I don't recommend meds unless absolutely necessary...that being said - does she use a pacifier? I have a 2 year old who still does and he wakes up sometimes and can't find it. Then he won't go back to sleep unless I go and get him. But it was becoming a pattern so I would find the paci for him, tuck him back in, and sit for a few minutes until he went back to sleep. It took a couple of nights and I decreased the time I sat there. Now he is back to sleeping all night again - with an occasional night of course. Ask me in a couple of months when he won't have the paci anymore and we'll see how that is going! lol Try not to talk to her - keep things low-key. Does she share a room? If not then just make her stay in her room til she falls back asleep - it might take some time but eventually it will be worth it.
