  • i checked her temp and its fine..i tried cuddling with her and she said shes not tired then goes off to find toys but i put them all up and so thats another reason why shes mom had tried talking to her over the phone and she wouldnt listen to her grandma she just told her grandma that she cant i dont know what her problem is...i would give her a bath but she already had one at 9.....and the milk she wont drink it plain she has to have something in it to drink it.... ive got a major head ache and just so frustrated

  • Maybe just put her in her room for 20 min & let her cry it out. She could just be doing it for attention. Is her screaming from just being stubborn or does is sound like she may be in pain? If it sounds like she could be in pain I'd take her to the dr. & get her appendix & whatever checked out. Otherwise if she's just being naughty, sounds like she needs a spanking and to know who is boss, especially when she is waking up other family members. Is she still teething, maybe some tylenol and orajel and back to bed. Good luck, hope you get some sleep!
