2 yr old screams during the night



My just-turned-two year old daughter sleeps through the night and has done so since she was at least six months. That being said, every so often, she wakes in the night and just screams or cries for us. I know it's just a habit because it's usually right around the same time for however many days she does it. IF we choose to go to her, we tell her to lie down and go to sleep - there's no codling. She always stops crying after a few minutes when she realizes that we aren't going to get her out of her crib. Do you have any insight on why she has these odd episodes where she wakes up and do you have any other tips on how to handle it? We would LOVE to eliminate this behavior!
