My 7 mth old wakes between 5 & 5.30 every morning . Tried feeding , rocking, letting him cry but nothing changes. Goes to bed just before seven. Any advice on other things I could try or do I just have to accept this is the way it is...second child, first had no probs, thoughts, advice really appreciated. X

My mum said my little brother did this, that was just the time he'd had enough sleep so she just lived with it sad have you tried an earlier bedtime? I've just moved ds bedtime to 6pm as he was so tired and so far he is actually waking up a bit later than before, seems counter intuitive but might be worth a try?

How are the day naps?

My DD does this too. We just bring her into bed & give her a cuddle. She usually goes back to sleep within 1/2 hr or less.

Not sure what the solution is.. Maybe make bedtime 1hr later eg 10 mins later every day for a week?

If he goes to bed at 7pm then a 5.30am start seems pretty reasonable. Not all babies/children are capable of sleeping in 12 hour stretches.

I treated any waking before 7am as the middle of the night!!

Dd went through a phase of waking at this time, usually I would give her a drink, change her nappy and put her back to bed. if she cried would reassure but not get her up again, she would eventually go back to sleep,

By a year she slept 7 til 7.

Agree with poster who suggested putting to bed earlier, maybe 6.30 and monitor naps during the day.
