  • could be teeth or it could be something as simple as she wants to be with mom. If she is feed dry, not sick or gassy, try letting her cry and saying from another room every so many minutes"mom's right here" Try not to peek in alot as she will learn quickly "if I cry long enough mom will come in and see me."it may take a few nights or even a week but you are not hurting her by teaching her to self comfort. You are saving yourself many future sleep less nights.It's really hard but like I said, you are still a good mommy if you try it. Hope it helps, ds stopped after a couple nights.

  • She could be teething, she could be hungry or she could just need some comfort.
