Our 14 month old will wake up between 1 and 2 times per night and sometimes will wake between 5 and 5:30. I KNOW she needs more sleep and despite our efforts (we've tried many things to get her to sleep another hour), she likes to just cuddle in bed and nurse, but she never actually falls back asleep. By the time 7:15 rolls around, she's yawning...by the time 8 or 8:30 rolls around, she's ready for a nap. My hope is that like everything else, this is a passing phase. But I'm wondering for those of you who have early risers, how do you spend your morning? Do you just hang out at home in your pajamas until that first nap? Do you try to push your baby to stay awake until after lunch (personally, I can't imagine she'd make it that long)? I usually play with her, make breakfast, turn the news on or some music, bake, check email, play some more...occasionally we'll take a brisk walk or head to the grocery store.
