My 4yo DD has been waking around 6am for the past week crying and complaining of her "tummy hurting". She usually sleeps until 7:30 and always been a fantastic/deep deep sleeper. At first we just thought she was hungry (she is not a big dinner eater but is a very adventurous/healthy eater in general) and so we worked on encouraging her to eat protein/filling food for dinner at night. It dawned on me last night as DH and I were fighting AGAIN that she may have been picking up on my stress and it is manifesting itself as a physical pain for her. Of course we try to limit arguments to when the kids are in bed but who knows what she hears or just picks up by my general level of stress. We are committed to working things out but in the mean time I'm just so upset it's affecting her! Ideas?
