Sleeping much past 7am throws the body’s circadian rhythm off, which deteriorates all sleep quality (day, if the child is napping, and night).

How do I stop my 6 month old waking at 5am?

Move her bedtime later by about 10 minutes each night until she’s hitting the hay about an hour later (or you reached your goal of her sleeping later).
