Going back to work...baby stop sleeping?

I just went back to work this week. I work nights and my husband works days, so we switch off with our DD. She use to sleep until 9am, and now she has been waking up at 6am, like one day this week she woke up at 6am and now won't sleep later than that. So now I am only getting about 4hrs of sleep a night rather than 7. Any idea to what would cause this. Her schedule has been the same other than I am not home at nights. Could she just be getting up early in the morning because she misses me (she is 14 months old).

 She may just be needing less sleep...

my ds started getting up earlier at that age...he use to get up at  9 as well and since he was about 15 months he started getting up around 6:30, I think it's just not needing as much sleep at night.
