I'm hoping that some of you with kids older than 18 months will respond to this post because I'm wondering if I'm alone in this crazy twist of a schedule.
Even since the boys turned 18 months, their sleep schedule has totally shifted. They used to go to bed between 7-7:15pm, wake up between 7:30-8am and nap from 1-2:30. Now, they aren't even remotely tired until 7:30-8pm, but they are waking at 6:45am on the nose and napping from 1-3:30 or 4pm (sometimes even later!). I really can't complain about waking up 45 minutes early if they are going to give me an extra 1-1.5 hours of free time in the afternoon, but they do seem to be a little crankier in the mornings than they ever were before. They are up the second the sun rises! Will they go back to sleeping later once daylight savings time hits this weekend?
Two questions: 1) How are you handling Daylight Savings Time? 2) Did your kids go through a sleep shift at any point and what was it?
