Questions for Dr. Kifle

Dr. Kifle is my sleep guru. Seriously, if this guy doesn't make my life a whole lot better I don't know what I'll do. Poor guy, he has no idea that he is going to meet me tomorrow and that I am going to expect miracles.

Questions:
  • Why does she wake up at almost exactly the same times every night?
  • Is it habit? If so, how do I break it?
  • Is Melatonin right for her and for me? (as I have now become so anxious that she will wake up I have a terrible time getting to sleep too)
  • Is she ready to sleep in a twin bed?
  • Could her rousing in the middle of the night be what is occasionally waking Max up too?
  • Do night terrors start this young? Is it possible?
  • What do I do?
  • What should I expect for an average two year old?
  • How many hours of sleep do kids' need at this age?
  • What about naps? How long? Is there a 'perfect schedule'?
  • Could food/juice affect night waking or difficulty falling asleep? (besides caffeine)
  • What do I do?
