My ds is 10 months old. He keeps waking at 4:30ish for the day.

His routine is as follows:
7oz Milk on waking (currently 4:30am- I try to resettle him after this but no way he'll go back to sleep, I feed him in dark room, no stimulation)
8am breakfast (weetabix)
9-10:30 morning nap
11 - milk (takes between 3-7oz)
12-lunch (has plenty)
1:30 afternoon nap (1-1.5hrs)
3:30 milk (takes 3-7oz)
5pm dinner (has plenty)
6:30pm 7oz milk and bed.

Then sleeps until 4:30 when he wakes for the day.

Should I cut down his daytime nap?

Any advice, I am a walking zombie and also have a demanding 3yr old to look after- this has to change, but how?

Try making him warmer in the night. Add an extra layer.

I have recently just moved to long-sleeved vest + sleepsuit + 2.5 tog sleeping bag because early mornings was waking my DD.

I'd also work on pushing that bedtime forward to 7.30pm ish. Aside from bedtime, the rest of your routine looks perfectly fine.

Dear me. "were" is what I meant, of course.

Thanks for the suggestion, tonight we put him down a little later-7pm. Will add a long sleeved vest if that doesn't work-he currently has short sleeved vest, sleep suit and sleeping bag.

Watching with interest my 10 month old also wakes around 430/5 every day. Did it work for your baby, moving the Bedtkme later?

It's very hit and miss. He now goes to bed between 6:30 and 7. Last night he woke at 3:30 so I gave him milk and he resettled by 4 until 7. If he wakes later eg 4:30am he doesn't normally resettle. I try to restrict his morning nap to 1hr and pm nap to 1.5 hrs.
