    Agree with alimia, it has to be an infant chiro or an osteo, not just any old bone-cracking sports-injury type chiro. What do you know about the chiro you are going to see elleandsam?

    If he's sleeping through now bur waking at 3.30am, have you tried introducing a dream-feed/top-up before you go to bed or around 10-11pm?

    Sorry, hit send too fast! Giving him a top up may just help him sleep that bit longer was my point...may not work, but I'd be trying anything to NOT start my day that early. my D S has started waking between 5-6am and i thought that was bad! I feel for you *hugs*.

    I'd try a dream feed first for a week or two ... Then if that didn't work I'd drop a day sleep ... Dripping a day sleep means a week or two of mr cranky pants but it'll be worth it if it works ...

    (((hugs))) I have a friend whose son is the same age as mr magoo and never grew out of 4am wake ups - I don't know how she does it!

    I have absolutely no advice, but just want to share that we're going through similar stuff and it sucks.

    Can you call tresillian or karitane? They might get you to come in for a few days for a residential

    You know my daughter was doing this. It started at around 8 months and she would be up to start the day at 4 am every day until she was 13 months when I dropped her am breast feed...She was obviously waking so early as she was so excited about boobie... since that day she has slept in until 730 every morning.... would you consider dropping his morning feed? Hope you find some answers that work soon...

    At the moment 7pm IS keeping him up later, if it were up to him he'd go to bed at 6pm. We tried 8 for 4 days but it didn't make a difference.

    We live in Townsville and I don't agree with their methods anyway.

    We're going to an infant chiro in Dalby while we're on holidays. Not sure what we'll do when we get back as I don't have transport in Townsville.

    We're seeing an infant chiro.




    I'm going to try a dreamfeed tonight and see what happens. I would be 100% happy with a 5am wake up, anything before 4 is just unbearable.

    Hopefully that helps. I know if my DS has just one feed at midnight he wakes at 5.30am. If he wakes for a second at 4am though he sleeps till 7am.
