My daughter is 3 and a half and just about every night she wakes up crying. This has been going on for just about 2 years. Sometimes it is night terrors but those seemed to have stopped and she just cries and screams but seems to be awake. It takes from 5 minutes to 20 minutes to calm her down and get her back to sleep. I am at my wits end. She is happy and playfull during the day but doesn't take a nap. She has a regular sleep schedule. I talked to her doctor and she gave her melatonin but that didn't help. I don't like to see her like this and I end up staying up till 3am waiting for her nightly crying.
