She was sleeping through the night. Then for several nights in a row waking through the night. And now it's like every other or every few nights she's doing it. Is it just part of the toddler years?
What helped your little one? Thank you.

Yes I did. My 2 year old went on what I call the sleeping strike. My husband moved her from the crib one morning. He just got up and converted the crib. So my poor daughter slept one night in a crib then the next in a double bed. So here is where the sleeping issues begin. It took a year of me getting woken up to sleep with her. I think I am just a working mom who does not do tough love at 2 am. So you reap what you sow, I guess. i made this mess and lived with it too long. Buy over 3 when she had a new infant sister I laid down the rules. I was up with an infant so I made her go back to sleep, or wake her father which my kids seem to not want to do, go figure!!
My daycare provider claimed it was night terrors but I am unsure.
Not sure i answered you question!!
