    Sorry I'm not feeling to sympathetic ATM. I have a 3 yr old, 2 yr old, an 9 week old. I'm up at least 5 times a night because they all seem to tag team each other in the wake up department, and my 2 year old generally starts the day between 4 & 430 am.
    I think 11 hours over night, straight btw, is a pretty decent sleep for anyone. Yeah 6am might not be ideal, but I'd take it while it's there, because in another month your bub might be up a few times a night an waking earlier. Unfortunately there's not much advice I can offer, because I can't remember the last time I slept through the night, let alone 11 hrs straight.
    I'd also just start going to bed a little earlier if you're not getting quite enough sleep.

Her room's nice & dark so it's not that either. After 11 hrs, it's genuine hunger & probably that she feels like she's been asleep for long enough & therefore wants to start her day!!!
    Definitely could be hunger, have you considered a dream feed around 10 or 11pm? But...sometimes waking for a dream feed can lead to more waking (did for my son) so up to you if you want to give it a try.

    Default 6 month old sleeps 11 hrs but then won't go back to sleep even when tired

    Haven't read any replies.

    3 possibilities come to mind:

    1. Day naps - time to cut out the third nap and make the first day nap a little later (20-30mins to start)
    2. Hunger - on solids yet for 3 meals with at least 1/3 protein for lunch and dinner?
    3. Temperature - what is the temp of bubs room at bedtime and then 5:30am/6am? What bedding is bub in. 5amish is the coldest part of the morning.

    Hey that's not really fair. Just because you're having a rough trot doesn't mean the OP isn't allowed to seek advice on encouraging bub to sleep through until 7am.

    Unless there are medical issues (apart from your 9 week old) sleep throughout from the other kids are feasible with some tweaks to routine. If you want to brainstorm ideas I am happy to help but it might be best to start your own thread.

    Just a heads up I'm about to start my own thread on this very point. I do not agree.

    Op I don't think Bub will get in a bad habit. They are constantly changing and changing up their routines. Something that makes me feel better is "this too shall pass" and "it won't last forever".

    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.
    Babies can form habits.
    Bub could be waking from many things which aren't directly connected with having enough sleep:
    - being aided to sleep
    - hunger (not enough protein etc)
    - too much day sleep
    - not enough day sleep
    - timings of day sleep (pushing out first nap can help).

    Nothing wrong with discussing how to tweak a routine to get a 7am sleep through. My boys sleep through until at least 7am and it's freakin awesome!

    Sounds like you're having a rough day yourself - work, kids or hubby causing you grief? (For me it's a case of all 3!)

    Go ahead. I stand by my comments and add that if a 2 and 3 year old without medical issues are consistently waking through the night it's due to environmental issues which can be addressed.

    Done. Please stay out of the thread I created. I am not after advice.
