Re: NEW MEMBER Morning Crying - Desperate

Don't try to cover the cage with a heaver fabric that isn't breathable FYI--- A comforter or something could smother your bird, so do buy or make a black-out cover with breathable fabric.

Re: NEW MEMBER Morning Crying - Desperate

Cover the cage when you put the bird to bed. Should solve the problem. Uncover in the morning.

Re: NEW MEMBER Morning Crying - Desperate

Wow I never thought of just waking myself up earlier to feed her before she gets upset and then going back to sleep. That's something I will have to try. Thank you!

Re: NEW MEMBER Morning Crying - Desperate

Thank you all for these replies!

Sorry I am still learning the how to post here so I think I'm doing an overall reply right now.

I have tried the blackout sheets and it FREAKS her out so I'd rather not go down that road.

I would love to have her sleep in a separate room that would be quiet at night for her but it's me and a roommate in a small two-bedroom apartment. Life will get better when I get a house and can put her in an office for sleep time ��.

I think after looking at everyone's suggestions this is a matter of me meeting my birb halfway and trying to have her maybe stay up a LITTLE later at night and have me wake up earlier so she still gets her 10 hours but isn't put too far off her routine. And if it gets hard for me to do this I think I'm going to try what a few suggested with waking up solely to uncover her and feed her and then letting myself go back to bed. She's really not noisy at all when she's just hanging out.

And can I just say WOW this forum is AMAZING and people on here are so helpful and supportive. Thank you all so much!

Re: NEW MEMBER Morning Crying - Desperate

I can affirm that life is MUCH easier in a house--- I was in a 1br for a bit and while I didn't have a roommate, it did make things more difficult when boyfriend came over etc-- because bird went to bed early etc. Generally, I have to wake up early for work, so I never sleep in anyway, but there is something to be said about having a house.
