Before Daylight Saving Time ended, my two year old would sleep until about 7:45 - 8:00 AM. This worked well for my wife's and mine morning schedule. However, since Daylight Saving Time ended a week ago (the "fall back" version) my toddler regularly awakens at 7:00 - 7:15 AM despite adjusting quite quickly to the proper going to sleep time.
This earlier waking time does not jive well with the morning schedule my wife and I had created, and usually makes me later getting out the door than I was previously. How can we help our toddler have the same sleep schedule (specifically sleep for the same number of hours) as before Daylight Saving Time ended?
Previously my toddler, after awaking, would usually lay in bed quite contented for some time, either talking to himself or quietly calling for one of his parents. Now after awaking he transitions directly to wanting to be out of bed and starts calling quite strongly for one of us to get him out of bed.
Since Daylight Saving Time ended, there was one night we kept our son up about an hour past his normal bed time (he didn't seem tired yet) and then another time when he didn't fall asleep for about an hour and a half after being put to bed (when normally he falls asleep pretty fast). Both these times I thought would "kickstart" his morning wake up time to be more like what it was before Daylight Saving Time ended, but he woke up at 7:00-7:15 just like before.
