It is very important not to give your daughter any cold drink or anything that tastes good or sweet when she wakes up.Although I am usually against recommending sedatives, you may need to try using Melatonin for your daughter as waking 8 times a night is a real problem. Melatonin is a natural hormone and so is not a drug.It comes in tablet form and you need to give your daughter one 3mg tablet half an hour before her bedtime. You can crush the tablet and put it in a small amount of apple sauce.This often helps to break this cycle of sleeplessness at this age.
