  • Yep also about this time, they go thru a spurt and the behaviour changes too. It will only last a couple weeks and then she will start sleeping thru the night again.

  • It's normal for babies to breastfeed and wake in the night until they are 3. Waking 4-5 times is normal. Sleeping through the night isn't. It could have nothing to do with teeth and go on for months. My 18 mo grandson wakes up many times at night to nurse, his mother works and he makes up for lost time.

  • Yep, happened when my daughter was teething, I would do orajel and a little tylenol before putting her down and it seemed to help A LOT!! Are her gums inflamed or look bubbly......try this, if she is soothed when you put a little orajel on then that is probably the problem......

  • Teething, Also a MAJOR growth spurt requiring more milk. AND and age for learning major new milestones. It is possibly all three. Sleep patterns change a lot in the first year and doesn't really settle until age 3 or 4

  • i wouldnt recommend tylenol to help a baby sleep.

    this will pass, could be teething but will you ever really know?
