Yes. I no longer set alarms for anything but laundry.
Yep both my kids are a strict 4:30 am wake up … both kids 😱🤯
Yup. Haven’t set an alarm for 17wks 😴 No need when you’re being woken up often and in advance of whatever you need to do.
My 11 month old has been doing this really cute screech sound every morning at 5. Sometimes she lets us sleep in to 6:30 though before she starts the screech scream!
My 6 month old has consistently gotten bedtime sleepy around 8-8:30pm and wakes up at 8-8:30am since around 3 months. My mind is wired to wake up at that time go matter when I sleep. It’s getting exhausting bc I rebel against myself and won’t sleep until like 4am! 😅
So true. Before I had kids I remember I was complaining to my therapist about having trouble waking up in the morning, and she offered to give me an alarm clock she had that would jump off your nightstand and run around the room. She was like “I used to need it but now I have kids.”
This is a perk in my opinion! I don’t start work til 12 so when kiddo wakes up at 8 or 9, we start the day! No alarm needed at all.
I felt this so hard! I was up with baby at 430 to 530. For the life of me, I couldn’t go back to sleep until about 630. AND THEN MY HUSBAND’S ALARM WENT OFF! Needless to say, I couldn’t fall back asleep. He doesn’t even have work right now…he’s on vacation 😭
Too true. I haven’t had to set an alarm since my son was born (13 months). He’s so reliable I haven’t overslept or been late to work once!
My four month old feeds almost on the clock since she was born at 1am, 4am, & 8am.
The sound of my toddler’s bedroom door is an instant wake up. I just wish he would wake up consistently – 8am the other day and 4am today. At least he understands that “it’s dark outside” means he needs to lay down and sleep when he comes to visit me.
This is so accurate I just had to comment. I have realized for awhile that my son (23m) can wake me up from a dead sleep without even trying (he is in his own room, with a white noise machine on, and his door closed, across the hall). To the point that sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night I just listen for a moment (is he talking in his sleep? crying? coughing?, etc.)
This morning I woke up at 3:50 and I just knew. 3:53 boom, crying (pretty out of character for him normally). Makes me wonder if we’re just sensitive to the same sounds of the house or if I am just on that same wave length when he wakes up, I do too.
