    Default Toddler waking 6am, normal?

    I am assuming this is normal for most toddlers (aged 2), but just want to check .
    DS sleeps 3 hrs during the day (I dont want to wake him earlier as he will be super grumpy) and goes to bed around 7.30/8am. He falls asleep without any trouble. He wakes 6-6.20am VERY awake and ready to start the day!

    If we have a very big day (swimming, party) or a later night, then he will sleep in until 7-7.30am...

    Sounds normal to me waking around 6. Jealous of the three hour sleep.

    My two year old DS wakes anywhere between 6 am and 7.20 am. Generally it's about 6.20 to 6.40. He sleeps for between 40 minutes and an hour and half during the day and goes to bed about 7pm.

    Wow..thats great.

    My 2.5 year old wakes at 5am most mornings!! Asleep by 7:30, 1 hour nap if that and super active - yet this is sufficient to keep her functioning..

    I'd be very very happy to swap?!

    Sounds pretty normal to me too.

    DD (2 tomorrow), goes to bed around 7/7:30pm and usually on week days when I have to get up at 6 for work, she usually wakes anywhere from 6 - 7, tho usually 6/6:30 but on weekends she seems to enjoy waking anywhere from 5-6 *facepalm*

    This morning she woke at 5:30 so I brought her in bed with me for extra snuggles but that only lasted half an hour and we've been up since 6......

    I'm already ready for nap time haha but she doesn't have day naps until around 10:30 for about an hour or two but the only way we can get her asleep for day naps is to take her for a walk in the pram or a drive so I won't get to nap anyway

    Ok, well as long as "I" get a good night sleep, I dont mind the 6am wakes! I try to go to bed between 9.30-10am knowing that! Also I have a bub on the way, so things will change for all of us again in around 5 weeks time.
    Thanks for your replies.

    Yes fairly normal! They love waking early!!!

    As they get older though they do settle down and sleep later!

    I remember thinking it would never happen... But it does
