Re: [IPp] Dawn Phenom...


We have the same thing with our daughter, Emily, 10.  Everyone talks about
the dawn phenomenon, and we are the opposite.  Emily's basals currently are
12noon-8pm .3, 8pm-10pm .4, and 11pm-1am .5, then 1am-8am .2.  It took us a
while to figure this out, but, now works pretty well.  Somewhere I read that
a growth hormone can kick in right after kids fall asleep.  Good Luck!
