    What are his day sleeps like?
    My DS is 17 months and we cut him down to one day sleep about a month ago as he was waking at about 5-530 and it seems to have fixed things up.
    I usually put him down after an early lunch (1130) and I don't let him sleep after 4pm, so even if he needs another sleep later I'll make sure he's awake by then.

    Now he'll usually only have bad night if he's sick or his teeth are playing up (his top and bottom fangs - don't know their real names- are coming through)

    Now that I'm sorting his sleep out my DDs have decided to go back to waking 2-3 times each night :-( can't win..

    He just won't. I get a eep in every 2nd Friday and once every weekend. I get up at stupid o'clock cos ds won't drop his wake up breastfeed. Then I stay up with him till 6 and go back to bed till 8-9ish. Gro clock worked for a few weeks. Now he ignores it And yells for me to switch on the sun so he can get up.

    Its worth trying though.

    He only has one day sleep now. 1.5-2 hours.

    What about food? What time does
    Bubba eat? Is there a gap
    Of at least an hour between solids
    And the last milk feed?

    Do you feed bub at 3:30? bub's shouldn't need a feed through the night from 6-8 months, but many will wake out of habit if there are given one.

    Good luck.

    my son does exactly the same, usually wakes at 5am every morning and he alsot wakes often throughout the night. The only way i have been able to keep him bed beyond 5am is if he wakes for a feed at around 3am and occassionally if I get him to bed rather early he will sleep in a little, surprisingly.

    The books will tell you to put them to bed earlier rather than later and see how that will work.

    Maybe try to put him to bed around 6pm and see if he goes until 6am in the morning - its worth a try.

    Good luck - i hope you are able to play around with a few different things and see if you can get him to sleep at least another hour or two for you.

    I'm going to second the earlier to bed. no idea why but if we put dd down around 7/7.30 she will sleep till 6am but if we put her down around 8/8.30 she is up by 5.30am

    I was drinking camomile tea in the afternoons hoping that the calming effect goes through me to bub. cant say it worked conclusively but i did notice an improvement.

    The other thing I do when DD wakes up before 5am is plonk her in front of the tv and i doze on the couch behind her.

    What time does he go to bed at night? Reason I ask is DS did this until I moved his bedtime forward from 9pm to 6:30pm. We have drifted back to 7:30pm now so dh can spend time with ds before he goes to bed but the earlier bedtime has worked as I think he became overtired so would wake throughout the night for that reason

    He goes to bed at 7. Any earlier then that just wouldn't work and I can't keep him up any longer, he gets too cranky.

    hugs
    my ds is 15 months too and is doing similar goes down about 7:30 wakes about 5. also wakes a few times in between. i too was thinking this can't be right but then it is 9.5 hours which technically is a nights sleep even though it doesn't feel like it cause i can't go to sleep when he does due to other.kids and getting up a few times in between im tired argh.
    wish i had some useful advice but i don't, just hugs
