Hey Ladies, I have a 20 month old and a 4 year old (both girls)...the 20 month old suffered from severe reflux and possible dairy intolerence (maybe still does?). She has never slept through the night, but for the last couple of months her sleeping (or lack of it), has got even worse! She usually goes off to sleep at about 8pm and then wakes at 10pm, midnight, 2am...and stays awake screaming for me, screaming for milk....until about 4am!!! The other morning she did all this and then woke at 5am wanting up!! She is asking for milk constantly!!! And if she doesnt get it she gets herself very distressed to the point she starts choking. She settles sometimes if I stay in the room with her, give her hugs etc...but I am the only one she will settle for. My 4 year old is exhausted in the mornings going to nursery school. Our bedrooms are all close together so when my 20 month screams she keeps everyone awake. My husband is of the opinion I am 'pandering' to her too much (he told me this at 3am last night whilst I was desparately trying to settle her!!!), and he thinks we should close her door and leave her to scream herself to sleep. She is scared of the dark, and if left to scream she gets more and more distressed. He thinks that me going in to comfort her is 'giving in', and that now she expects it. I feel like I am being blamed for it all (he says this isnt the case yet then tells me what I am doing wrong at 4am). Do you think this could be reflux, or just a phase (that seems to be unrelenting)....or something else? I am at a loss now as to what to do, we seem to be going back to the first few months when all she did was scream 24/7. My husband has suggested taking her to the doctor, but I havent got round to making an appointment (which again is all my fault, husband seems to think this is all my responsibility too!). Has any one any ideas on what could be going on here?
