  • Maybe she is getting hungry so might try her on baby cereal and that might help her not be so hungry. Just try to make her comfortable when bed time. I leave a night light on and my girls are 9,7, and 5. They will grow out of it and just a stage. Just hang in there. Plus let her know you are there for her which helps.

  • It could be a growth spurt or even night terrors.

  • I can't say that I have experienced that, and I have 9 children. But what I can tell you is that every baby is different, and they go through changes in their little bodies just like we sometimes do. Hang there lil' Momma, she'll get back in tune with the schedule. Meanwhile, maybe you can try keeping her a lot busier in the day and towards the evening (if you are not already doing this). Maybe put her down a lot later if she's keeping you a little sleep deprived (it's very important you get YOUR sleep). This suggestion may be a little harder to do, but see if it works. Let her cry a little longer each day that she wakes up early, eventually she will begin to see that you will not come to her immediately because she is crying, it may just wear her out, and perhaps she'll lay there a little longer because of it.

  • It could be a lot of things. It could be teething, but it could also be gas/belly pains. It could also be hunger pangs , especially if she's going through a growth spurt or she could be thirsty if the room temp has changed (like heat being turned on now that it's geting colder) It could even be nightmares. Unfortunately, it'll still be a couple of months before you can ask her! ;) You have to do the process of elimination for now.
