Re: Bedtimes and Wake-up Times
Putting a child in bed earlier won't make them stay in bed longer in the AM, unless they are laying in bed without sleeping.
I put both my boys down between 8-8:30. The two year old usually falls asleep pretty quick. The 4 year old almost always stays awake in bed for about an hour. The 2 year old wakes up about 7:00 and the 4 year old wakes up about 8:00. On the days my 4 year old falls asleep quickly (not often, LOL!), he wakes up with the littlest.
How long they are sleeping on naps makes a difference too.
