Somebody help me

I don't know what to do. It's almost 4am and my 6mo daughter is being crazy! She slept from 7-11 but since then has been up every half hour crying. She usually wakes up 1-3 times throughout the night then goes back to sleep fine.
I'm going to lose my mind.
My boyfriend is working midnights so he won't be home untill 6 then he's going to goto bed.

  • Go in the bathroom, turn the lights out, turn on the fan or run some water and bounce her. That always worked for my LO. It was a great workout for my legs too!

  • Its probably growing pains. Give her a nice massage with some slightly warmed baby oil. Especially her legs. That or teething.

  • Hang in there momma she might be teething and in discomfort, have you checked for new teeth? If it's not teeth there could be other things going on with her like gas etc or it could be just a phase. Try to keep the lights dimmed and maybe play soft music and rock her, that always worked for my dd.
