Hey Mommies,

I'm desperate! DD (22 months) was a champion sleeper, until a nasty bout of hand, foot, and mouth. (I'm still majorly ticked with the friend who exposed her...).

Since then (about 3 weeks), she's been waking up multiple times each night, terrified about being alone. One night, in a fit of toddler rage, she even climbed out of her crib, so we had to transition her to a toddler bed.

When she wakes up, it's as if she's afraid to fall asleep. She keeps calling our names, to reassure herself that we're still in the room. We're seeing improvement -- she's just calling for us, rather than screaming her head off -- but we're exhausted after being up with her for 1-2 hrs every night. (And she's perpetually exhausted, as she's waking up for the day at her usual time.)

We've never needed to let her "cry it out," but I think we may be at that point...

Has anyone else gone through this? Any tips for how to resolve it?

If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.
