Even if we say that the future belongs to those who get up early ... it's hard for parents to be woken every morning at the rooster!
What is the problem ?
- It's 5 or 6 in the morning and your child is calling, chouine, crying. At best, you hear him chirping in his bed. It's a little hungry? No never. At home, children are not undernourished. No need to give him an extra bottle or leave him a packet of cookies in his bed!
Who disturbs it?
- You. It's hard to get up so early! Lack of sleep tires, irritates, disrupts family life ... and the general mood!
He wakes up to sleep better
- Sometimes, around 5 or 6 o'clock in the morning, the children have a waking phase at night. Sleep is not linear: it is made of cycles. Your toddler can be at dawn, at the beginning of a cycle, so in light sleep phase. You think he's waking up because you hear him stir. In the night, or at dawn, the majority of toddlers open their eyes and go back to sleep. Parents do not notice it.
- What has to be done. Try to let him manage his alarm clock alone. Above all, do not go! He can very well learn to wait a little in his bed. Leave him alone, dream, chirp ... then fall back into the arms of Morpheus! Put in his bed one or two toys that he likes. It will occupy him.
He gets up early because he is sensitive to light
- It may be the day that rises that awakens your little sleeper. He may well imagine that it is time for him to get up too. It is therefore logical that he calls you.
- What has to be done. If you can not install shutters, dark and thick curtains will do the trick. You can also opt for blackout curtains.
