    Default Early risers?

    DS is waking between 3.30-5am every morning - waking for the day. His night sleeping is going great but it doesn't matter how early I get to bed, 4am still feels too early to be getting up!

    I'm not complaining too much, but just wondering about other's experience - is it just a phase? Is there anything I can do to fix it? How many other mums are made to wake up at this ungodly hour?

    TIA

    Me I am! Most mornings it's about 415 and it's never before 4am... Drives me a little koo koo and it means I can't plan to go for a run if I really wanted too

    How old is your DS and what time does he go to bed?

    Mine does it too, I have posted this on here before. I am going to try the Wake to Sleep Technique this week to see if it makes a difference. She us 18 months.

    May I ask what is the wake to sleep method? I also have an early riser but he sleeps poorly overnight so I'm just constantly tired

    He is 10mo and goes to bed around 7. On the odd night when he hasn't gone to bed till 8 he's still up at 4am.

    I limit his day sleeps to around 2 1/2 hours.

    I wake at 5 most mornings with mine. Sometimes earlier, but I still wake at 5 by habit even when she sleeps in. this has been the way for 8 years.
