Sleep Problems

bestgram posted:
My 2 yr old grandson has woken up twice in a week crying for me. I go to him, thinking he will go right back to sleep. Then he gets up and we are up for a while. I don't mind being up for a bit as this is what I do, care for him. I am just concerned why he is waking up. Think I'll call the Dr. tomorrow. Any others dealing with this?

Yes oh my gosh yes. I keep my granddaughter 2-4 nights during the week so her exhausted parents can get some sleep. I don't work during the day, they do. I don't know how they function. Sometimes she just wakes for a diaper change, sometimes for a drink, and others she is awake for hours. I don't understand. I had four children and none of them had sleep issues like this. I have no idea what to do to help her except wait this out. She is teething and her mom says that can cause her to not sleep well. However, this is an on going problem. It has been for over a year maybe longer.
