    Default Erratic day sleeps

    hi,

    my DD is 18 months old and for the last month her day sleep has been all over the place. Once she transitioned to one sleep around 16 months she slept an hour and 20 minutes and still had a 7pm bed time and slept through.

    now she will either not sleep, sleep for 20 minutes and wake up crying and inconsolable, 40 minutes and wake up happy or again crying and inconsolable, an hour and crying and inconsolable, an hour and crying but back to sleep for another hour, an hour 20 minutes and wake up happy or 2 hours and wake up happy.

    she self settles and has done for 9-10 months.

    im not so concerned its different lengths of time as she's still sleeping through, but I'm concerned at why she's waking up and crying inconsolably and needs to be cuddled for 5-15 minutes before calming down.

    There's a thermometer as part of her monitor and I know the temperature is ok. She eats lunch at 11:30 then down at 12, so she's not hungry or thirsty, she always has a clean nappy.

    Is there such a thing as day terrors?

    Has anyone been through this and can offer any advice at what might be wrong?

    TIA!!!!

    It sounds like perhaps she's waking mid sleep cycle, which could be causing the inconsolible crying. She might be feeling a bit disorrientated. DS1 went through a stage of waking from every day sleep in absolute hysterics (can't remember exactly how old he was, but would have been around 2 or a bit younger). It could take a good 1/2 hour to calm him down, sometimes longer. It eventually stopped, so I'm not sure exactly what it was, but night (or day) terrors could have been the cause. Sorry, not a lot of help, but hopefully it is just a phase.

    Thanks decemberbubba, it is a help knowing it could just be a phase. She has so many food allergies and intolerance that I'm never sure if its linked to that, another physical issue or just another passing phase.
