DS has started to wake for the day at 4.30am where previously he was sleeping till 7ish. I have tried to BF him back to sleep but he is WIDE awake and not interested. Is this a sign that he is sleeping too much during the day? He is 10 mths and has 2 sleeps totalling 3-4 hours if he wakes at 4.30, but if he does sleep later I can only get him to have 1 sleep of around 2-2.5 hours.
I don't know whether to move his bedtime to later (currently 7pm) or to try with just one sleep per day.
Any suggestions would be great, I am soooo not a morning person and 4.30am still feels like the middle of the night :-(

Will he go back to sleep if you put him in the bed with you? My DS has always woken early and the only way for us to both sleep in is if i put him in the bed in morning. Otherwise i would try cutting him back to one sleep see if that works, what time is he waking up from afternoon sleep? I would never let my DS sleep past 3.30pm otherwise he wasn't tired enough for bed and wouldn't have a good sleep.

Thanks happy 86, unfortunately he won't sleep in bed with us, he thinks it's party time. I think I will try the 1 sleep and also try and stretch him out to staying in his bed longer in the mornings too.

Op, we had the same problem at 10mths and again last week at 13mths.
No idea what caused it, but what helped for us was just general re-settling. We're still working on it, and DD is waking at 7ish..even 9am on Monday!
What we do is, offer a feed then sit with her and pat and shhh or hum or sing until he's quiet and leave the room. If it continues for too long, just stay with him in the room patting and shhhhing until LO is asleep.
Worth a try?

We had this issue and it improved when we dropped to one sleep a day.
