sleepless todd

hi there, i have two questions please.
my daughter will be 2 in august and she use to sleep like an angel, i never had any trouble with her, but the last few weeks she wakes up during the night screaming and then takes almost half hour to fall asleep again, this happens about 2-4 times per night, sometimes more. i followed someones advice and gave her some resque drops and that seemed to have worked but only for 3 nights , now we are back to the nightly screaming sessions. ive tried everything, even lettting her sleep in the bed with me,.

i am desperate....

and another question, ... can 2 positive rhesis blood type parents make a negative rhesis baby???

Your little girl is now going through a stage of having night terrors. This is very common at her age and is a passing phase. You need to go to her when she wakes and reassure her and then kiss her goodnight again and leave her room. using a nightlight in her room often helps.
It is possible for two Rhesus [Rh] positive parents to produce an Rh negative baby.Both parents carry both Rh positive and Rh negative genes and it is possible,although very rare that they both pass only the Rh negative genes on to their child.The baby will then be Rh negative despite having Rh positive parents.
