ok, so baby has been sleeping through since she was 6 months old, now she's 14 months and keeps waking up at night sometimes whining, crying or screaming, she use to settle herself when she woke up but now you can forget it, she cries until I fetch her out the cot and put her in our bed. She doesn't want tea or milk, and when she's in our bed it takes her about an hour to calm down.
She hasn't been eating and drinking too well but it's expected from a toddler, but now she has become constipated which isn't helping the situation much.
I'm starting to go insane with the lack of sleep, and it's not fun!!
some people say it's a growth spurt and others say it's nightmares, but she shows no signs of having bad dreams such as pointing at shadows in the room etc.
Does anyone know what's going on?? I've started thinking about crying her out, but I can't do it unless I've figured out what the problem is and excluded any medical or mental problems, I don't want to cause more harm if you know what I mean.
