Waking up TOO early!

My son just turned 2. Up until he was about 18-20 mos, he would sleep almost every night from 7pm to 7am. Since then, he has been getting up earlier and earlier. Now it is anywhere from 530-630. We have tried altering his bedtime (now 745-800), giving him more milk before bed even tried Tylenol thinking it might be teeth or something, but nothing seems to work!! Anyone have any ideas?

Yeah, that is what I am finding out...he wakes up about the same time, regardless what time he goes to bed! I thought about the blinds too, but lately he has been waking up when it is still dark...so I am not sure that is the problem!! He might be getting his 2 year molars. I don't feel anything yet, but this seem to happen when he gets teeth! I hope, if it is, they come soon and he can get back to sleeping:) Thanks for the help!

It could just be his internal clock changing, or because it is now sunnier earlier the sun could be waking him! Try black out blinds in his room. Making his bedtime later won't help..they tend to still wake up at the same time, only grumpier because they haven't had enough sleep!
