You gave me some input previously - I am happy to say there is hope for a good night's rest! In my house, it is the gluten-free diet. After 3 days, my dd was waking only once a night and falling back to sleep easier. Then she slept through the night 3 nights straight - I don't think she had ever done that in her life (she is 3 next week). Her digestive problems started about a year ago and prior to that she was only off the breast for 6 months.
She had the same scared wake-ups you describe, crying out for me and ocassionally taking an hour or more to fall back to sleep. She would lay down but could not fall asleep it seemed. Other times, she would wake and come get me quietly. She is still doing that some but not as much the past week as in a night previously. She falls back to sleep easily.
Good luck and good rest.

I was just diagnosed with celiac with my 2yr old son. my 5 yr old son has gluten sensitivity. my side of the family are big dreamers. but i had noticed last yr my 5yr old started having night terrors and then they stopped. well since we have gone gluten-free in home, i dont know if its the change or what but they have started back up again. i read a little on night terrors when he first started and it said that if your child falls asleep pretty fast on their own then they are more likely to have night terrors, so they said to disturb the child after about 20 minutes of sleep. like make them role over, just make them move some how and that should stop them. so maybe give that a try and see if it helps out a little. its something about the first 30 min after they go to sleep that could possibly cause that. but who knows what all happens with celiac. there are just so many things that are affected by it. goodluck
