Lauren wakes up at 4:30. Four-thirty AM. Every day for the last week.
I've tried everything to get her to go back to sleep. Rocking, nursing, co-sleeping, crying, bouncing. Nothing. Works. I've not been putting her to bed any earlier. It's impossible to keep her up any later because she's hysterical with exhaustion by 7:30 pm. (And she isn't sleeping through the night yet either.)
My eyes don't open all the way until around 7AM. I've tried everything to get myself awake too. Coffee, exercise, lemon water, starting chores, everything. I wind up doing my 100's and drinking two cups of coffee before I even know what I'm doing. An hour later I find myself questioning if I did anything at all because I still feel sluggish and sleepy.
Unfortunately this also means I'm pretty cranky in the morning. I try to just not talk to anyone but my girls all wake up at full speed.
Help? Is there any way to get Lauren to sleep in a little?
