My daughter is 4 and cries at night, last night was the worst in ages. She cried nearly all night long in the end I let her get in my bed just so I could get some sleep.

She usually vries maybe once a week, I usually go in to her but she pushes me away/doesn't answer whats the matter/or just wants a cuddle. I also try to speak to her in the morning about it but she doesn't remember it happening.

Any help/advice

Thanks
Allison:confused:

Difficult situation for her and you. Sending her Love and Light. Hoping someone has some suitable suggestions. How about hypnotherapy/EFT to help her?

Have there been any stressful or difficult events in the family? Children sometimes don't show an obvious reaction to upsetting incidents straight away, but sleep disturbance is one of the common signs. Does your daughter look scared when she wakes up or just upset? (Have a look at the description of [url] night terrors[/url] to see if it fits). How long has this been going on? Do you notice any other signs of distress or changes in her behaviour?

If you want to get professional help I would suggest EFT (with a qualified practitioner experienced in treating children)

Hi
Thanks for your replies.
This has been happening for the last year or so.
The only changes have been moving house (over 2 years ago) and having a new baby (15 months). I know these can be hugh events but she didn't seem fazed.
She is such a happy playful little girl, loves the new house and garden, always in the garden playing with her younger brother.
Last night no problems, she slept well.
Will look into EFT, thought she might be a bit younger.
Thanks again
Allison:D

Hi Allie, I notice from your website that you practice EFT yourself - if you don't have a tapping bear or another tapping toy (such as the ones made by Linda Wood ) I would very much recommend to get one of those. Whilst your daughter is quite young and the standard EFT procedure may not suit her at this point, bear tapping should be great. If you want to adapt a shop-bought bear, it is best for it to be quite firm and not squishy.

Never leave a child in a state of crying

I think you have to meet all of their needs during the night, When hungry immediately give milk or wet diapers immediately change. Never leave a child in a state of crying. Because it would adversely affect psychological

Actually, Your baby is fully dependent on you. You provide her with the food, warmth and comfort that she needs. When she cries, it's her way of communicating any or all of those needs and of ensuring a response from you. It's sometimes hard to work out which need your baby wants you to take care of. But as your baby grows she'll learn other ways of communicating with you. For example, she'll get better at eye contact, making noises and smiling.
