At this age it is going to be very difficult if not impossible to get your 4 year son to sleep during the day. His sleeping pattern is commonly seen in intelligent children especially boys. He has always been an early riser so this is not going to be easy to change either. If he can keep himself amused when he wakes up early let him do so. He may want to build his Lego or look at books when he wakes. The main thing is not to let it disturb your sleep too much. So it would probably be best to ignore him whe he wakes and let him get on with keeping himself amused.No sedatives are recommended or will help to improve his sleep pattern.
