Kate is killing me with these early mornings. She used to get up around 7:00, which was fine with me. Now she's up between 6:00 and 6:30. Not so nice when when I'm up with the baby during the night. She takes a 2-hour nap in the afternoon, occasionally 3 hours. She goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:00. So that's about 12 hours, total. Is that normal?
Last night she went down at 7:55 and got up 3 times, the last being at 9:15. I heard her at 4:00 coughing and she was up for the day at 6:25. I don't see how she's functioning. That just doesn't seem like enough sleep. I have tried putting her to bed earlier and later and she continues to get up early. Oh, and when she's getting up at 9:15 and I go to bed at 9:30 (to try to get in 8 hours myself) it makes for a very non-relaxing evening when that's what I need the most when there are 2 toddlers and a baby in the house! I am starting to get angry about this getting up several times at bedtime. How do you deal with that?
