Wake to sleep for early wakings
« on: August 16, 2019, 06:38:36 am »
Hi everyone. My 18 month old has been waking up early for months between 5am and 6am. I have tried earlier bedtime, later bedtime, moving naps around but nothing has worked. So as I last resort I tried the wake to sleep method. I went in at 4.30am and disturbed her and she then slept untill gone 6am most mornings. However, after doing it for 3days I missed a day and then did another 2 days and then stopped. She’s gone back to waking before 6am. Should I start again? Or is this a sign that it won’t work! I don’t know what to do next! Any advice please

It may work, but some children are wired to be early riser. I know my youngest woke between 5 &6 until he gave up naps ND then woke around 6 until he hit 13years old! Now at 14 he wakes after 7 even on weekends and Holidays, which is early for a teenager
