Hey everyone, my LO is 7 months and she goes to bed at 7. I give her a bottle at 10 then she sleeps till 7. Or used to be the case. She's started waking more at 6:20. Is there anything I can do to try and get a little bit more of a lie in? She eats very well during the day...

Don't want to sound negative ... But ... This sounds FANTASTIC for a 7 month old!! When my DS1 was 7 months, he would go to bed at 8ish, have a dreamfeed at 11 and be up again before waking for the day at 5. Can you go to bed a bit earlier? Personally, I would class before 6am as early. 11+ hours sleep at this age is fab. Congrats!

Oh really? Maybe I'm expecting too much then!
Think I do need to sleep earlier, it's just that as I'm a single mum the evenings are my only 'me time'. Oh well a little less of that is worth the sleep! Thanks smile

Jealous! Yes that's definitely good as pp said. I have a 6 month old who goes down at 7:30pm and I'm extremely lucky if he makes it past 5:45am, and that's not to mention the hourly wakings between 11-3. Not hunger, just wanting comfort. Is LO crawling yet? People keep telling me they sleep better once they are mobile and tire themselves out, though not sure how true that is.
