My preemie (3 months early) girl is almost 2yrs old now. She's tiny compared to her older sister who was 3 months past due, but completely healthy.
My little one has started to cry-then-whine about 2-3 times per night (last around 5 mins), and then be completely awake at 5:30am. She goes to bed at around 6:30-7pm every night. Has a solid 1-2hr nap at daycare (completely uninterrupted).
During the nightly whining, she does not wake up at all. She tosses and turns, falls out of the bed and sleeps on the floor, sideways in bed, I mean if she could she would sleep on the ceiling. She is in her teething stage right now and just started to walk a bit more than a month ago (she's almost running now). She also does a lot of baby talk (seems like she's thinking about what to say, but can't just yet). Her psychological functions are there: recognizes actions and objects, cleans after herself - sees her older sister do it, and repeats it, runs for hugs, etc.
I just don't know what to do to have her sleep normally. This started around the same time as teething, 2-3 months ago (mind you, she's getting a lot of teeth much sooner than her older sister did).
