    Default Sleep..

    DD is 18 months and is in bed for the night from 630pm each night. She used to sleep until roughly 630am which is great! Lately she has been waking at 5-530am..
    By putting her to bed later would this make a difference to the time she wakes?

    You can always try. Remember it may take a few nights for this to work so don't give up after one night.

    Personally I tried it and it didn't work just made dd overtired and grumpy. Mind you, she was always an early bird from about 14 months .... Sleeping from 630-5/530 roughly.

    Has anything else changed? What about her day naps?


    Having an early bird really sucks sometimes. Best of luck.

    Nah no changes, her routine is still the same. I will try and out her to bed a little later and see if it makes any difference after a little while.

    Early risers sure can be hard sometimes but its all good.

    Thanks so much ☺

    My DD is an early riser, sometimes they just are & there's nothing you can do. I played around with her routine but no matter what time she's in bed (normally 6:30-7 but have left it til 8:30 on nights out for dinner etc), she is always awake at 6 on the dot! At least we know what to expect right?!

    It seems to have more bearing on what time their first nap is during the day as to what time they will wake the following morning, not really what time the go to bed for the night if that make sense. Try and push her day sleep out 20 mins today and see if that helps tomorrow morning, Good luck!

    Default Sleep..

    At that age I would say the time and length of the day nap would have more of an impact on early rising than bedtime (night).

    What time is her day nap and how long does she sleep for?

    Pretty much any sleep article I read says a later bedtime never results in later wake ups and in fact state a slightly earlier bed time is more likely to help.

    That's interesting as for my ds a late bedtime does mean a later wake up the next day. For example, he went to bed late last night and slept in an hour later today. He isn't an early riser though fortunately.
