my daughter is 15months old and wakes up every day at 6.30 . when is she going to sleep more????
My daughter is my natural alarm she wakes at 7 every day. I put her down at 9 though but she never varies more then 30 minutes. I think in order for you to really change is wake up time you would have to alter his entire days schedule for at least two weeks....otherwise he will fall right back into it.

It's so hard to give advice on sleep as every baby is so different. My son will sometimes wake up at 5.30 and sometimes and 6.30 but thats the latest... I've kind of got use to it now though as thats exactly what my older son does too and he's 26 months. I didn't sleep untill 7 am untill I was 7 years old so It's really hard to say exactly when. My son use to wake up at 4am not so long ago and I have now just reduced his nap to one a day around 11am-12/12.30 but I wake him at the latest at 12.30 so he doesn't sleep too long. He's then normally in bed at 6.30 so a lot of the time he does 12 hours which I can't really complain about, and it also means that my husband and me get some prescious time together in the evening.

that's what they do...Mine is usually 5-5:30 am...Everything I have read and all my friends and sisters say they will continue to be early-birds until they are school-aged (when you want them to get up early...). As long as she is sleeping well (10-12 hours straight) at night, you really have little control over this one. I go to bed early and roll with it...:)

Oh I feel for you! My lil son was doing that too! He seems to have stopped now *knock on wood* He goes to bed between 930 and 1030 now. He wakes between 8 and 10. At night I give him a sippy cup of water that hecan reach off the night stand when he needs it. We also nap (34 weeks preg) from 1 to 3 or 2 to 4. somewhere in there. I also use a fan and have blacked out the window. Good luck to you!

It could never end. But I find putting my son to Bed at 8:30pm Sometimes helps. As a mom Of 6 6:30pm is not a uncommon time. Babies usually at that Age sleep 12 hrs or so at night. Will cut it to 8-10 depending on how many naps durning the day they take. I find putting him for a 11am Nap get him to bed earlier. Also going for a walk in the evening or the park Will tire them out more.

i know it seems a bit harsh but be thankful in way..... my boy wakes up at either 5:15 am or 6:15 am on the dot every morning!!? Even if I keep him up later nothing will make him sleep in! Maybe when they're teenagers they will!! lol

My 15 month old also wakes up at 6:30 every day. It's like she has an internal alarm clock. I have dark shades and a fan to try and help, so she no longer does 5am, but still the 6:30am. I put her to bed at 9 so I like her to sleep till about 8am or so. I think she wakes up at 6:30 just to breast feed because she usually wakes up crying, then I feed her, then she goes back to sleep for an hour or two. When she wakes up the second time, she is usually in a much better mood and sometimes babbles and plays in her crib because she is fully rested. What time does your daughter go to bed? Does she wake up happy and rested or is she cranky and maybe would go back to sleep with help? I need to break my daughter of the 6:30 wake up and feeding but not sure how. I know she does it for comfort cuz it's the only feeding she still gets except for before nap and bed. But if I don't feed her, she would not go back to sleep and would be up at 6:30 every day too!

My 15 month old gets up @ 5:30! But that's usually the 1st nursing of the day and she usually goes back to sleep for another hour or two after she's done. So...yeah, I think that some kids are just early risers, like the one mom said! =)

6:30am sounds like heaven to me - my 15 month old wakes up around 5:15 ot 5:30am every day and we have black-out curtains - last week we got a 5:45 and we were so happy. We have done eveything - changed bedtimes, shortened and lengthened naps, it just stays the same. It's the same with the 14 month old across the hall, so sometimes we just go to the playground at 6:30!. I think kids wake up when they will. I hear during winter many younger kids tend to sleep a little later.
I'm not saying it's not hard to wake up early - it is, especially when both parents work fulltime, but I think after months of frustration, we've just given in to it and try to look on the bright side - we get to spend a lot of time with her before work! It's not forever, I tell myself, this is just what it is right now.

The short answer is probably never! Sorry! lol. I have 3 boys 5.5, 4 and 15 months. None of them sleep late! In fact, the older 2 have a clock in their room and strict instructions that they are not to leave their room until 6:00!!!! And trust me, they need those instructions, or they'd be up at 5:30! Some kids are early risers, and you just have to make the best of it!

You could try some white noise, such as a fan or CD playing nature sounds, and make sure the shades are drawn - room is dark. The sprinklers turning on was waking my son too early. so I adjusted that. Is anyone else up making even slight noise at that time?
I've started shutting my son's door at night and using the monitor.
Will she go back to sleep after giving her some milk? She may just be awakened by hunger.
hope you get some more sleep soon!

My son also wakes up at about 6:30 every morning. I'm just glad he is on a schedual! I did read Dr. Ferber's book on sleep, though (his schedual got messed up sleeping somewhere else for a week), and if I'm remembering this right 15 month olds should be sleeping from about 8-6, and then with 2 naps during the day, with one of the naps being fazed out at about this time, making the 1 nap they take becoming longer. But they should still be getting the same amount of sleep whether it is in these 3 increments, or broke up in any way. So, I guess I think that 6:30 is about on target. Sorry. Maybe someone else will have better news for you!
