    Default Lack of Daylight Saving in Qld

    How do you get your bubs to sleep to a respectable time? DD (12 mths old) was waking at 6.30-7.00am, now it is closer to 5.30am as it is starting to get light and the birds are making a racket. (Our house backs onto a small strip of bushland).

    I put some block out blinds in her room but its not helping. I assume this will only get worse as it will be getting light at 4.30 soon? I have only lived in Qld for a year and am just realising how good daylight saving really is.

    I've been in qld for 24 years and I still miss daylight savings! The sun comes up too early in summer!

    Option 1- use mdf cut to exact window measurements and use that to block noise/light out.

    Option 2- as soon as the baby gets up (2yo at our house wakes at 5am) we go for our morning walk (i pop newbie in pram as well). The babies fall asleep if they are tired and i get exercise. We now stop at a park for breakfast every 2nd or 3rd day.

    Both girls have a nap 11-2pm.

    I love the bright mornings. I loathed daylight savings when i lived in sydney.

    Yep another that loves that Qld doesn't have daylight savings. while my bubs wake up early they also go to bed so much earlier its great because I have the energy in the morning but don't by night fall.

    You could try Alfoil on the windows that's what all the shift workers in the mines use. Not the prettiest but definitely does the job. Also air on sounds out noise and thankfully Qld is hot enough to want to use it. Though I am not one for aircons and bubs so much, it does work for noise.

    Thanks for the good tips, I am sure I will adjust eventually to the early starts.
