My 2 year old has been waking up screaming and crying every night at least once between 10 & midnight. Tonight we're up to 2 and it's not even 11 yet. Sometimes she seems definately awake, other times she's hysterical, but incoherent. The only thing that seems to sooth her is nursing, but nursing her is totally reversing the progress towards night weaning we were making. She wants to nurse every couple of hours at night again, which I could handle if I weren't nursing a 9 month old through the night too. Sometimes I can get her to go back to sleep just snuggling in, but other times she screams and wakes the baby and I end up with both of them screaming to nurse at the same time. I haven't gotten more than an hour or 2 of solid sleep in over 3 weeks which is starting to wear on me. I know that she is adjusting to a lot right now-- we recently moved, she and thebaby both have colds, I'm sure she's picking up the sress fom dh & I about jobs/ finances. I hate to hear her crying and screaming, but I don't know what to do. We all share a king sized bed. Echo (2 year old) had started asking to go to bed in her own bed, next to ours about a month go, but usually ended up in bed with us at some point during the night. Th last week or so she wants to go to sleep in our bed again. It's no problem, just more info. She's also potty learning right now--mostly her initiative, and pooped on the potty all by herself for the first time yesterday. Is it just because there's so much going on--developmentally and environmentally. Is there anything I can do to help her. Is there anything I can do to stop her from crying and screaming so hard at night? It breaks my heart<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> Sorry this is so long. I hope some of you mamascan help me.
