Ladies, I need your input! My DD is 20 months old and in the last two weeks, she has started waking up at 5:45 a.m. EVERY morning. She won't go back to sleep and any attempt to lay her back down in her crib is met with a screaming fit. She's up, she's awake and she's ready to start the day!
Background: she goes to bed around 7:30p every night and before two weeks ago, she'd sleep until 6:30-7a each morning. Then, all of a sudden, BAM, we're up with the chickens. She has room-darkening curtains in her room (it faces east) so I don't think it's the light that's waking her up. I've tried to keep her up a little later but #1, she gets really fussy because she's tired, and #2, she still wakes up at the same time.
Thoughts? Is this just a phase or should I plan to be up with the sun every morning from here on out?
