Teach Your Child To Sleep In

Oh, Yawn!

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.  

Not.  Good.

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.

And I'm needing a nap myself.

Annabelle woke up at 6am — screaming "I WANT OUT! I WET!"

I'll go read your article now.

Must be something in the air. Amy woke up at 4:45 with a bloody nose and never went back to sleep.
