My boys have recently started getting up around 5:30 (even just 30 minutes is more tolerable for all). In Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Child, the dr suggests actually putting them down earlier in order to get a better night sleep. But, the boys already go down at 7 and they do STTN.
They start off around 5:30 chatting and then starts the crying and even if they wanted to go back to sleep, they're brother is in their going crazy. But, when I get them up, they're SOOOO tired (yawning, rubbing eyes). I think I could give them a bottle and they'd go right back to sleep but I feel like that's going backwards.
We tried a little earlier bedtime tonight so we'll see if that makes a difference.
Any words of advice?
