very restless 14 month old

My 14 month old daughter is a very restless when she sleeps. She will moan and move from one side of the cot to the other. She even just gets up and sit and then back again on the pillow. She still sleeps in her cot. this happens every night and needless to say we dont have enough sleep. She has a nice bath and massage before she goes to bed. Can you recommend anything that could assist? please advise?Thanx

You have given a very clear description of your little daughter's symptoms. She could well have a problem with acid reflux which is causing her discomfort when she lies down. the fact that she sits up seems to be a particular sign suggesting that she may have acid reflux. Please ask your paediatrician to see her and mention the possibility of her having reflux when you take her to be seen.
