This is something we are asked about A LOT. There are a few factors that can be linked to early rising including late bedtimes, not enough sleep during the day and nap timings. By completing one of our sleep diaries we are able to gain a holistic view of your little one’s sleeping patterns over the week and together make a tailored plan.
If you think about it, when we are stressed, we often wake early in the morning. It is all linked to hormones, in this case, cortisol which is known as the stress hormone. This is the hormone which wakes us up in the morning gradually increasing over night. Cortisol suppresses the sleep hormone, melatonin, and in return if we go to bed stressed this cross over point happens much earlier causing us to wake up early. It’s the same for babies and children.
