Almost 7 month old crying non stop

My baby girl is going to be 7 months on the 18th, I'm a first time mom.. Normally she's a happy baby rarely crys and always sleeps through the night.. The past 2 nights (and days) she's been screaming / crying almost non stop and refusing to sleep let alone in her own room... I guess what I'm asking is if this is normal? I thought she might be teething or a growth spurt but starting to second guess myself.... Help?!

  • I'm going with teething, myself. It's only been a couple of nights so give it a little time and see how she continues. Is she eating well?

    Ask your pediatrician if you can give her a bit of Tylenol before bed and see if that helps

  • Teething! Mine just went through the same thing at 6 months, and two teeth came through. Now she is 9 months and it's starting again. As long as she doesn't have a fever about 103, she should be okay.
    It could be a growth spurt too!
