I am the mom of a beautiful almost 2 year old. She is usually a great sleeper but this last week she has been waking up in the middle of the night and crying for us. If we go get her she is happy and just wants to play. I just don't know what do do. I'm sure it's the 2yr old sleep regression but I don't want to start bad habits. The last few nights the only way we got her to sleep was by bottle, car ride or me laying down with her. She used to be able to self soothe but seems unable now. We let her cry for and hour and a half last night before we gave up...I guess that's the problem that we give up. If we go in to reassure her and walk out that seems to just make her madder. I am at a total lost and I don't know what to do.

Thanks she had a couple of good night but hopefully it's not a trick and we are on the right path!

I had this happen around that age. at the time, we were both working, dad was up at 4 am and out by 5 to work, and I had to be in by 7:30. My son would wake up around 2 am and want to be up. I would usually pop in his favorite video, and doze with him on the futon. That went on for about 2 weeks until one night hubby woke up and found us. He told our son that it wasn't proper to be awake at that time, that mom and dad needed to sleep. He put the boy back to bed, and we never had that happen again.

This will pass, I promise
