Earlier and earlier waking

My 21 month old DS2 has recently started waking at 5am! Do you think cutting his nap down to 45 mins may help?
I had to bring his nap back to 11.30-12.20 from 1.30 as he wouldn't settle at night. He goes to bed at 6.45-7pm.

has he ever done this before because my ds seems to go a few days doing this and then he'll go back to 6/6:30 again for a week or two...

i don't know how to remedy this. doesn't matter if ds has a nap or not, or what time he goes to bed, he still seems to wake up painfully early.

Yes Daddycool he has done it before but would go back to sleep again, now he just chats etc v loudly!

could it just be the earlier sunrises? has he got blackout curtains/blinds in his room?

Yes Starlover we have heavy duty blackout blinds but I cant control the birds who seem to be up v early at the moment.

We seem to have masses of crowing wood pigeons, so maybe they start up on his roof at 5am ish. I am starting to have that too tired to do anything feeling so I may try earplugs tonight as he is perfectly happy. What do you think about the nap times though?

I think it is just the time of year, I too have blackout blinds but ds (2.8) who has always slept well has become an early riser!
