Every night it's something. We hear her crying in her room, one of us will go to her (we trade nights), we'll ask what is wrong and she'll say something hurt. IE: "My tummy feels weird it hurts." Or, "I have a headache". Sometimes she just cries and we can't get her to talk to us at all. Whichever the case, she doesn't really seem awake, she just cries for a little while and slowly goes back to sleep. Her cries are almost never hysterical. When they are I wake her as gently as possible and ask her about her dream, reassure her and tuck her in and love on her.Sometimes she will wake up and come into our room, tell her dad that she had a bad dream and he'll walk to back to her room hug and kiss her and put her back to bed after telling her its ok. With that problem solved. With the crying I don't know what to do. Any advice at all would be wonderful. Sorry for the small book, I'm new to the circle of moms and wanted to give as much background as possible in hopes of getting wonderful advice. Thanks again,

Thank you both for the information. I didn't think about acid reflux. As for the diet, I have been messing around with it a little bit trying to figure out what time she shouldn't eat after as well as trying to figure out if its worse when she eats certain things or not. I really appreciate the tips and sharing how you both have gotten through it. Thank you again,

I used to be afraid of the dark and I would get stomach gas as a child and my mom just sent me to bed with helping. Some a kid could be allergic to sweets and milk which causes bad dreams and stomach aches. So watch the diet.. blessings
