 7 in Feb and he's in bed at 7pm on school nights asleep by 7.30 and is woken up at 6.50 because he's on the bus at 7.30am.

    DD was similar at that age but never had to be woken. She's always been an early riser and needed less sleep than her brother.

    Dd7 has lights out at 8.30, rarely asleep before 9.30 (sigh) and i usually have to wake her at 8 for school. Weekends she might sleep until 8.30. It's always taken her about 45-60 mins to fall asleep, since birth.

    My Ds6 &1/2 goes to bed by 7pm and is out like a light. Gets up around 4.30-5 (aghh!) Nothing we've ever done has helped with the early rising :-( nowadays we put him to bed earlier when he's very tired because the later he is up at night the earlier he's up in the morning

    I have been an early riser from way back. Even as a teenager I'd be up by 7pm. I wake on my own between 4.30 and 5.30..and I go to bed between 9.30-11pm. My oldest is an early waker too...I don't expect she'll ever change.
    The good news is we do grow up and move out of home! I have memories of waking up and watching cartoons why I waited for someone else to wake up in the house.
