Since we have transitions DD from her cot to big bed (about 5 weeks ago) she has gone from waking at 6.30am to waking at 5.30am. She also used to have a reasonable day sleep while in her cot (hour & 1/2) and now it's about 45mins. Bed time is around 6.45pm

She's tired very soon after she's woken up in the morning and normally falls asleep for her nap between 9.30am and 10.30am
We've been using a gro clock to try keep her in her room when she wakes to no success. I'm not sure what to do next or how to get that extra hour back in the morning that she obviously needs!

No suggestions, sounds like you are doing what you can. Sadly I read recently it can take up to 12 weeks for a child to adjust to their 'big bed' and get their sleep patterns back to normal. We haven't attempted it yet with our eldest still in his cot original.gif Good luck!

might take her a bit more time to adjust!! my 25mth old is still in a cot, I want to keep him there as long as possible lol His also been very cranky and tired lately might be that time of the year

I would just stick with the bed and it should sort out soon enough.
DD1 dropped her day sleep when we moved her but it was only a week or so then she went back to the day sleep for a while.

Thanks for the replies original.gif

She is sleeping very well in her big bed and doesn't get up at all during the night. We'll definitely stick it out as we need the cot for this bub.

I'd just keep at it, Holly is much the same, but I go with it. She has improved a bit, but we generally have an earlier day nap (say 10am) and earlier bedtime (about 6.30pm) to compensate. I'd rather the early bedtime with a new baby anyway given what turds they are in the early evenings as newborns! At least with the toddler in bed you can tend to baby uninterrupted original.gif
