  • You need to try and get her to go back to sleep. If she is cranky that soon after waking then she didn't sleep enough.

  • My son wakes in the morning between 7-8am. Hes alwasy happy when he wakes! But sometimes he also wakes at 5am n is kidda crankey too, I just hold him in my arms, give him a bottle, n rock him back to sleep. Always seems to work for me!

  • give her a bottle at five (in the dark) and put her back down. don't even talk to her. mine used to do that and then they'd go back to sleep until about 9
