    How old is your LO, and has the doctor actually examined her for an ear infection or any other kind of illness or medical problem like reflux? If there isn't any obvious medical cause for the bad sleep, my first guess would be teething. I know my DS will sometimes wake up screaming multiple times a night when he is cutting a tooth. He is also just a wild and crazy sleeper in general, so he constantly tosses and turns in his sleep at night.
