misdee: a far from normal MN response for ya...

If it's really 6:15 every day, is there a chance she wakes up when the heating comes on ? (pump noise / change in temp / radiator noise).

dw sometimes wakes up after the timer / thermostat has forced the rad next to our bed on and becomes very hot (her side).

or perhaps a neighbour goes out/ starts the car at that time?

i thought this might be the case when my girl was waking at 6.30 ( She now wakes at!!!!!) because thats when the heating was coming on, so I changed the timer so the boiler started at 7.00am and it didn't make ANY bloody DIFFERENCE!

Schmauskin: Maybe you didn't twiddle the knob to the left of the red thing enough

I can sympathise. My dds went through a phase of waking at 4.30am!! Even after a late night. The going to bed late trick never works with us. I find I'm better off getting the girls to bed earlier and they sleep longer and then I feel like I've had a bit of a break. Never thought I'd say it but they are getting better. Have had a few school mornings where I've had to wake them up!!!

my dd wakes at 5.50am (ish) every doesnt matter what activities we do the previous day...or how late i put her to bed its STILL that time that she gets up. Am at the end of my tether with being woken up by her going to toilet/switching her light on/singing/crashing toys about. No amount of asking will make her quieten down or go back to sleep. If i turn the light off she gets up minutes later & turns it back on..she thinks i dont hear her.
How old is ur dd misdee? Is she waking up cos she has lots of toys etc in her room & is mayb thinking 'oh i'll get up & play with such & such a toy' ?? This thought has crossed my mind with my dd..but i havent been horrible enough (YET) 2 take all th etoys from her room to test the theory!

Hi misdee

This has long puzzled me the internal alarm clocks of little kids. My dd wakes at 7am regardless of when she goes to sleep. Sometimes it's been as late as 10pm and she's still up at 7. It's not noise-specific as she also does it when we stay at grandparents etc.
