Hon, you can give her some things she can do to occupy herself, and teach her healthy boundaries. Be kind but firm.

Make sure that she stays up a bit later at night so she can sleep in easier. You could explain that mom needs extra sleep so let's think of ways for you to be awake and help mommy get her rest. Ask her questions to see what ideas she can come up with on her own. Make this about grown-up things so she feels good about it.

You could set a clock in her room to go off at the time you plan to get up.
Give her a list of quiet things she can do on her own.
If she is always hungry right away in the morning, have a snack waiting for her in the fridge or kitchen.

Whatever you choose, use that as a tool to encourage teach her to self-entertain and that we all have different needs and desires and we can respect what others need. make this a fun learning experience. Don't be irritable or angry, just be gentle, firm and teach her.
