Here's my Re: Re: I'm not sure this is healthy for a child much less a toddler. Are you waking up your children at 5:30 or is that the time they wake up on their own? Don't they get tired? My daughter wakes up at 6 but we have time in the morning to spend with each other and play games like which Beatle sings which songs. But whatever works for you. I just know how important sleep is for a toddler.
