  • does it seem like she needs something? is she perhaps too hot or cold? is she around a lot of stimulation before bedtime or given a snack before bedtime ? is she napping at all? I hope you've caught some zzz's since writing this post!

  • When was her iron last checked? Kids can get Restless Leg Syndrome from low iron. Took us 5 years to get a proper diagnosis. Our son would get up several times in the night & rock on his hands & knees. For years we were told it was normal self soothing. WRONG! Now he's on an iron supplement & sleeps through the night.
