Hey ladies. Recently my baby 4.5 month has decided 4:30-5am is a
Good time to wake up. He's going to bed at the same time as he was when he was sleeping in till 6-7am.
HOW on earth do I get him to sleep in again. I'm pregnant and exhausted and need sleep. At the moment I've been sleeping with his cot side carded to the bed but I'm
Wondering if I should move him back to his own room again? But he still wakes 3 times a night for bottles.

My ds slept through the night from 6 wks but he used to start the day at around that time, nearly everyone I know goes through stages of very early waking. My sister has a 2 and 3 yo and they are still doing it :/ I use a gro clock for my 3 yo so he doesn't get up until 7am but that's not really an option until theyre around 2yo.
Is it possible that you could drop one of the day sleeps and see if that helps? What time are you putting him to bed? Sounds silly but I had a better chance of my ds sleeping in longer if he went to bed earlier, he's still like that now.
Congrats on the pregnancy btw

If I dropped any day sleeps he would be a grumpy mess. He gets awfully cranky when he's tired.
He goes it bed at 6pm almost every night set by him really because that's when he gets cranky and we just wrap him and he will go right down. Only waking for his bottles. But then he just wont stay asleep! So I get him up and change him play for about 10 minutes as then he's ready to go back for a sleep again.

Is the room dark? If not, you may want to get some block out curtains.

I don't know where you live, but could he be getting cold at that time of the morning?
