Early waking toddler advice
P is nearly 19 months and we have been lucky in that she's been a fab sleeper, going 12/13 hours on average a night since she was 10 weeks old. She isjusta girl who needs lots of sleep, she has only just gone down to one 2 hour nap a day, from two 2 hour ones up until a few weeks ago.
She goes to bed at 6.30/7ish at latest and usually wakes up about the same time in the morning. However, over the last few weeks she has been creeping earlier and earlier....this morning she wanted to getup at 4.30. Managed to put her back for another hour but then she was pretty determined to get up. We've always been very strict with night wakings and if she does wake in the night she doesn't even leave her room and always goes straight back to sleep.
The mornings are different though as she just wants to get up. She grabs at her sleeping bag poppers and shouts 'off' and points at the door.
It's dark at that time now so it's not thelight waking her. We moved house at the start of August and it's sort of coincided with that BUT her new room is further from us so she's less disturbed etc. It hasn't affected her sleep at all in any other way so i don't think it's the move.
Any tips/ideas/thoughts? I thought about pushing her bedtime back but she is SO tired by 6.30 that even 7 is beyond her most evenings. I don't think we can physically keep her up much longer. I know people have used the grow clock thingies successfully with older toddlers but i don't think she'd understand that yet.
