    Default 22 month old crying out most of the night

    Hi all just wondered if anyone had any ideas, DD is 22 months and is generally a good overnight sleeper, waking once at about 5am for a bottle.

    The last few nights though she's been really unsettled waking or crying out almost every hour during the night.
    - she doesn't appear hot or cold as room temp is the same every night
    - I've tried pandadol and nurofen
    - I've given her extra milk so i know she's not hungry
    - no temperature so I don't think she's sick, no other symptoms
    - has been prone to UTI's but tested her urine and it's fine.

    Only other her thing I can think of is teeth but I thought pandadol or nurofen would have helped?

    Any other ideas please?

    My 20 month old has started this too, seemingly for no reason. I wondered night terrors?

    My 19 month goes through phases of doing this. I think it's dreams and nightmares. Pretty normal. I just leave him and he settles himself after about 10 minutes. If you keep going in to comfort her every time she calls out then she will do it all the time for attention. I'd only go in if she becomes hysterical or is sick.

    Thanks ladies, I wondered if it might be nightmares. But all night? For nights in a row?

    My 23 month old had his first night terror the other day. He never wakes fully at night, might hear him make a small noise but this was different. He was inconsolable and in a zombie like state. It was very weird.

    I wonder if it's a developmental change they're going through around 2?
