    Posted: 05 Dec 2016 at 7:45am
My baby normally wakes up between 5:30 and 6am, and by the time 8 am comes around she's falling asleep on my shoulder so I have to put her to sleep. I've been bringing all the routine times for a 7month old forward an hour to cater for this earlier rising.

Is this the right thing to do? I've tried keeping her awake until 9 but she gets overtired and only sleeps for 45mins.

What should I be doing?

Hi Caitlin :


Thank you for your post and welcome to the Save Our Sleep® ® Online Advice. This in an area to say thank you to Tizzie, the Save Our Sleep® ® team and the other members of the forums, and unfortunately not a place where you can seek advice for your baby, toddler or family.


To be able to guide you accurately we need lots of very detailed information, so we do need to ask that if you would like some support and advice that you become a member. The Save Our Sleep® ® Online Advice is an area where parents are able to come to support each other in a safe environment. You can post any questions you have, and you may also find your question is already covered in previous forum threads. The Save Our Sleep® ® Online Advice is closely monitored by the Save Our Sleep® ® moderating team who read every post and a member of Tizzie’s team will step in if incorrect, misleading or potentially unsafe advice is given.


Here is a link to the membership information for you to consider . The annual fee for these memberships enables Save Our Sleep® ® to continue offering this advice service and to maintain a safe online community for all parents.


To help you with getting started on resolving your little ones early rising you can access a free copy of Tizzie's Safe bedding guide here - . Tizzie has found 70% of sleep problems are due to babies being not warm enough to sleep well, so this is always something we look at first when helping babies settle and sleep well. It is important that you stick to the routine sleeps times, as putting your baby down early will just reinforce the early rising as explained in the baby book on page 192, so it is very important that you work on keeping your baby awake until the routine sleep time of 9.20am for her age. If you are able to become a member of the Online Advice area we will be able to help you work through this in more detail though.


I will now lock this topic. If you have further questions about memberships please email .


Kind regards,
