Does anyone else have a child who has an internal clock that makes him/her wake up at a certain time no matter what time they fall asleep at night?
Or does anyone have a child who at 3 slept less than 12 hours at night (and didn't nap)?
I don't know if I'm getting my DS to bed too late but he's still wanting to wake up at the same time every morning anyway - or - if he's in a transition period where he is needing less than his previously-normal 12 hours. He has begun having nights where he sleeps 11 hours instead (and even a few at 10 1/2 hours).
If you have a child that wakes up at the same time no matter what is there a way to change that or do you just change bedtime to get the right amount of sleep in?
(By the way he hasn't napped in a year and has done better without them. Naps are not something I want to try to reintroduce at this stage. I'd rather work on nighttime sleep since he does better that way.)
