  • have you tried feeding her in the night while she's awake and craying? maybe she's hungry then too.

  • Are you feeding her solids? If she is still on mainly formula, then I would try more solid meals, they will help keep her fuller longer and sleep through the night (if hunger is the issue)

  • If it's teething try Hyland's Teething Tablets. They dissolve instantly and help her calm down to help her sleep. You can give her 2-3 every 4 hours and they aren't medicated so no worries of an OD

  • If it's her teeth I can see why she's crying all night, babies teeth cutting in is 10 times worse than an adult tooth ache. Try the teething tablets, they work wonders! I used them for my girls. Also keep up with the Motrin, and I'd do Tylenol as well. like every other dose, not at the same time of course. You can find teething tablets at walmart for sure, maybe walgreens too not sure. The tablets dissolve in their mouth and it's all natural and safe.

  • Have her ears been checked? When my daughter cries like that at night, it is because she has an ear infection. Do try the Hyland's teething tablets as well.
