    These are really great tips! Thank you so much. I have been reading your site for a while now and I have found it useful many times. However, I’m at a standstill now. Our 22 month old commonly wakes up at 5 am and I cannot figure out why or how to prevent it. When we transitioned him from 2 naps to one, originally, I kept his bedtime the same (8:30)until I read that the bedtime may need to be moved up earlier. So I have been experimenting with earlier bedtimes little by little but he goes to be at 7pm now and still wakes up at 5! I have tried feeding him more before bed, slowly taking away his sound machine at night, and keeping things consistent. I’m lost at what to do. Please help!
