Wakes Up Too Late

Postby autumnfox » Mon Feb 05, 2018 9:51 pm

My little boy doesn't usually wake up until after 1am these days, which is just too late for me since I have to wake up at 6am for work. If I stay up then it kills me the next morning, but I feel so guilty that I can't let him out to play and he only spends time with me asleep in his pouch. I worry about his mental health and our bond. If I try to wake him up earlier, he will just scurry to some nook or cranny to fall back asleep in. Is there anything I can do to change his sleep schedule?

Don't worry this is just his nature. When you are with him have you tried letting him sleep in your tucked-in shirt instead of a pouch? I never used a pouch and Chuck just slept in my shirt when I went about my day. Having him next to you and sleeping against you is bonding too.

I'm just a little paranoid I'll crush him accidentally if he is not in a pouch while I'm moving around :puppydogeyes: I only put him in the pouch for the beginning though(about 30 minutes to an hour) and then I'll sit down and watch TV or Youtube and place him in a small blanket on my lap and stroke him while he sleeps for a long time. He really loves this as he can lick me and sprawl out.
