A used to wake generally between 7 and 8. It slowly got earlier to around 6:30-7am but now she is waking between 5:20 and 5:30 most mornings. She is so tired and grumpy and doesn't seem ready to be awake! The time she goes to bed doesn't make much difference either. I wish she would wake a little later! I hope this is just a phase but wonder if there is anything I can do to help. I don't think it's hunger although it could be as she has a big appetite but has decent sized dinners and I have just reintroduced the occasional small cup of cold milk before bed if she doesn't have it in the afternoon or if she hasn't eaten much dinner (when trying new foods) What times do your 2 year olds go to bed, wake and do they nap still?

6.30-7.30 fo bed and wake up 6.30-7.30 lol. Yes she still naps about 2 hours

About 12 hours she will sleep at night , although daytime naps can be a bit hit and miss, average an hour but some days she wont have the daytime nap at all.
has anything changed since it got lighter in the mornings and if so would a blackout blind help?

No I can't think of anything that's changed really. A tends to go to sleep between 7:30 and 8 ish, 7 is the earliest, but even recently she wouldn't sleep and went to sleep at 10:15 and woke at 5:30. She will nap through the day sometimes. When she was a baby she was a fab sleeper but things have changed in toddlerhood! Every week or so we have a night where she wakes around midnight and doesn't go back to sleep until around 4.
She has wooden a venetian blind, blackout material blind on top of that and blackout curtains!

Bed I'd say 7.15 -8ish. Waking 6ish, occasionally 7 (6.15 today). He naps on sofa or in the car (then carried to sofa if really tired). He never naps in bed anymore. He can sleep half an hour one day, and 2 hours another. I think it depends on what he has been doing.
Can she entertain herself at all when she wakes? Is she in a cot or bed?

Bed is normally about 8 and she can wake from anything between 4.30am!!!! And 6.30. D has never had a perfect sleep routine

Bed at 7pm, wakes up between 7- 7:30am. His average nap time is around 2 - 3 hours.
This week, his sleep has been all over the place. Crashing between 4:30 - 5pm, after a 30 min nap in the day, then waking at 8am. He has been really grumpy.
Do they have a 2 yr growth spurt?

I does 7.30 till 7.30 and naps for 2 hours max in the day. She still has 8 to 10 oz of milk before bed after dinner at 5ish.
Does she sleep better when she has the milk? I hadn't thought to stop the milk any time soon.

My little boy is 26 months old and sleeps from 8pm through till 8am/9am depending on how tired he is but he doesn't have a nap at all through the day unless we are out and about in the car.

Ben goes to sleep around 7.30 - 8 (usually the latter!). He wakes at around 8.30 although if the blackout blind is up I usually have to wake him at 9.30! He doesn't nap any more.
