The last two nights my little one (10 months) has been waking around 2-3 am and wanting to stay awake to play. We don't co-sleep per se but sort of. She has a twin mattress in her room and I am with her part of the time. Anyways the last two nights when she has done this I lay there ignoring her, pretending to be asleep but she just crawls all over, babbling away. At one point I tried to make her lay down but that didn't end well. She doesn't want to nurse she just wants to play. I have two other kids and I have to be up during the day so what am I supposed to do? I can't handle being awake for hours in the middle of the night. Last night she woke at 3:30 am and was awake until 6:30 am when I woke my DH and made him take her upstairs. She ended up staying awake from 3:30 am until 9:15 am! DH brought her to me then and I put her down for a nap and she is still sleeping (about an hour and a quarter later) but this is ridiculous! How can she be awake that much? Help!
