16 month lo waking up earlier in am and cranky by lunch
« on: November 30, 2017, 17:14:11 pm »
My 16 mo lo has started waking earlier in the am. His schedule is up around 645 nap 12-2 bedtime around 7/730 depending on his nap. Hes got two molars cutting through also. This week some days his naps are only 1.5 when they are usually 2 + and hes waking earlier Im not even sure what time as he always plays quietly but the earlier I wake I notice hes up already and not as happy to wait.  The nap time has to be 12 for now with older childs schedule. But Im also noticing hes really cranky by lunch time not eating well and real fussy getting a new diaper and going down for nap. Once hes in crib he passes out! Its almost like hes ot!  Cant figure it out.

I think you are right. Hes all over the place. Some days up at 6 am some after 7. Naptime some days hes taking a while to fall asleep too. Im sure los his age are napping later but 12-2 works best for our family with the older ones school schedule so Im trying to keep him there as long as I can.  Hes still going to sleep around 7/730. I assume when the nap gets pushed later hell be up later?

He may just keep 12-2 and then go 12.30-2 when he needs less. My nearly 2 year old goes 12.30/2.15, 2.30 as we have school pick up at 3 and it doesnt affect his wake up.
