What are early morning wake ups?
Is your baby waking up at 5 am and not going back to sleep? There are many factors that can affect your baby waking up around 5 am.
I begin by asking my clients “How much sleep is baby getting in the day? (Age appropriate). How long does baby nap for? Does baby catnap?
Does baby seem tired when they wake up? Grizzly and unsettled?
Perhaps they are hungry? and not having a full feed? Are they too tired to latch on correctly?
When the baby has a full feed, it will help sustain them to sleep for longer stretches.
Does baby go to bed at a consistent time every night or does this vary?
How warm or cool is baby’s bedroom?
Is the bedroom light or is it dark?
Do you have external noise?
Is your baby over 16 weeks? Can they self-settle?
Understanding how much sleep your baby needs in the day time, and by supporting your baby in their awake and play times, can contribute greatly to how much sleep they get at night time.
If you need some advice and support then I can help you and your baby on their sleep journey.
