My daughter is almost 20 months old and for the last 4 weeks has been waking up in the middle of the night at least twice. She doesn't wake up gradually either, it's more of a one minute I am fast asleep the next I am waking up to a screaming baby. I have checked for teeth (she does seem to have her last set of pre molars coming in), fever,tried giving her motrin incase it is one of those two. I have tried giving her an extra snack at night. The only thing that seems to calm her down is sleeping with her father and I, which leaves me with no sleep. I do not want to get into the habit of her sleeping with us, as I am newly pregnant with our second child. I am exhausted, any ideas? In desprite need of a full nights rest.
