DS has been sleeping through since 3 months (bless him!) - and at the moment a typical day look likes this:
6am - wakes up 6.30am - bottle 7-7.30am - breakfast nap midmorning - half bottle - varies as to when this is and he sometimes doesn't bother 11-11.30am - lunch nap 2-3pm - bottle 5-5.30am - tea 6.30pm - bottle 7-7.30pm - bed
Normally if he wakes early he goes back off if we get him into our bed but these last two days he has woken at 4.30am and needed to feed. I have given him his bottle early and compensated by making sure his mid-morning one is a whole bottle so he doesn't have a really early lunch. He goes straight back to sleep after feeding and wakes at the normal time. Any ideas as to why he might be waking? I don't think it's the light as it's actually getting darker in the mornings - plus we have moved bedrooms (a few weeks ago before anyone suggest that as a reason!) - and our new one is much darker and quieter. Does it sound like a growth spurt? I can't decide if it's something I just need to see through or if it's a habit forming IYSWIM.
NB he has really started to fight sleep ATM as well - I think he is geeting wound up and I don't know if that might be a factor?
Thanks in advance - off for nap now, he is sitting in his bouncy chair looking very surly!!
