    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.

    I completely get the idea that 6am is too early! I feel the same - luckily my DH gets up with my DD at 6am and lets me sleep. I think the idea of just letting your LO play in her cot for a little while if she is happy to do so. That way you can doze (or get up and have a coffee!).An 11 hour stretch overnight is fantastic at 6 months old, so I would be hesitant to change anything just to try to get her to sleep later.

    Her body has had enough sleep so she wakes up it's as simple as that!! This is what it means to be a parent/have a baby for God's sake!!

    Just because you deem it too early to start your day is too damn bad...forcing her to go back to sleep like you are instead of doing your job @ getting up with her is sheer laziness and selfishness IMO.
    Why be so rude!?

    I think this thread is offering the OP a bit of perspective and she will most likely adjust her expectations. It's unnecessary to be as blunt as some of you are being.

    Enough said I reckon

    It's not rude...it's calling a spade a shovel @ I did preface my post by saying I was going to be blunt.

    Other posters may choose to sugar coat their replies even though the message they're sending is exactly the same on the whole...I choose to say it exactly how it is so there's no room for misunderstanding.

    No doubt her LO thinks it's rude when instead of her mother coming to pick her up out of her bed @ start getting on with the day with her after a mammoth sleep she instead forces her back to sleep!!

    That's what's rude @ uneccessary..not my honesty...Enough said😊

    I do agree in the scheme of things a baby waking 6am even though she's sleeping 11 hours every night is fantastic. I will gladly have my son (16 months) wake at that time if it meant sleeping through the night every night. My son still wakes up

    But calling the OP selfish and lazy.. I don't know..

    Ok..Then what would you call it when the only reason OP won't get up @ attend to her child when she wakes after 11 hrs of sleep is because she thinks it's too early for her liking??

    Re-read her updated post from this morning then tell me how you would describe her behaviour??

    11 hours!! Awesome effort .. I think it's very unfair to expect your baby to go back to sleep!! Unfortunately early starts are part of being a parent ..

    This exactly. ^^^
    5:30-6am is a totally normal time for a baby to start the day. Don't make her go back to sleep. Just go to bed earlier to cope with the early start. I go to bed at 9-9:30pm to compensate for the 5:30 starts and my 23 month old usually wakes 1-2 times in the night too. So I'd say you're winning!! It being dark makes no difference to her and there is every chance her sleeping patterns will naturally change many times over the next couple of years anyway.

    Ah ok... I did not read her new recent comment. I have now though.

    So she's trying to get her baby back to sleep even though she's slept a full 11 hours and waking at 6:30/7am?!

    Geez!!

    I apologise. I agree with you.

    Sorry OP but come on!!!
