  • I would take her to the Dr to get her throat checked out in case that is the problem.  I had terrible tonsilitis as a toddler which only improved when they were eventually taken out!  Do you give her Calpo or equivalent when she says it hurts?

    Keep up with the bedroom routine too, I think you need to be consistent.  If she comes out of her room for no good reason  just take her back calmly and put her back into bed, don't start a debate with her about it.  My son occasionally wakes at night, and I just show him that it's dark outside to reinforce that it's sleep time, that seems to work with him!
