Just after some advice. Our little lady (will soon be 18 months) has been a good sleeper until recently. She hasn't been well for about 8 weeks now but has recently started to improve. The last 4 nights she has been waking up and not being able to get herself back to sleep. This has resulted in the other morning waking up at 2.30am and not going back off until 6.30 where she slept until 9am. (she generally goes down about 8pm and she used to have 12 hours continuous sleep) This morning she woke up at 5.30. I stayed with her until 7am and tried rocking, singing and rubbing her back. Non of this worked and she ended up screaming until 8am where she finally got herself back to sleep.
Not sure if this is a development thing, the time of year thing or habit as she has been unwell for so long. We have tried giving her calpol incase it is her teeth but nothing seems to be helping.
I would love some advice or would like to know if it is a phase!
