    Ooh yep this is my kids to a tee! I have a 6 yr old and a 1 yr old. They are both up between 4.30 and 5.30 everyday. Every. Single. Day. I could count on one hand how many times my 6 yr old has slept in until 7am in his whole life. It just doesn't happen.

    My 1 yr old went to bed late last night (10pm, usually it is 6.30pm) as we were out to dinner. She woke at 5am this morning, had a 50 min nap today and was still powering on at 6pm...

    No unfortunately. Even after being up with ds all night when he has been ill i still haven't been afforded the chance for a sleep in. Just the luck of the draw i guess. Maybe one day......

    Default Anyone elses kids wake up stupidly early every single day?

    Good morning fellow early birds

    Vicpark, trust me, you've mentioned it, I've tried it.

    You know what worked for us? Me going to bed damn early, lots of caffeine and a nap. Accepting it instead of fighting it. Life became much easier then.

    As others have said though, it's not all bad. I leave for work just before 6, and I enjoy being able to say goodbye before I leave. And I do love my time alone in the evenings.

    Funnily enough only on work days!!! I would love for him to sleep in until his usual time (6.30-7am Thursday-Sunday) so I can get ready for work as he's usually so clingy in the morning. Work days are 5am for some reason!!! He goes to daycare too so I don't mind when he's up early so we can be out the door just before 7

    That's truly not fair on you. Your dp is being an @ssh@t. It's not luck of the draw when someone is being obnoxious intentionally.

    I try to think of the positives too. Grocery shopping at 7am when the supermarkets are pretty empty for example, kids are at their best and there are hardly any other people around.

    We can also get out to parks really early, avoid very hot sun easily in warmer months etc

I'm not so worried about my sleep, or even theirs since they seem happy enough... I'm more concerned about them waking the baby! But hopefully we've managed to explain quiet mornings and keeping their play to the lounge room by Dec when Bub is due
    I had the same worry before my baby came along.

    Unfortunately they do wake him up but on the plus side, he's 10 months now and he now has the same bedtime as older two so they're all in the same night routine.
