    She has always been on the go constantly, rarely seems tired and didn't sleep much as a baby/ toddler.

    Hope it improves for you op! Sorry, no great advice but you're not alone.
    Thank you! It is good hearing I'm not alone even though I know I'm not lol
    DS is the same - on the go constantly and it seems that he could just go all day even though I know he would need to be tired.

    How old is your DS?
    DS is 3. I think it is so hard to understand because he was great at sleeping in till 7 and more for so long.

    Default Early waking

    How old is your ds?
    Dd1 started early rising (waking from 5ish) from 14 months onwards. Tried everything- black out blinds, heater, leaning her to cry in the cot......

    The only thing that worked here was putting her to bed earlier. It never stopped the early morning wake ups but it meant she was getting 11-12 hours at night.

    Good luck. I have two early birds, I have not slept past 6am in almost 4 years. Positives are they are in bed early (7pm is a late night) and things are nice and quiet at the shops/playgrounds lol.

    Oh in that case have you tried a gro clock?
    It's been a game changer here - dd1 still gets up early but knows not to come out of her room till the sun is up (or if I'm already up and I am with dd2 around 5ish anyways).

    Exactly this. We got a Sam the sleep clock and it has worked a dream. He wakes up sometime between 5-6 most mornings and we usually don't hear a peep out of him. There have maybe been 4 mornings in the last 6 months when he's gotten out of bed early. We do allow him to read books in bed if he's awake though.

    The only issue I have now is that we have trained DS so well that he won't get up to go to the toilet without one of us unless Sam is awake which makes me nervous to remove his night nappies even though he's dry every morning.

    I always assumed DS wouldn't really understand it at his age? I'd be willing to try if other mums reckon it might help!
    DS was in our bed at 5am this morning

    DS did not get it. He just cried/screamed until we got him out of bed. He did not even quietly sneak into our beds until a few months ago.

    I would try it though. It would not hurt.
