  • Maybe she is teething or going through a growth spurt.

  • Very likely teething... molars will be popping through soon.

  • Could be either teething, or growing, but sometimes when they have tummy aches, or just dont feel good, they can do this too. Just make sure she doesn't have a cold or anything.... but also, sometimes they just need a little more hugs and kisses.... I would make sure to comfort her, but after a few minutes, I would leave her be. You want to make sure you aren't helping her establish a routine with this. I'm sure its just a stage, hang in there mom!!

  • My first baby used to cry and cry most of the time. Poeple use to give me so many diffreent reasons but nothing help. It was hard time, so hard, she cry at nigth and day time. I pulled my haire, I cried and cried, I yelled and scream. Hard time. She got better by time.

  • Try putting her to bed a half hour earlier - she could be overtired, also, sometimes they are just getting extra energy out, so what we do sometimes is leave the light on and give her a soft toy to play with and her paci and let her relax. After about 15 mins, she is fine and lights out, no crying......good luck!
