So Alex is now going down to sleep much better after implementing a bedtime routine except his bedtime is just getting really early. Tonight, he's out cold at 6:10pm. Is there a way to bump this up naturally to around 6:30-7pm or should we just leave it be? He's up at 5am every morning and with the time change coming soon, he'll be at a 5pm-4am schedule!!! That's a little much eh Ideas?
Ive had and still am having so much trouble with kents sleeping routine.
But as it is at the moment he goes to bed at around 8:30 and then will wake up at around 10. Then will wake up at around 12, 2, 4,6.
Trust me i love this routine. He for the last 4 months has been waking up every single hour of the night.
Anyways. Once he wakes up at 7 in the morning he will stay awake for an hour and then go back to bed for an hour. Then he will have a nap around noon and then afternoon and then it starts all over again.
Does your LO have a routine in the day?
I know Kent is older then your LO but ive found that the routine in the day is a huge part of the night time routine.
Like kent would be super grumpy in the day and then have a bad night etc.
Luckily now he is starting to get into a routine.
Do you do anything in perticualr before LO goes down to bed?
Maybe move it by 10 mins every other night that wayLO gets used to it.
Do you put him to sleep awake to self settle, or do you rock him to sleep? If you put him awake I'd just keep him busy a bit longer....Maybe a nap around 4-4:30pm for one sleep cycle, so until around 5-5:15pm, so he can manage a little longer before wanting to sleep again.
