    This week alanna has been going to bed at 4 or 4:30! By 430 its a full out screaming tantrum she wants to goto bed! She has a good nap in the morning, and another one early afternoon (though this is enforced rather than her really wanting too), but cant stay up! :wall2: She got up at 8:30 this morning, but other mornins this week has been getting up at 6am, and thats AWFUL!!!

    Anyone help?

    Maybe she's just having a growth spurt and needs the sleep? Is she ok otherwise,not under the weather at all?

    I struggle to get my LO to nap during the day and he's only 6 weeks. He hasn't had any more than 3 hours each day since he was born (he's good at nights tho)

    Tbh hun if she's needing that much sleep I'd let her have it! Is she ok in other ways? Has anythibg changed like started walking or anythibg? I'd be tempted to pop to the doctors as it's a he'll of a lot of sleep for a baby xx

    That's a lot of sleep - G has 3 naps and then sleeps 7-6am. Sometimes he's awake as early as 5 and if i'm lucky its 0630. Agree with the others that maybe it's a growth spurt - if it was me I would wake her up again at 5pm for dinner, bath, bed and then try to do proper bed time later and then maybe she'll sleep later.
