    Me too! My boys have always been early risers! Through much blood, sweat and tears I've gotten them to stay in bed until 6am. They usually find their ds's and play quietly. Whatever allows me to get more sleep. It then created the problem of them waking at ridiculous o'clock just so they could play on the ds. That was a tough problem to solve.
    Dd is similar but will quite often sleep to 6 or 6:30 if I'm in bed beside her. But then again quite often she won't. She way playing on my phone at 5am this morning while I dozed beside her.

    Does anyone else find their early wakers will happily sleep in for others though? Eg when staying with mum or sil they sleep til 7-8:30?!? Wtf?!?

    yeah, my eldest stayed with his grandparents for 2 nights over the school holidays, and didn't get up till 6:30am which is just insane for him. He would never even consider staying in bed till that time here.
    I do think mine were getting up early to go play their devices, which I have now banned completely on school days. I don't think that will make them get up any later, but at least they have less reason to want to get up now. I am happy for them to go and watch tv quietly if they want to, but they are so loud. It's all happy loud so it's nice really, but loud none the less!
    My biggest concern is that they always end up in our bedroom jumping on our bed and waking us up (I'm already awake, I wake up as soon as they do I just don't get up) and being extremely noisy in our room. I'm trying to explain to them that in a few months there will be a baby sleeping in our room and it is a quiet place for sleeping only and if they want to get up early, they have to go somewhere else to play, but they just want to be with us. I'm just going to have to start getting up when they do I think so they stay away from bub who will hopefully be sleeping at that time of the day. (I normally get up at 5:50, but they've often been up nearly 2 hours by then).

    5am Every.Single.Day. But I can't really blame DD as we get up at 5am for work. Would be nice to have a sleep in on weekends though. We use a Gro Clock, but my DD just presses the buttons to make the sun come up instead of waiting lol

    hahah yeah. I drop them at daycare at 6:30 on my 3 work days, so we have to be up by 6 anyway, but not 4. Lol.
    Groclock has been a complete flop in our house too.

    I have early wakers that over time have moved from 5am to 5.30-45am. They do sleep by 7-7.15pm with a 1.5-2hr nap everyday.

    But we have a strict minimum screen time and zero processed food. I found processed food and tv in particular were making my kids too wound up in the evenings to relax properly. They are 3&5 yo now.

    My 2yo has always been a very early riser - summer seems to be 4:30-5:00am, winter about 6am. Doesn't matter what time he goes to bed, whether he's had a day nap or not.... He's just UP!

    There's a lock feature @bluehawaii !!! Press and hold the down button until a little cross comes up on the screen

    DD is awake between 5.30am and 6am every day. 6am is considered appropriate so she can get up after that (she is 5 yo). 2.5 yo DS was a really early riser (between 4.30am and 5.30am) until we travelled to Bali with him when he was about 22mths old. From the time we got back he slept until 6-7am. The changing time zones must have tricked his body clock somehow!

    Ds2 is the worst here and I usually up at 430am, no matter what time he goes to sleep. Ds1 can sleep until 6am if he's not woken up. This morning was the first time they've ever slept in and they were up just before 7.
