For the record, 10-month-olds don't particularly care about "springing forward" or "falling back". For the record.
The boy has been on an early-to-bed, early-to-rise kick that might have won points with the Puritans but peeves his mama to the max. Little buddy needs to reset his time clock, pronto. How early is early? Try 3:45, peeps. I never thought I'd call 5:30 "sleeping in" but I'd give my right ear for a few extra winks. After his wake up bottle I can occasionally lull him back to sleep if I immediately throw on daddy's super-soft robe, turn on the white noise, and launch into "Wheels On The Bus". Sometimes that gets me an extra 40 minutes, sometimes it gets me a whole lotta baby backtalk. We're trying to edge his bedtime closer to 6:30 or 7 (versus the 5:30 he seems so attached to) because I am incapable of good mothering before dawn.
* UPDATE! This first part is no longer applicable. I hope.
Speaking of early morning rituals, apparently the boy is supposed to be off the bottle by 1. Is that true? Because that early morning bottle is ingrained. The other bottles he could probably do without but I can't imagine trying to get 8 oz. down him, especially at that hour, using a cup. He's just started figuring out how to get the sippy to his mouth (the actual head tilt is still tricky. Electriclady, I hear about becoming the kid's "drink bitch") and skipping it and going straight to breakfast seems weird. Usually we do a bottle when he wakes up, followed by breakfast an hour later. I know most of you breastfed so you probably didn't have to worry about it (why is it more acceptable to breastfeed after 1 year than it is to bottle feed?) Still, weaning is weaning and most of you have done that. Anybody have advice?
