Bedtime Modification: Night 2

Last night was a success, freaking finally! We had Brandt in bed early and he fell asleep by 7:30 which is a bit earlier than his usual 7:45. HE SLEPT ALL NIGHT AND DIDN'T WAKE UP UNTIL 5:45 this morning! I woke up before him expecting him to wake up, but it was nice to at least lay in bed half asleep until he got up.

I think we might continue the 7:30 bedtime for a few days and then try 7:15. Although Joe might only be on board with 7:30 and not 7:15. We'll see. Last night was wonderful.

That's awesome! When Liam was about 2 I made a rule that if it was dark outside we stayed in bed...I didn't care if he was awake but he had to stay in bed. It's great in the winter but not so much now when the sun is starting to rise earlier and earlier! Also, as for nap time, even now we make Liam at least "rest" in his bed for an hour or so. He's not allowed to get up but will watch a movie or something.

Hope it continues to work for you!
