He didnít wake up last night! Now if we can just get him to sleep a bit later in the am. He wakes the same exact time every morning and only gets about 10 hours of sleep no naps and is active all day long doesnít stop at all. I still think heís overtired.

I agree. Might also be a matter of being overstimulated? Is he a Touchy? My firstborn was VERY Touchy, a totally quiet first A time helped re-set, among all the other things.

I would say heís a bit spirited and a bit grumpy. He always would sleep a good 12 hours at night would go to bed easily we didnít have to stay with him heíll wake in the morning well rested around seven 730 but that all changed once the clocks went back over a month ago. I still canít figure out why heís waking super early but following this form for all these years I feel like heís probably overtired from not getting enough sleep. He goes to preschool four days a week for four hours each day and in the afternoon we struggle heís wired and hyper and fresh.

One other thing that occurred to me: when you try to get him sleeping during the day, have you tried music or white noise? We found white noise REALLY helpful! (Actually it was a noise generator where we could select ocean, river/stream, or rain sounds; helped get her from one sleep cycle to the next.)

Might be worth a try, that and as much physical activity as you can manage for him when he's awake. Swimming ALWAYS meant better sleep for my two.

Heís doesnít have a day sleep. And yes at night we use a white noise machine. How do you get them to sleep later or reset them. Itís getting earlier today was 545 and I can not get him to go back to his room or bed.

Sorry, things have been hectic here so I've been AWOL...

Is there any way you can hold him back to sleep in his room when he wakes early? Like sit on a chair in the dark and just...sing a lullaby? Play soft music?

Have you tried pain meds? If so, any difference?

On the other hand, if he's waking that early anyway, maybe just let him sleep with you after hubby gets up for work? I'd try giving some pain meds when he wakes and snuggling, see what happens.
