    Lol..... I was going to say I've seen enough sunrises and lorikeets in my time from partying way to hard!! Haha


    Now our bubba isn't even here but she's waking me up around 430-5 daily for numerous reasons... To pee, heartburn, indigestion, hunger pains...... Loving being pregnant!!! Hahaha

    Good work! Some days will be better than others but if you can stick to the same routine eventually he will get the idea

    My LO did exactly the same thing at this age i think it was 8-11 months... In the Babybliss Book by Jo Ryan she suggests not to put them down before 9am for for first day sleep as supposedly this does make them sleep in longer the next morning and stop the early waking - she has no reason as to why. We tried it and it worked and we managed 530 am starts. However I also found once I dropped DDs morning breast feed at 15 months she started sleeping in way longer ie 7-730 am which she still does now I think it's just a crazy phase they go through... hopefully it won't be long and your little one will be over it!

    5-5.30 starts here, im slightly over considering both girls used to sleep till 8am.

    New blockout curtains have helped to a point, they now wake DH at 6 .

    I went to Bunnings yesterday and got some thick black plastic and taped it all around DS's window. It was fairly dark before but now it's really black in his room.

    He slept until 6.50am this morning!! Absolute miracle!!
