If you added up all of the sleep Lilah gets (usually) on a daily basis, how much does it add up to? Naps + night time (minus the feedings/night wakings)

I don't think pushing bed time later will work, but you could always try.

This is going to sound counter-intuitive, but maybe try an earlier bed time. If she's not getting enough sleep (total), she could be overtired, which is contributing to the early wake-ups.

I guess you'll have to experiment and see.

Also, does she have a mobile over her crib? We have one on Claire's. It's battery-operated, and gives off soft blue light, and has an option for white noise. If she wakes up and is wide awake, I turn on the mobile and the vibrating pad. I've watched her on the monitor, and she stares up at the mobile for a while until she falls back asleep. It's, like, HYPNOTIZING.
