My 18 month old daughter will not sleep at night because she is too busy crying and babbling about babies. Could this be because her daycare just moved her from the infant, or "baby" room to the official toddler room? I have given her all sorts of baby dolls and she acts really anxious about them like she MUST take care of them, she literally checks and changes their diapers, and stays up at night trying to feed them. What is going on with her?!?!?!? This is just crazy! I haven't slept in nights because of her staying up all night with her strange habits. My mom suggested taking her to a child psychologist, and I am strongly considering it. She is 18 months old!!!!! This seems so peculiar to me. I have seen this behavior in two year olds back when I worked in daycare, but they were just playing, they didn't let it affect their sleep habits and lives! Her daycare teachers even told me she holds bottles for other infants while they're drinking and tries to help the teachers. At first it was adorable, like she was a little helper... now it is just...well... frustrating! It has gotten to a point where other parents have asked me to make her stop.
