Does anyone else have a toddler that likes to sleep in?

mine is 3 and she's still asleep at 10:30. She sleeps like this all the time and is usually in bed by 9:30. Sometimes u try to wake her up and she tells me she wants to sleep. Aren't most kids up at the crack of dawn?

  • My son is the same way.He would sleep all morning if I let him. We have to get up early and I usually have to get him dressed when he's asleep and then I wake him up to brush his teeth and he just says "it's too early". All this even when he's in bed by 8:00 p.m.

  • My son (who is nearly 17 now) was like that. You just did NOT want to wake him up because he would be soooo cranky. You just had to let him wake up on his own...and sometimes it wasn't till 10 or 11. I always put him to bed at a reasonable time. He just loved to sleep (and still does!). When he started kindergarten, he had half day in the afternoon. I let him sleep till 11 then woke him for a meal (lunch..burnch lol). He ate & went happily off to school.

  • My 4-year-old likes to sleep in. He has since he started sleeping thru the night. I just let him sleep until he decides to wake, unless we need to be some where. Trying to work on getting him used to getting up in the morning so he can go to kindergarten next year.

  • My almost 3 year old usually isn't up at the crack of dawn but once he's up he's up. There is no such thing as sleeping in! Hopefully that eventually changes lol.
