Our 9 month old wakes at 4.30am every day. He used to wake up at 6am and we would try to keep him in his cot until 7am. Lately he's been waking earlier and earlier. It started at 7 months when I stopped feeding him every time he woke at night. I now only give him one top up and he sleeps through after that - but the price seems to be early waking. At first it was 5.30am, then 5am, and now 4.30am! I still don't give him his morning breast feed until 7am and it doesn't seem to bother him, so I don't think it's hunger. We've tried soothing him back to sleep and leaving him alone to chat to himself hoping he'll fall back asleep, but neither has worked. Any ideas??
