    Default What time does your 18 month old wake up?

    DS is amost 18 monts and drving us crazy. For the last few months he had been waking at 5am and grizzling til we get him up. He used to sleep til 7-7.30am so WHY OH WHY is he waking early now??

    he goes to bed at 7pm and has one big nap during the day (from 1.5-2 hours). I just dont get it. He is tried and grizzly most of the time cos he wakes too early or doesnt sleep enough during the day.

    So tell me, When does your 18 month old go to bed and wake? Do they have a bottle before bed? (i think hes waking up hungry). When do they nap in the daytime?

    Any advice on what i can do to get him to sleep in (6.30am would be nice)

    hehe u sound the same as me. my 18month old DD goes to bed at 7pm with no milk and usually she doesn't eat dinner. and wakes up at 5.45am without fail. she has a 3 hour sleep during the day it used to be about 12-3 but because she is now waking up so early its about 9-12 and then she is tired and ready for bed at about 5pm. its driving me crazy i wish i could get her to sleep in but have no idea how to.

    My DS is almost 19 months. He goes to bed between 730pm and 8pm and wakes around 730am. He usually eats a big dinner and maybe some yoghurt afterwards. He doesnt have any bottles.

    Nap time is about 12pm until 130pm.

    Is he waking cold?

    If your LO is waking up hungry could you offer some warm toddler milk in a sippy cup and a cuddle while he drinks it and then pop him off back to bed for a bit more of a sleep?

    My DD was breast fed til 17 months and would always wake at about 6am so I used to feed her and put her back to bed. She'd then sleep til 8-8:30. She dropped that feed herself and at 3 years old she wakes anywhere between 7:30 and 8:30.

    Other option is take him to your bed for a cuddle and sleep in? We do that sometimes if she gets up at 7:30 and we don't wanna get up yet our rule is she can come to our bed for a snuggle if it's daylight and that works well. If he starts to muck around in your bed tell him to go to sleep or he has to go back to his room

    Good luck!

    17 month old DD goes to bed at 7pm and wakes up just before 7am. We then put books into her cot and she reads for half an hour. She also has a 2 hour nap during the day, from around 11.30-1.30, and then reads in her cot for another half an hour.
