how to get your toddler to sleep later

my 2 year old wakes up at 5 am every day. it doesnt matter what time we put him to bed , that is when he wakes up. i have tried giving him a later bedtime, but he still wakes up at 5 and is extra cranky becuase he has missed the extra sleep. does anyone have any ideas?

My son was like this too. (He's 8 now and still a very early riser). It made no difference what time he went to bed, he was always up with the crows. I use to put him down for a nap earlier in the morning to try and make up for it, because I found he would get cranky as well. Even today he is an early riser and I think there are many times he could still go for a nap to make up some extra sleep, although he'd never go for that at his age, LOL.
