One of the most common sleep problems we encounter is early waking...... Mums and dads just don't want to get woken up at 5.30am every day!
Elizabeth Pantley (author of the No Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers) says in her article on our website, some children really are larks and will always wake earlier than you would like. But many toddlers wake from habit and from parents inadvertently reinforcing the early waking....by letting the child in for a cuddle, making them a bottle etc etc.
So before you decide your toddler's early waking can not be changed and you are in for years of 5am wake-ups, we believe there are a number of things that can make a huge difference. And like any habits, the quicker you start to tackle them, the better.
