    Hi @Benheidichloe3 - & welcome to the community. It sounds like this is distressing for both of you. May I ask how old is your daughter, & have you discussed this with her GP?
    Scope has some family services you may find helpful. Please see: https://www.scope.org.uk/family-services/

    Welcome to the community @Benheidichloe3 :) It's great to have you with us.

    Thanks for sharing with us the problem your daughter is having with her sleep. I can imagine this could cause you some worry.

    As the others have said, it would be worth chatting to your GP or another health professional about this. Do you mind me asking whether your daughter has any kind of diagnosis at the moment? 

    You may also be interested in a podcast series our Sleep Right team created, which covers plenty of helpful tips and tricks. 

    I've moved your post into our parents, children, and families category so that it'll hopefully be easier for you to connect with other parents in a similar position.
