I need some advice please. I have a 4 year old boy who likes to get up early lately, I mean really early as in 4am.

He wakes up and plays in his room quietly so we dont realise he is up. He has been very tied during the day for the last few weeks, he no loner has a day nap so very grumpy. We first thought he was waking about 6am because that was the first time we heard him but my husband has been waking and checking on him only to find him wide awake. We tell him to go back to bed when we catch him and settle him back down. Why would he have started doing this? Any tips on how to stop him waking so early? I asked him to come into our room when he wakes but he doesnt. I want him to be able to enjoy our activities duing the day without being so tired. 4am is not a time I want to get up to do activities :(

  • Hi, I had issues similar to this when my son was 3. I need up changing my son bed time a bit later so he wasn’t waking earlier and I found if I put him in a pram and go for a walk just after lunch he would have an hr sleep. Maybe try after lunch times asking hik to lay down on the lounge and watch a DVD something of his so then he’s quiet and he may just fall asleep and also maybe putting his bedtime bk about an hr if nothing changes maybe speak to ur doctor about it. Good luck
