    Default Please help toddler screaming at bed time and vomiting

    Up until this past week my 22month old was an angel at bed time 7:30 every night she would grab her Teddy of choice ask for a bottle and walk in her room for me to put her I to bed.

    This past week she has been screaming every time we try to put her to sleep and we can't even let her cry it out as she vomits everytime she gets upset about going to bed. She is also doing this at her daycare they have even gotten me to pick her up thinking she was sick and they have told me when they do get her to sleep she wakes up screaming.

    I don't know what to do it has been like an overnight change and is very heartbreaking I have tried to make bed time fun or even a game and that still fails I have let her wear herself out that much she crashes and even then she will wake up through the night screaming and one of us will have to stay up until she falls asleep on the lounge which is where we end up staying

    Does anyone have a solution??!

    I'd have her ears checked, I've heard of children doing this at bedtime and it ends up being an ear infection of some sort.

    Consider a paediatric chiropractor, they'll help with many things including ear problems if it happens to be that. Could also be nightmares maybe?

    It's odd that you say that she has had 10 ear infections this year so far and has even been to a ENT but they won't do anything as she is too young and they told me to wait and see if she grows out of these ear infections however ear infections in the past have never affected her sleeping patterns

    My nephew was like that and it worked out his grandma had read from a goosebumps book to him a couple of bedtimes when he was staying there. Sounds like she has night terrors. Have you tried patting or tickling her back until she falls asleep? Or by playing some soft music while she sleeps? U really need her to settle in her room though because it will become a habit that will be very hard to break.

    My nephew had a rough patch for a long time, he went to a doctor and was referred to other specialists. Eventually one did some massage that mimicked a natural birth and he was a whole new baby. Might be worth checking out.
