I'm new to this so I don't know if i'm doing this right. My daughter is 19 months old, she goes to bed every night no problems at all, but around 2:30 and 3:30 every morning she wakes up crying and starts screaming more and more, i'll go over and comfort her and she's fine until I walk away, then she gets more hysterical and nothing I do will make her stop crying. I let her get a drink when she wakes up so I know she's not thirsty, she's not teething, she's got a full tummy for bed, so I don't know what it can be, she doesn't act scared like it's nightmares, she just acts like she wants to be up, and fights me even if I let her lay in bed with me and screams in my face. The doctor says she's just being spoiled but I don't know if that's true or what else it could be and due to living situations atm we share a room so it's not like I can just let her cry it out. This is starting to really wear me and her daddy down, I don't know what we can do, I need some help if anyone has some to offer.
