PS- my Mom says I used to be "inconsolable" when I awoke in the night- there are studies I've read about highly sensitive people starting out in early life that way.

Mine wakes up periodically no matter what! Most babies will wake up and some (my little sister, now 27 did not sleep all night until she was 4!) just need to know you are there. My 2 year old responds well to reassurances from me or Daddy and drifts back to slumber with love.

My son did the same thing when I had him in the crib, and his toddler bed. I have since moved him to a twin size bed. He will sleep in the bed now without tossing and turning all night long. I worried at first, because a 1 and a half year old in that big bed, but it was the best investment I made. When he does toss and turn he has room to do it on the bed and doesnt even wake up from it anymore. I also give him a sippy cup filled with water for him to drink at night if he is thirsty. I have noticed with my son that most of his issues are that when he wakes and I am not there with him. He loves to cuddle, so I have his favorite stuffed animal in his bed with him that he cuddles up to, its not me, but a great sub since I dont want to have to sleep in his bed everynight with him.

You could try giving her a warm bath with lavender. (IDK if you give milk @ nite) But if you do, heat it up. Hope this helps.
