Use your own judgement. If you are comfortable letting her cry, try it. I (personally) would not leave her cry for more than 15 minutes. Babies go through so many phases that it's hard to say what's bothering her. I assume you've tried dressing her more warmly. Maybe she needs a night light or some soothing music? It could be a growth spurt or teething (molars). My daughter has a few books in bed. If she doesn't want to lay back down, I tell her to look at a story and then go to sleep. Lately, this is what works. At this point, it's really a guessing game. Soon she'll be old enough to tell you what the problem is.

My daughter is 2 1/2 and we are going through the dream/night terror stage. She will be in there yelling things or kicking her legs and screaming. I've finally figured out that she's really not awake and the more I try to help her, the worse I make it. The last week or so, I haven't gone in her room (unless she's yelling for me) and within about 5 minutes she's quiet again.

My daughter did that too at 15 months. I was pissed! lol. She had ALWAYS been a great sleeper. She would wake at 2 am and not want to go back to sleep. She would play...She just stopped all of a sudden. We all sleep in the same room at the moment and she was sleeping in her own room until 13 months when we moved to a different house. I couldnt just let her do whatever since she ould come to me and poke at my eyes and pull my hair, go to her toys, etc. It was irritating. lol. I think the waking up lasted like 2 weeks, for no reason that i can think of.

At this age, all you can do is leave her to it, make sure she in bed. But you cant constently be with her. you got to let her know that it is bed time and leave her by herself. If your constently with her she is not gonna wanna go back to sleep. She gonna want to stay up. Once that she see that you are serious then she will got back to bed without a problem. its gonna be a process She will cry a lot probley in the begaining. but this really is the only way. Just make sure that she is changed and fed and there is nothing eles the matter.

My daughter was doing this to ans still does everyonce in awhile, do you have a nightlight in her room, we had one in our daughters room and soon as the light bulb died and we took it out if she woke up she fell right back to sleep without me even going in her room. I thought it was strange but its worth a try
