Thomas has been waking earlier and earlier lately, and his mama is sleepy! It's feeling awfully familiar - Clara did the same thing. It got to the point where she was waking pretty regularly at something like 5 AM.
Normally, I'd force the issue (which means crying), but with the boys in the same room...I don't want to keep Ben up.
I was sitting on the couch like a zombie after getting Thomas up this morning, when a memory flashed through my sleep deprived brain like a ray of light. I'll do what I did with Clara! It taught her to sleep in, it involved minimal crying, and it's a fairly quiet process that might mean more sleep for Ben.
I also thought "I gotta tell people about that method - it worked GREAT!"
So I wrote all about it. If you have a little one who wakes up too early, give it a try and let me know how it works.
