2yr old waking up crying at night
Our 2 year old daughter wakes up in the middle of the night whimpering and crying asking for mom and dad. I believe she is still asleep because when we quietly assure her that we are here with her, she quickly calms down and goes back to sleep. We tried thinking about what could be the "trigger" and the only thing that was "new/change" was our newborn baby. Our 2 year old has been doing this for about a month before the baby was born. Almost seems like she is anxious/nervous about something. Is this a phase that will eventually pass? It's already bad enough waking up every 2 hours for the newborn but adding the crying from the 2 yr old certainly doesn't help.
