  • As long as she's not cranky/tired (i.e she isn't getting a good night's sleep) and she isn't snoring or gasping in her sleep, probably not. My son can be a very restless sleeper as well although I don't know that he's ever actually sat up in his sleep. When in doubt, call your doctor's office and ask about it.

  • My daughter did the same thing around that age. She's 19 1/2 mo now and doesn`t ne more. I'm convinced it had to do with teething and/or growing pains. Also, do you sleep in the same room? My daughter stopped doing that when we moved her 2 her own room. I don't know if that was coinsidense(sp) or not.
