my boys are 4 and 2. They typically wake up around 8 or so every morning, which is totally fine- then they take about 1-2 hour naps in the afternoon, and they're in bed by 9ish.
Lately they've been gettin all crazy. They aren't going to sleep until 10 or 11 (sometimes even later!!) and waking up betweene 4-6 am...and while my 2 year old still naps, my 4 year old rarely does. I wouldn't mind, but they've been excessively WHINEY all the time. When they wake up at 4 and 5 in the AM, I usually make them go back to bed. Sometimes they'll go back to sleep until 10 or 11 in the morning! I'm positive they aren't getting enough sleep! Suggestions?
Oh and just as a side note, they sleep in separate rooms. When they slept in the SAME room they would sleep, on average, 3 hours a night. It was awful!! They kept each other awake.
