    Default How old are your children and what time do they wake up?

    DD1 is 7 years old. She goes to bed at 8 and wakes up around 6 but has to stay in bed until 6:30.

    DS is 5 and just started school. He goes to bed between 7:30/8 and usually wakes at 6. Sometimes he wakes at 5/5:30 to do a poo but he goes back to bed until 6:30

    DD2 is 3 and was sleeping 7/7:30-7:30/8:30 with no day sleep but she moved to a bed about a month ago and it's been a disaster. She doesn't fall to sleep until 9pm some nights then up at 6. Of course if this happens then she sleeps at daycare which perpetuates the problem. I get her back into routine then she sleeps at daycare. I know it's a phase and she will eventually just stay in bed at bedtime but it's really annoying.

    Dd is 6yo and ds almost 5yo.
    Both are in bed around 8.30 and wake up between 6-6.30

    If it's the weekend dd sometimes sleeps in to 7 am but ds will usually wake at 6.30

    DD (3.5) often wakes up about 6:30, but knows she's expected to stay in bed (or go to the toilet and go back to bed) until 7 - sun up on the gro clock - otherwise mummy will be very cranky. Goes to bed 7-7:30 (asleep by 7:30-8 generally), and half the Tim has a nap of maybe 49 minutes to an hour.

    DS is 9 months, so...sleep is all kinds of fun.

    My 4yo goes to bed at 7:30pm, awake is somewhere between 5 and 6:30am. She will usually watch TV or do something quietly in her room with her 6yo brother until I get up at 6:30am. I think you've had it good! You'll probably need her to be getting up that bit earlier next year to get to school on time 😊

    Dd is 4 (today!) and wakes around 7-7:30 on non kindy days. Kindy mornings I wake her at 6:30.

    Ds is 17mths and wakes around 7am. he still has a 2.5-3hr nap each afternoon

    Anything earlier than 6:30 wake-up for either is very unusual. They are in bed at 6:30 (ds) & 7pm (dd) every night.

    If dd had only 9.5hrs sleep, she would be a mess. She regularly naps in the car on the way home from kindy so even her 12hrs isn't enough sometimes

    I'm having the opposite prob getting them too sleep! Which has never been an issue previously!

    Ds- 2 yrs used to sleep 7-7

    Now it's more like 9-7
    And a nap of 1.5-2 hours depending

    DD almost 3 in April 9-6:30 same nap time too.

    I'm soo over putting them to bed they both take forever 😱 (we just ditched the dummies so I think that's why!

    My youngest just turned 4 and possibly on the side of oversleeping. She'll go to bed at 7pm and I'll have to wake her up for breaky and the school run around 745am. I've been letting bed time slide lately just with daylight savings ending soon.

    I have always wished for one of those mythical children that sleep until 7 or beyond!

    DS1 is 6. He wakes at 5.30 most days but I do believe if he didn't hVr younger siblings he would be starting to naturally wake later now. On the mornings I manage to keep dd super quiet ds1 has occasionally stayed in bed until 6.30.

    Dd is 2. She wakes between 5 and 5.30 every day.

    Ds2 is 4 months. He usually wakes around 6am.
