Sleep - Early Riser

Hi everyone

Well for the past week Eliana has been waking up at 5.30am and wants to get up!!!!!!!!!!!

I have tried everything, leaving her to cry, feeding her water, feeding her milk, cuddles to see if she will go back to sleep. She was sleeping till 6am / 6.30am. She goes to bed at 7pm. She is teething, she has 2 teeth coming on top gum. She doesn't seem to be waking up hungry because she will just have a little milk. The only difference in her sleeping habits are that she is now sleeping solid from 7-5.30, sometimes she stirs but goes back to sleep herself, whereas before i would need to go in and put her dummy in and she would be awake for half hour/hour in the night. I know i am lucky that she is sleeping through but i just wondered if anyone else had an early riser and what they did? Just an extra half hour till 6am would be fabby, i am so tired having to get up at 5.30am! The other day i got duvet out of spare room and lied on her bedroom floor while she played in her cot for half hour. :innocent:

Any advice would be great

I think really the only thing to do is to leave her to it. If she was happy to play in her cot while you lay on th efloor next to her then it is simply that she wants company. Sounds to me like it is time for that little girl of yours to find out that mummy doesn't want to play at half past five in the morning :rolleyes: :snigger:

If you are happy with just an extra hour lying in bed, I would do just that. Sooner or later she will get the message and then you can start lengthening that time. She is in her cot, she is perfectly safe and a half hour of upset will not do her any damage - it might just be enough to make you feel human again though!

I completely agree with Rivka. I'd put a couple of board books into her cot and a safe toy just to keep her occipied.... and leave her to it

I sympathise. Max from 12 weeks old has slept through from 7pm - any time after 9am. For some reason the past few weeks have been anywhere between 5-6am, feel like i have a newborn again. If you find a solution let me know! I have tried leaving books and toys in his cot but he just throws them out and screams for me until i go get him.
