Slowly: Gently start the wake up process. Maybe first with some gentle music, then the lights in the room and finally some loving comments. Also gentle rubbing or the arms and legs. This slow process on a regular routine basis will help with that late sleeper. However, if you are talking about your 17 year old baby, then we need more rooms to answer that one :-).

Book the tickets now: Having just finished baby sitting our grandchild the answer is yes. This will give the parents a needed break and the grandchild will really enjoy some bonding time with grandma and grandpa. It is a win-win situation. Your child will adjust wonderfully upon your return. They do not forget mom and dad. Have fun! don't forget to buy grandma and grandpa a fun present on your trip.

Better choices: Fortunately, manufacturers know there may be problems when there are older children in the family. They now make toys that are great for the 4 year old older child, yet not harmful to the younger child. Look for purchasing safer toys initially. Also helpful is to put the older child in charge (with parental supervision) in purchasing toys. That way the older child will help with the safety.
