Re: To disturb or not to disturb LO in the morning

No, let him be that's his happy waking up time. My oldest DS did that as a baby, laughing and talking to himself. I used to lay there and listen to him because it was so cute. DS2 (6yrs) did and still does play silently for a good 15min alone before he's ready to come out of the bedroom. Sometimes it really throws his day off not to be able to adjust to being awake without interruption and he gets cranky. He's like me, he needs some quiet time without anyone rushing him into the routine. He would let you know for sure if he wasn't content. I don't think it's harmful at all, to the contrary really.

nak

LOL as long as they are happy, there is no time limit in the crib(in my house)! I get them when they start to fuss or it's time for another activity! I need "me" time for my sanity and to get things done around the house!

It wouldn't be fair if he were crying or otherwise letting you know he wanted you or to be out of the crib. Sounds like he's happy and content and it's okay to leave him at least long enough to get ready. I don't see any need to disturb him. My first daughter would wake up and play happily in the bed next to me a lot of mornings, I caught an extra 30 minutes of sleep like that a lot. I sure needed it LOL

Re: To disturb or not to disturb LO in the morning

We leave our 1 year old in her crib until we are ready for her. Unless she needs us right then she perfectly happy in there snuggling with her stuffed animals and "talking" to her older sister (they share a room but B usually sleeps through M talking to her ).

When Fiona and Eric did that, I just let them do their thing until they asked to get out. Colleen was never in a crib, so I didn't do that with her. LOL
