    Default Baby waking up earlier and earlier

    My DD (almost 8 months) has always been a great sleeper and has slept through since 10 weeks old. She sleeps 6.30pm-6.30am

    However the last week she has been waking earlier and earlier, 6am, 5.45am and today was 5am!!! I don't know why!

    She has only started solids (2 times a day) this past week as before she wasn't interested.

    She has been trying to crawl this past week too.

    Could any of these be the reason why??? Is it a phase? I'm so tired!

    Could also be because the sun is starting to rise earlier, too?

    I'm jealous. If my nearly 8 month old DS slept that well I'd be up doing cartwheels at 5am. Ha.

    Seriously though, blockouts helped my DD on those bright mornings

    I will do what I can to avoid getting up at 5am...so I understand your pain...no matter how much sleep I've had before that.

    Just curious...what does she do when she wakes up?

    Have you tried to resettle her?

    Have there been any changes in her day sleeps?

    My 9 month old does this. .. sometimes 5am... sometimes 530am...etc. I refuse to get her up. . unless she's crying. So I go in when I hear her and give her a toy, like a stuffed soft toy that rattles, I tuck her back in and put on her lullaby music and leave. More often than not she plays herself back to sleep.

    I have left two small toys at top of cot for her to get when she wakes. She has just started to roll onto her tummy and try to crawl (even though she has a sleeping bag on) then gets frustrated and whinges

    My dd is the same but (5 months) so subbing!!! Could she have a cold?

    Do babies change when daylight savings come in? I'm adjusting to her sleep its killing me. She used to sleep 8:30-7:30/8 Now it's 9pm-5:30/6 with sometimes a 2am feed since we started solids!

    Where we are, the mornings have gotten a bit cool again despite it being warmish at bedtime. Could she be cold? It does should like she has a fair bit going on developmentally and there is a wonder week at about 8 mths.

    I'm not sure if this will help, as i guess it's all relative (although I do find it helpful to keep things in perspective), but my almost 8 mth old has woken at 5am her whole life, has never slept for 12 hours, and hasn't slept for more than 4 hrs in a row for about 4 months. I would be over the moon if I could have even 6 hrs uninterrupted sleep and get up at 5am!

    That aside, I hope your little one starts sleeping later for you again soon!
