    Default Waking early

    My 6.5 Month old used to go to sleep at 7pm each night and wake up at 7am. For the last few weeks he has been waking up hungry at 5am or a bit later and won't resettle after a bottle.

    He is on 3 meals a day plus 4 bottles following sos routine. His room is warm enough.

    Any suggestions?

    Maybe a growth spurt? Hopefully he starts sleeping in for you

    LOL! I have no idea but just wanted to say it sucks when they do that- throws their whole day out of whack when they wake too early. So i totally get what you're complaining about! Definitely complain worthy.

    i would feed him when he wakes at 5/5.30 then top him up at 7 so he is starting the day on usual full tummy. Keep him up untill his usual morning sleep. This would help you to keep the daily routine flowing normal when he wakes early.
    I agree with PP, if its out of ordinary then its probably a growing spurt in which case it wont last forever so enjoy some quiet early morning snuggles with him

    So frustrating when they do that. I have enough trouble in the evenings with DS being over tired when he starts his day at 7 let alone when he starts it earlier.

    Could you try setting an alarm for yourself for say an hr before he has been waking and give him a bottle while he is still asleep? That way hopefully he wouldn't need to wake up being hungry and would stay asleep until normal time.

    you could also try putting him down later for his first monrning sleep. Apparently the time you put them to bed for their first sleep has an impact on when they will wake the next morning. So if he goes down at 9am try 9.20 ect...
    If all else fails try moving his bedtime to 6.30pm
    However im pretty sure this will be a short phase and you will just have to put up with it untill he sorts himself out. Thank the gods you get full nights!
