    Default SAVE OUR SLEEP.... Please :)

    Our beautiful dd has taken it on her self at every morning at about 5 am she will start screaming "MUMMY" and when you go in there she is still in bed with her eyes closed. She knows you came in and smiles. She goes to bed at 6pm every night (because norm she won't ever sleep past 6am no matter what time, and I like her bedtime then) I don't know how to get her to stop yelling every single morning till I go in there help me please

    I have blinds in my bedroom and have found they keep the majority of light out. I think that has helped. I'm going to buy them for all the bedrooms. they are just the roll down ones from bunnings.

    It could be the case that she is just getting enough sleep though. some kids just seem hard wired to certain times. My son has never been an early riser (he prefers to get up after 8am or later), but it is a struggle for him to go to bed before 9pm either, so you sort of end up with it at one end or the other.

    Wanting her to sleep longer than 6-5 is unfair, yes it is cold and dark but she has had enough sleep. My DD woke at 4:30am for 6 months, we just had to go with it, trying to change it was stressing everyone out. She eventually changed, but a later bedtime was the result. If you need more sleep you may need to go to bed earlier.

    The OP didn't say she wanted her to sleep longer- just not scream when she wakes at 5! Which is completely fair, I don't know anyone who would want to put up with that kind of wake up call.
    How old is your DD? Would she understand a reward chart? Could you set up some fun quiet activities in her room before you go to bed so she has something to play with for a while before she wakes you up? When DP and i want a bit of extra sleep on the weekend i set out some of DS's favourite toys (generally Lego) plus his bottle of water and a banana and/or some dry cereal. This is all useless if she is very young! But DS is 2.5 and it works a treat most of the time.
