Why is my toddler suddenly waking up at night?
Sometimes your little one suddenly starts waking up during the night – even after a period where she has been sleeping well overnight. Know that all people wake naturally during the night – it is a normal thing. Sometimes, though, these wakings can be spontaneous and startling. Try to stick with what you typically do and avoid things like letting her get into bed with you because that is a habit that can be quite hard to break. Try, also, to encourage her to go back to her own bed very neutrally and calmly. With some consistency over a few nights you will find that your child will settle back to sleep easily.About Dr. Michael Gradisar
