In desperate need of some help. My 14 month old has recently starting waking up crying early in the AM. She used to sleep until 6:30 and wake up happy and would chatter and talk to herself until I went in to get her. The past few weeks she's waking up at 5 (or some days earlier) and is very unhappy and will cry until I go into get her. Everything else has remained constant, naps and bedtime have been the same. The first couple of days I assumed it was teething but she hasn't cut any new teeth since. Then I figured it could be developmental since she's working on all sorts of new skills. In the beginning I was optimistic that it was a temporary phase. Now it's been happening for about 3 weeks and I am scared this is the new norm. It's hard to start our day off on the wrong foot like that. Has anyone else experienced this or have any advice/feedback to offer? TIA!
