    I don't think this is a problem either, at 6 months most babies still wake overnight for a feed and both my kids always woke at that time of day. Maybe go to bed earlier yourself so you aren't so tired and can start the day earlier?

    OMG I want this problem! My 14 month old goes down about 7.30/8 and isn't up until 6.30/7 but during the night I have to feed her 3-6 times on average. Sleeping through is sleeping through. If it was me I would adjust my own routine by going to bed an hour earlier and starting the day when bub wakes up. There's nothing in this issue that stops you or bub getting all the sleep you need. If it ain't broke... I know you already realise this isn't major issue but unless you have gone more than a year with never getting more than 5 hours sleep straight (happened once, average is 90mins- 2hrs) you don't realise how lucky you are!

    Yeah, sorry. I also have no sympathy. Your expectations are off. Instead of worrying about the fact that she's up at 6-6:30, be thankful that she sleeps through! My 7 month old slept through for ages but it's stopped now. She's getting me up 2-3 times a night at the moment. My 3.5 year old used to sleep in til 8;30 every morning, then it became 5:30 and sometimes even 5!!!! Things change and now with a gro clock, he is consistently up at 7. The point in trying to make is that even though she's getting up at a certain time now, that's likely to change anyway. My advice is to just enjoy the sleep through!

    I too don't think it's a reasonable expectation to want her to go back to sleep after 11 hours. My DS used to (and still does!) sleep like this, but when he was up in the morning, that was it. I would rather start my day at 6:30 than be woken up multiple times during the night, so I guess you just need to make peace with the situation!

    OP you are sooooo lucky.

    Really. I can't remember the last time I had a full nights sleep. My 11 month old wakes every 2-4 hours for play time. I'm exhausted.

    I think maybe it just sounds as though your bub is ready to get up!

    A lot of children are early risers. My older two used to sleep consistently to 7 am now its 5 am. There is nothing we can do to change this, nothing works it sucks but like the 7am wake up it won't be forever..

    Be prepared for your baby forming their own habits and just having to go with it.

    Ok first of all op I am sorry for some of the incredibly rude responses you have received here. I am hoping most of it comes down to some very sleep deprived women. But alot of you should be ashamed of how downright b*tchy you have been.
    However op I think you are just going to have to accept getting up at 6 -6.30. That is often just life with children. They all go through fazes and things will change many times in the next few years. Why not get up and snuggle under a blanket on the couch or something untill you are ready to get up or just start your day then, you will adjust in a week or so and it will become your new norm.

    OP unfortunately I do agree that it's going to be hard to get you LO back to sleep after that 11 hour stint. I do think that some of the comments have been a bit rude. Unfortunately it's a very emotive topic.

    I'm in a similar situation as you. DS sleeps from 7-6 most of the time but has started to wake up a little earlier lately although he's just over 2 now. I'm sure the only reason he doesn't wake up earlier is because it's still dark.

    I'm not a morning person at all so waking up before 6 just makes me a cranky pants. I really don't know how I did broken sleep (kudos to anyone still having to go through it). I find that if DS is happy to stay in his cot, I just leave him and doze for a couple of minutes extra. At times he's been so content talking to himself that it's been half an hour before I get him up. Is that an option for you?

    Another option that I'm going to try come summer is block out blinds to keep the room dark.

    I too agree that it is unreasonable to expect your little one to keep on sleeping.

    However, I do understand not wanting to get up at 6am in the morning. But honestly it's not an unreasonable for any one. .baby or adult.
    That said. .I'm not a morning person. So I often, when dd wakes early, put dolls in her cot and she'll play with them for 30 minutes or so quite happily while I slowly wake up with a cup of tea!

    I think you need to adjust your expectations.
    Asking anyone, especially a baby to go back to sleep after 11 hours sleep just because you don't want to get up is just selfish.
