  • Is she sick or in pain? Could she have had a bad dream and is scared to go to sleep? Do you ever sleep with her? I think I would bring her to my bed and cuddle up with her and see if we can't both get some sleep. Hang in there!

  • Does she have any kind of ear ache, or soreness anywhere? She maynot be able to get comfortable, or....she could be to the point of over-tiredness. Is she still active, or a little groggy? If she's a little groggy, but on a calm movie, and lay down with her. If the environment is calm, she might calm down a little. I work in a preschool, and they can go a while without if they're sleep has gotten confused. I know alot of people are against it, but if she just won;t be still you can try and swaddle her. I do not do this in preschool, but i had a few parents i babysat for that did. If its still not going well, I know it's really hard, but just wait it out a little longer, if nothing by 48 hrs. Call the doctor.

  • If nothing is working I would call her Dr or take her in and get her checked out.
