Advice getting toddler to sleep longer

8y, 5m agoPosted 8 years, 5 months ago
My 18 month old has always slept from about 7:30pm till anywhere from 7:30 - 8:30 am but in the last 3 weeks has started waking up at 6am. Don't think she's teething, doesn't seem to be over hungry, nothing has changed really. Not the hot water or anything disturbing her. Anyone got any ideas how I can get her to sleep longer?

Thanks in advance

My nearly 12 month old changed like that so i put her to bed a little later! She was 7.15 - 7.45 for ages then started waking bout 6! She normally went sleep at 8 so i started leaving her go till about 8.30 - usually makes the difference!!

6 is a good time of day to get up.........i get up with my 2 at that time. If i sleep any longer i feel i've missed half the day.

do you give her /him a nap in the afternoon? if so maybe try making it a shorter nap,
but yeah you have been spoilt my daughter has always done 7:00pm -to 5:30-6:00, but that was fine by me, i think as long as there going through the night theres nothing to worry about, :-D

All of mine have had different sleeping patterns over the years! My first was a nightmare, waking every few hours for the first 4 years, 2nd slept through for 10 hours from the age of 3 weeks and the 3rd hardly slept at all and now I have trouble getting him out of bed in a morning!
as said before either blackout blinds, or a little later to bed..........you have been blessed to have your daughter sleeping so well!

we had the same problem when the clocks changed recently - we got some blackout blinds from dunelm for £12.99 & everthing changed back to normal.

Also don't panic it could just be a phaze. AM takes periods of waking up crazy early for no reason. Usually lasts about a month then he reverts back to normal. I don't mind getting up early (well not much) in the summer but in the winter its a killer

sorry everyone for not replying earlier, had to get my son ready and take him swimming plus breakfasts etc.! Thanks for all the great info so far, will have a good read through and try some things. Rep and replies coming!

She cries initially, more of just an attention cry so I go in and she's wide awake with her arms open shouting "hewwo!" :-D

wow. read through everything, thanks for so much good advice and I guess maybe I should still feel lucky, I've got used to going to bed about 11:30 at night though so guess I'll have to go a bit earlier to make up for the lost sleep! Definitely going to try some blackout blinds. No ikea near here, will check see if they deliver or get the dunelm ones.
