My two year old is waking up every 1/2 hour at night. What do I do?

She wakes up all the time screaming and nothing is helping her. We are so tired and we don't know what to do. We have looked into night terrors but everthing says that will just pass but they don't seem to. Does it take months for night terrors to go away? Or is there something else we can try?

Talk to your doctor tell more than just a phase insist on a sleep study it will help

Typically with night terrors they wake up within a few hours after they go to sleep, and they are unconsolable. It's horrifying and there is nothing you can do but hold your child and let it pass. But since your child is waking up every 1/2 hour that does not sound like night terrors to me. Can you talk to her when she is crying and wil she respond? My 2 year old goes through phases of sleeping great all night to waking up several times in the night crying for no reason. I would give it a few days and if it doesn't improve call you dr to make sure nothing else is going on.

I wish you the best of luck.
