Persistent early waking
My son was born with CHARGE syndrome - he's now 11. His sleep pattern has always been erratic, but over the last couple of years he was woken earlier and earlier. He's at senior school now and is so tired by the end of each day and it worsens as the week goes on. Once he wakes he simply cannot go back off to sleep - he is simply wide awake. It is common for CHARGE children to be medicated for sleep but we wondered if there were was any advice to help us before we reached that point. Thanks
