My daughter went through a spell where she just refused to sleep at all. She would force herself to stay awake all day and would still be awake when I was ready to go to bed at night. I tried everything to get her to sleep. Finally after a few days of this I started bringing her to bed with me at night and she would fall right asleep and sleep at least 10 hours straight. We did this for about a week and now I can't seem to get her to sleep in her room again. If I put her to bed in her room she will scream and will not settle down no matter what I try, even if I snuggle with her. She will scream for an hour straight before I give in. As soon as I take her out of her room she calms right down and will fall asleep within 10 minutes of being out of her room. She can even be fast asleep and if I put her in her room she will be awake and screaming within 15 minutes. It's almost as if she is scared of her room all of a sudden since she used to sleep in there with no problems. I have even tried letting her sleep with a hot water bottle and one of my t-shirts, nothing seems to work. Any one else have a similar issue with their little one? Any one have any suggestions?
