My two-year old has just started this over the past few nights. She wakes up sreaming. Then when we go in to check on her she doesn't want to be held or anything. All we can do is pat her back and tell her she has to go night night. I have started giving her a glow worm she finds it calming and giggles when it plays. She will hit it two or three times and she is back to sleep. We have it in her crib all the time, but she doesn't seem to find it till one of us goes in and pushes it for her and puts it next to her face. Then she is happy and sleeps the rest of the night.
