4 month old waking for the day @4:30am - sleep regression?

Up until 2 weeks ago my 4 month old would finally wake up for the day at 06:30, this is now 04:30. Is this the dreaded 4 month sleep regression? Do you have experience of this and is she ever likely to sleep until 6am again? This is worse than when she was a new born....

flowersHi Happy...I'm up too with my wide awake 6 month old! He's always awake for the day about 4.30 to 5! No advice I'm afraid, but just so you know you're not alone

The clocks also went back fairly recently, might be a factor (in how many hours it feels like she's now waking earlier?). 6:30am would now be 5:30am?

Thanks - good to know I'm not alone.

I thought if it was the clocks she would have adjusted by now - all of my friends babies have......

I know what you mean...I'm insanely jealous of those that have babies who sleep until 6.30 or later! I end up going to bed before 9pm now knowing I'll be up stupidly early!

This happened with us at 4 months but didn’t last long. Hang in there!

Thank you, fingers crossed x

My baby did this for a bit at about 5 months old. I treated it like a night waking and tried to feed back to sleep. The good news is it didn't last long at all, maybe 2 weeks or so. Today she slept in til 7.20am! Hang on in there. My baby was in her own room at that point so I could switch the white noise and night light on and leave her to it a bit while I went back to bed and dozed, which helped. It was still rough though!

All of my DDs did this.
My 2 year old is still up at 4.30 ready for her day. My 10 and 3 year olds are a little bit later, but by 6am all of my children will be awake. Hope you LO starts to sleep in a little later for you

No improvement yet - in fact worse, now waking at 3 and not returning to sleep and I am feeding all I can.....

I've read on another thread that this might now be the norm?! Is this true? Please say her sleep will improve?
