I know we just recently had a naptime and bedtime thread going, so I know that most of our snow peas are still napping, but I'm afraid it may be time to get rid of Eli's nap, even though he seems to really need it still!
I cannot get this kid to sleep past 6 am. No matter what time he goes to bed, he's up at 6 am. Sometimes earlier. Yesterday it was 5:15 am! If he goes to bed at 8 pm, he gets up at 6 am. If he goes to bed at 11 pm, he gets up at 6 am. :eek: I think the latest he has ever slept in is 7 am.
I think I just have an early riser on my hands, but I'd love to get an extra 30-60 minutes in the morning!
Eli is still napping pretty much every day. Lately he has been making a HUGE fuss about naptime and bedtime, crying and wailing and saying NO! But even when he freaks out about naptime, he is fast asleep within 10 minutes. And then he sleeps for 2-3 hours, so I KNOW he is tired. On the days that he does not nap, he becomes an absolute BEAR around 5 pm and ends up going to bed super early (like 6:30 pm) and still gets up early in the morning.
Anyone else have a kid who just refuses to sleep in no matter what?
With baby #3 coming in 3 months, I'm just dreading the early mornings! I'll have likely been up most of the night with a newborn, and Eli will be climbing in to bed with us at 5:30 am! I don't think I can handle that! Ella sleeps until 7-8 in the mornings, so I just don't know what to do with my early riser!
I think I will lose my sanity if I lose Eli's nap. Those 2 hours are the most precious of my day!
