why is she waking up? **edited to add a question**
she's been waking up around 3 am for a couple weeks now. we always put her back to bed but it takes a half hour for her to fall back to sleep.
she's always been a great sleeper. but lately....i dont know =/
she's 20 months. she has been in a day bed since she was 14 months (although...we decided to turn it back into a crib because she's not sleeping in her bed...she sleeps by the door.) that was just last night...
i just want her to sleep through the night again. its killing my sleep to be having to go and get her back to sleep and i KNOW she's not sleeping well because of this.
she doesnt want to go to sleep anymore. she hates naptime (we've nixed that until we can figure out the sleeping thing. half the time she doesnt nap until 4 or 5 pm anyways)
i DONT like her crying to sleep =/ makes me feel bad. but if i try and rock her to sleep...doesnt work. (sleep training kind of nixed that over a year ago... -.- unintended side effect) if i bring her into bed with me...she just fusses and kicks me and stays awake anyways. if i stay in the room with her i have to stay there for so long because she fights to stay awake because i'm there.
What if its night terrors? her grandmother brought it up today. how do i know if its night terrors? if it is night terrors how do i help them go away or help her get past them? we normally have a fan going in her room...especially lately for both how warm it is and white noise. we have a night light in her room as well.
