Early Morning Wakes
It’s that time of the year when early morning wakes seem to be an issue for most parents
I’m not an early morning person!
And for a person who enjoys their lie ins on the weekends, and add a baby who wants to
wake up for the day at 5 a.m, the two don’t match and sets everyone off to a bad start of the day!
That’s why I wanted to give you some tips on eliminating and dealing with early morning wakes:
Here they are:
1.) Make sure your child is not too hot or too cold and is wearing the appropriate clothes dependent on what the temperature is. Getting too hot or too cold will wake cause discomfort and result in a child waking.
2.) Get black out blinds and ensure the room is dark, even a little ray of light could cause a child to wake early
3.) Decide on a realistic time for you to start your day,
keeping in mind that 90% of babies will probably wake up
sometime between 6 and 7 a.m. (I personally decided that 6:30
a.m. was the earliest I could stand to get up.)
4.) If your child wakes up BEFORE you’re ready to start your
day treat it is a night wake.
