hi all,

my ds has been sleeping through for the past few weeks smile heaven!

he usually gets up between 5am-6am so i give him a feed and put him back to bed, he goes back to sleep till 7.30-8am

when i was at my baby group, told one of the other girls this and they seemed shocked that i put him back to bed....

just wondering if anyone else puts them back to bed or gets up at that time for the day??

I used to do this with my DD up til.she was about 3mo but now she won't go back down, so I say enjoy it while it lasts!

I used to do the same as you, they would wake up around 7ish and then go down for their morning nap a couple of hours later; dear me, why would anybody want to start their day at that time if they don't have to!

Hi my ds usually wakes up at around 6am too, I wish he would go back to sleep for an hour or two. It's so tiring having to get up at that time. I have to take him downstairs so he doesn't wake his brother up (5yrs and in school full time) as I don't think it's fair to wake him up that early. Jealous envy

Anything before 7 am is NOT a civilized getting-up time! If DS (almost five months) wakes up even at 6:50, I put him back to bed or at least try to. Usually, his early morning feed - or I prefer to think of it as "the second night feed" - is at 5 am. He usually goes back down until 7:30.

Make the most of it! My 8mth DS used to do this... Now I'm really happy that he's 'slept in' hmm until 5.30am for the last two mornings... 4.30am is NOT morning in my mind!

Agree with WorrisomeHeart - just enjoy it! DD used to go back down after her 5/6am feed until she was about 8 months as well, then suddenly decided she didn't want to anymore... luckily after a few months of very early starts, she now usually sleeps right through until 7am.

Ooh Metalhead, you give me hope! 5am this morning [yawn]
