How on earth do we get our 22 month old to sleep past 5am?! Another long day...

Hi all,

DD is generally a good sleeper unless ill however the last few weeks she has been waking anywhere from 5-6 am, 6.30 if we're lucky! She always has a blackout blind & her routine hasn't changed - nap from 1-2 (or 3) & bed at 7. No problems getting her down or her falling to sleep, she'll happily go off in her own but come 5am she's wide awake! We've tried leaving a drink out, getting her milk & leaving her, giving her books, puttin in an "In the night garden" CD, bringing her into our bed but nothing works. If we leave her in her room he's bored after 20 mins & will scream, if we bring her in with us she just runs around & pulls clothes out of our drawers! Any advice? We would love a lie-in til 7!! smile

Try cutting out the daytime naps, if that fails put her to bed later.

a 3am wake to sleep usually cures early morning waking. Messing with naps can make it worse sad
