  • I wish I could help you. My daughter has been sleeping in my bed with me since she was born. She has only recently started sleeping in the bassinett and sometimes she will even sleep in her crib for a few hours. I have read a lot of people say that at 6 months, they still swaddle their babies, maybe you could try swaddling, so it feels like she's wrapped tightly in mommy's arms. Good Luck!

  • She's probably teething and looking for comfort...it'll pass.

  • She is probably teething, even if you are giving her something for it she may need something else. Some teeth give them more problems than others. And the same think does not always work. I have been having to alternate teething tablets and Tylenol for my little one and she has 7 teeth.
