My 2yo wakes up at 2am

JordynsMomma posted:
My 2 year old has been waking up at 2am for a while now and I cant get her to go back to sleep in her bed. She has been in a toddler bed for over a year since she started climbing out of her crib before her 1st birthday. Every night at 2 she wakes up and screams and cries for me (mommy) over and over. Ive tried to let her cry herself back to sleep (the tough love method) and that doesnt work (and makes me feel bad) the only solution that i have found that works is bringing her to my bed. is there a reason she would be doing this? she was never really a good sleeper in her crib. she goes to bed easy around 9pm after a bath but likes to be cuddled. anything will help!! please i need some suggestions!!

Can you just go in and rub her back for a few minutes to soothe her and then go back out? Does it seem like she's really awake or could they be night terrors?

Have you tried waiting it out to see how long she cries for? My DD used to cry when I'd leave the room but if I gave her a few minutes, she'd settle down and go back to sleep.
