Every night for the last week my daughter who will be three years old in September has been waking up between 1-2 a.m. and staying up until 4-5 a.m. She shares a room with us in our 1 bedroom home, so she wakes both me and my husband up. She cries for me, and if I leave the room to seek some kind of sleep before work the next day, she goes into a screaming tantrum. She's waking the neighbors. I'm a zombie. I'm to the point of wanting to just curl up and die in a corner I'm so tired. It was not even this bad when she was a newborn. If I stay with her, she wants out of her crib (she's still in a crib with a crib tent out of necessity for safety), and doesn't want to get put back.
I'm the only one working, my husband lost his job almost a year ago, she is still in daycare part time. I'm the primary caretaker though, she's mostly bonded to me. Short of giving her benadryl to sleep which I wont, I'm at a loss. Help!

Next question in Toddlers (1-2)
how long do you leave your 1 1/2-2 year old alone?
