my ds is 17 weeks on tuesday and used to wake up between 7-8 everyday, mostly at 7:30. well this past week he has been waking at 5:30-6am! wide awake, babbling. He has been going to bed around 8 before and this week it has been 7-7:30 as he is either grumpy or missed his last nap. i wouldn't think that a 30 -60 max (min) earlier time would cause him to wake upalmost 2 hrs earlier. i though that they say that a earlier bedtime won't make them wake up earlier? that it is a myth to say a leter bedtime will have them wake up later?

have you tried closing the drpes or getting some to keep out light and noise? Also, I heard that if they don;t get enough nap time during the day it causes them to have a hard time to fall asleep--or have a good sleep...?

ya i heard that as well, but his naps are the same since day 1 except today he has fought every single nap! his naps are always 30-60 min and no longer! i keep all lights off, door closer,, etc once he is done eating he starts babbling, i lie him down and he continues. 15 min later he will start to cry, so i gie him his soother and he just spits it out.

bath before bedtime...my mommy gav me that tip...a nice warm bath has some magical power that makes them completely relax and dose off.

smilefull, my mom told me the same thing and it does work! Also Ava wakes up at 6:30 or 7 to eat, but then I rock her back to sleep while nursing her and that seems to work. she gets up for good between 8 and 9:30 She goes to bed between 9 and 10 pm She is 6 months old. Anyway, try putting lo to bed a tad later and give a bath before bedtime. if all else fails, remember that if you rock them long enough, they will eventually fall back to sleep!

My lo goes to bed any time between 8:30 & 10:30 usually... but he always wakes at 7:30. He doesn't cry but I can hear him moving & fussing a little. I take him out of the ba__sinet & bring him into my bed & we snuggle for another 2 hours.

I heard that also, put to bed earlier sleep later. It doesn't work in my case either. She has her off and on days. This weekend she would wake up around 6:30 or 7 but she would go back to sleep, this morning though she woke up at 5:15 babbling but I just let her cause hpefully she owuld fall back to sleep, well she probably would have if I would have let her for longer but I went ahead and went in to feed her since it was almost time for me to wake up.
