My 2 1/2 year old grand-daughter wakes up several times a night usually starting at 3am, we have also noticed unusual behavior. Any advice or ideas would be appreciated.

Our grand-daughter wakes up several times a night, not for a drink or food, see tries to play in our bed. The waking up always starts around the same time each night 3am. Any ideas what could be causing this?

What time is she going to bed? What do you do when she gets up? Do you bring her straight back to bed?

My advice would be to not talk to her when she gets up that early and put her back in her bed. She's old enough that you can try to explain to her that when it's bedtime we stay in our room. You could leave a nightlight on or give her a book to read and tell her she can get up but she needs to stay in her room and not disturb others. If she gets up go put her back in bed and don't say anything.

Does she live with you or is this during visits? What other unusual behaviors are you noticing?
