Synchronizing the boys’ sleeping hours

One of my biggest achievements since the arrival of Ayden is synchronizing the sleeping hours of both Ethan and Ayden at night. It was tough the first couple of months. Ethan would go to bed by 9pm while Ayden doesn’t sleep until at least 2-3am. Back then Darling blamed Ayden’s odd sleeping hours on my staying up late blogging while I was pregnant with Ayden because with Ethan, I had a very good habit of sleeping early as I was working hence Ethan’s better sleeping habit. 

I persevered and trained Ayden to sleep earlier, keeping him occupied during the late evening so he won’t fall into a deep nap that often sabotages his night sleep. It worked and Ayden sleeps a little earlier at 12 midnight. It became better gradually and he now sleeps at 10 to 11pm. Ethan sleeps at 10 to 11pm too once he started Primary One in the evening session. 

These days, both my boys sleep at 11pm the latest and wake up at 9am. Ayden sleeps through the night since 6mo so you can imagine my happiness! Can beranak again liddis! *LOUD THUD* Ok, that is Darling fainting… Ignore him. He’s just faking it hoping for a CPR :P

    Good for me. I had to adjust my own sleeping time when my girl was small…and often had to go with not-enough-sleep, no choice. But it was all worth it – nothing beats bringing up a child of one’s own, through thick or thin.
