Re: Waking up at 2 am most nights

Hi...oh, no wonder whe's awake at that hour for a while...she has a purpose. It's good she goes back to bed when you take her there. I realise the rocking is a soother for her.

Would she possibly stay in bed if you promise her that she can watch the video in the morning for a half hour or something like that rather than in the middle of the night? Maybe she won't be as grouchy?

I guess trying different things is the only way, but if she does have asthma...it's possible that the inhaler would have something to do with her middle of the night awakenings.
What inhaler is she on? a long lasting or a preventer med?

There are some meds such as singulair that might help if she has allergies, etc. I found it to be a bit tiring, maybe used at night would help her sleep/relax?

I hope you get the appointment soon and that more insight into what's going on will help with her schedule.
