Should I be putting my baby to bed later?

My baby is now just over one year old. He has been sleeping through the night on most nights.. However he wakes up soo early ( 5-5:30 a.m). I give him a bath at 7:00 p.m. then to bed at 7:30 p.m. He has two 1 hour naps morning and afternoon at daycare. I am wondering what time other people are putting their 1 year olds to bed and if they are sleeping longer than this? He wakes up screaming and crying, and wonder if he is teething or what? We are very lucky when he sleeps until 6 a.m. Advice?

Well what time do you want him to get up? I would adjust his bedtime by 15 or 30 minute increments for a couple of days each until he is getting up closer to the time you want him to get up. If you try putting him to bed, say, an hour and a half later all of a sudden, you're going to have trouble.
