    This thread has undergone a light cleaning.

    Sometimes it's not the content of the post that is the reason for deletion, but rather the tone. We don't' care if you are blunt in real life, and like to 'keep it real'. On BH, we ask that you be courteous and always remember that there is someone on the other side of the screen who may have more going on than just what they write about online.

    That being said, please

    Thanks, but I'm not after advice. It could be environmental, but we've tried changing several things. Some being, bed time, dinner time, wake time, bedding and pyjamas, light and noise, all to no avail. I've kid of just learnt that that's how it is for now and hopefully they will grow out of it.

    Whilst not wanting to engage with the rudeness evident here, my post says that bub is still tired, hence the attempts to resettle. I'm following her lead so when she seems tired, even after 10/11 hrs sleep, I try to resettle her. If it doesn't work, that's fine, we start our day. I appreciate constructive feedback, but there's no need to be rude.
    BlondeinBrisvegas;8261054]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??[/QUOTE]

I don't get her up before 7 cause I don't want to start a habit where she thinks it's ok to start the day while it's still dark. She's got a cold at the moment so things are a bit messy...
    You said "I don't want to start a habit where she thinks it's ok to start the day while it's still dark."... This read to me like you just don't want her awake at that time of the morning. It is totally different if she needs to be asleep.

    And there's nothing wrong with that.

    OP ignore the rudeness of the people that seem to know your life and your 6mo baby better than you.

    To me it sounds like you are addressing it the right way. I'd keep doing what you're doing and try to ride it out. Since it's a new behaviour chances are she'll go back to her usual sleeping patterns.
    Maybe try putting her to bed earlier, I know parents that had success with that even though it sounds counter intuitive.
