Why is my little one waking early?

Are you feeling frustrated and confused over these early wakes? 

This guide will help you identify the reasons for these wakes, and know exactly how to tackle them!

10 Step process

I carefully take you through ten steps to identify the cause of your little one waking early, and explain how to resolve each one. The answer to why you have early wakeups may surprise you!

What is considered an early morning wake?

An early morning wake is when your child wakes up before they are getting the ideal amount of sleep they need overnight.

Babies and toddlers need 11-12 hours so do the math here for your little one! If they are going down at 6 pm at night and waking at 5 am then they've actually achieved 11 hours which is a reasonable expectation!

Here at Just Love Sleep, we deem anything between 5-6 am as an early morning wake. If you are seeing any early 4's on the clock, then this is still considered a night wakeup and needs to be treated accordingly.

Meet  Cherie...

I'm a mum of 4 and I totally understand how hard and exhausting parenting is!


I’m super passionate about supporting parents in the hard times of parenthood, hence why I became an Internationally Certified Infant and Child Sleep Consultant. Often half the battle when it comes to sleep issues is needing someone to bounce ideas off. You can’t focus when you are sleep deprived, you may try to read endless sleep books or sign up for online sleep programs, but really, you need someone to come alongside you, listen, hold your hand and say...

If you need further help with your little one's sleep, from sleep regressions & early wake ups, night wake ups and problems with naps, to recommendations on sleep products such as black out blinds, swaddles and dummies, send me a message. 

I know we can turn your life around and enable solid sleep for your little ones. Sleep deprivation robs us of those parenting joys and our little ones CAN sleep well! I can't wait to work with you and set your family up with good sleepers for life.

Together we can get your little one to Just Love Sleep!

you can do this!
