I hate days like these

Riley is in bed yelling away at the top of her lungs. She went to bed an hour and a half ago, was quiet for a while and now appears to be wide awake. Same thing happened last night at 12:30. Then during the day she is breathing super fast and "eee!"ed constantly. It makes me so IRRITABLE! I wish I knew what was going on and how to fix it. She was sleeping so well up until last night.

Ok crabby post over.

have you tried melatonin? That is what the suggested for cole before we decided to use meds for sleep. I crushed it up and put it into whatever he was drinking.

If it makes you feel any better, Cole has been getting up at 3 or 4 several times a week for months now!(well years actually!) He comes in and wakes me up every 30 mins until the alarm goes off! At least Riley is confined to her bed!

I was going to suggest melatonin too. In addition to the table, they make a liquid tincture that goes under the tongue. We tried it with Jackson a few times but it upset his stomach (which is a bummer, because it sent him right off to sleep before he woke up puking!).

Same here - melatonine. We use the liquid form 1.25 mls (so not very much) we use a dropper and she takes it great! We give it to her about 20/30 minutes prior to bedtime. I also know that Brooklyn's night time "wake up calls" had a little to do with her acid reflux (which was worse when she laid down at night.) The Prevacid seemed to help that. One final thing to try might be gas drops. Brooklyn was having gas pains when we started the miralax.
Sorry.....too many ideas???? more...we also play her a CD at night, a lullaby - might help relax her?
