Not sure if she is sleeping in with you but if not, if you have a spare single or double bed then put it in her bedroom and fed her lying down (if breastfeeding). Otherwise just lay in the bed with her (if you are fine with co-sleeping) or on your own and sleep there for the rest of the night. It could be the walk back to your room that rouses you awake.

i'm starting to have the same problem i just cant switch my brain off after its so annoying! I thought about the milk thing but i always thought that warm milk was a bit of a myth but i will defiantly try it!! My mum would always say to me to put a few drops of lavender oil on my pillow and rub into my temples when i cant sleep i should really try that too, lol they say mums know best!
