My five-year-old has always been a good sleeper. Getting her to bed is sometimes a challenge, but once there, she's usually down for the count.
Till the last week or so, that is. She's been waking up in the wee hours of the morning, wanting to crawl in bed with her dad and me. I'd be inclined to let her, but her dad is beyond one hundred percent against the idea, so it really isn't an option. I've just given her some crackers, turned on a soothing CD and her Dream Light, and put her back in bed. That worked till the last two nights, when she's started screaming, wanting the light on, wanting to get a pillow and blanket and sleep on our floor, saying her tummy is hurting, physically fighting not to get in bed.
There's been no big change in life for her lately. She's been eating about the same, nothing that I know of has scared her from TV, I can't figure it out. Has anybody else's kid gone through this? Any idea how I can restore nighttime peace?
