I'm grumpy when I get woken up too!!!!!
I strongly believe never wakes a sleeping baby
My vote is let her sleep til she wants first for a week and see if that makes a difference before spending money on doctors and specialist.
Recent research has shown that sleep in children may be just as important as diet in relation to their development and cognitive abilities/ learning capacities etc. at this young age they might gain more long term benefit from sleeping than doing early morning activities.
My DD has always slept quite a bit more than her peers - she's 2.5 now and still loooooves sleep ( like me!)
She wakes at 8.30 am and I just work around it.
If she misses out on any sleep it's a disaster all round!
Good luck OP Xxx

Thanks ladies. Lots for me to try. I don't wake her every morning and she's even grumpy the mornings that she wakes herself. And if I don't wake her from her day sleep and let her go, she won't go to Bed until 10pm so I feel like I have to wake her from her day sleep. She can only sleep a max of 2 hours during the day otherwise she's up at all hours. If I don't wake her she sleeps over 3 hours but like I said then she's up really late at night. It's a hard one. She's never grumpy when I wake her up from her day sleep. It's just the mornings that seem to be an issue. Was great to hear that some of you have had similar experiences and no medical conditions. Will keep an eye on it and go in for peace of mind if I'm still worried. Thanks again ladies.

It was rough for quite a long time but she's heaps better now she's nearly 3 and a half. You're lucky you don't have to really worry about work or pick ups and drop offs. That can be hard on young kids but it has made DD2 very adaptable.

Two year old always tired in mornings - any ideas??
Hi ladies saw my GP yesterday. Explained that she's just started one day of daycare a week and she can't even make it passed lunchtime to go to bed at the same time as the other kids despite waking up later than them. Along with all the other symptoms/concerns, she says it is time to look into it. Have referral to ENT. She reckons he will probably take adenoids out.
