Dealing with a baby that wakes up too early
Are you tired of waking earlier than usual because your baby wakes up too early? Here are some useful tips to help you out!
Is your baby constantly waking up too early? Here are some tips to help you deal with an early riser!
1. Figure out why your child is waking up too early
It's important for moms and dads to first figure out why their child is waking up too early. Maybe they're hearing animals outside, or perhaps someone in your house has an alarm that's way too loud.
Finding out the reason why your baby wakes up too early is important in helping fix the problem.
2. Change your baby's bedtime
Surprisingly, if your child sleeps too late, then they might wake up too early in the morning. Try moving your child's bedtime about 20 minutes earlier, and see if that makes a difference. You can try moving it in 20-minute increments until your child finally stops waking up too early.
3. Naps are also a factor
Babies who take short naps, or a lot of naps throughout the day would find it hard to sleep at night, which can subsequently cause them to wake up earlier than usual.
4. Just wait for them to get back to sleep
If your child wakes up too early, and they're not really crying or doing anything else, you can simply leave them alone in their crib. They'll usually fall asleep soon after without any problems. It's also a good way for them to learn how to fall asleep all by themselves.
