Do I let her sleep? LRX 3 kids; Alaska 28050 posts

My 4 year old had a major melt down and when she got sent to her room fell asleep at 5:30. We skipped nap today because I had errands and usual bedtime is 8pm. She hasn't eaten dinner yet. Should I wake her up and risk her being up late or let her sleep and have her wake up early?

I'd wake her up and let her eat dinner. If she wakes up early, it's going to be when you go to bed (always happens that way lol) and she'll be hungry. But that's just my opinion.

I'd wake her up. I don't know how your DD is, but when mine goes to sleep that early she'll usually wake up at around 4 - 5 am. That's too damn early. At least for me. :lol:

This, just happening now with LO. He is still tired for bedtime.

I've never had this happen before! It's weird... I get up at 6:30am... I wonder if she'll just sleep until the sun rises...

I'm not sure what time it is there.... but i would wake her up, feed her dinner, do bedtime routine and put her straight back to bed, at 4 she should be old enough to understand it is bedtime.



If my daughter falls asleep randomly I never let her sleep longer then an hour, especially not that late in the afternoon. BUT she doesn't normally nap anyway...
