Night Waking 7 Year Old

Linda - posted on 01/11/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 7 year old daughter wakes at 1:30 am and stays up until 4 or 5! She does this if I put her to bed early or keep her up until 8:30 or 9. Help? Ideas Suggestions? Help!

What is she doing during those hours? Is she reading, playing, or just lying in bed? I would tell her to lie in bed with her eyes closed until she goes back to sleep. Is she consuming anything with caffeine in it? Is she taking any medicines that could be causing this? This is NOT the norm--so if there's no medicine involved (even over the counter stuff) then you just need to recondition her body to sleep at the appropriate time. If she wakes up, it needs to be really boring until she goes back to sleep. How can she function at school with so little sleep?
