  • She may be teething. Sometimes children go through phases where they sleep throught the night and all of a sudden wake up. My five year old still will wake up in the middle of the night. Maybe its due to her growth...does she eat solids yet cause rice or oatmeal may help fill up her tummy before she lays down...hope this helps....

  • Sometimes if my little one wakes up in the middle of the night I just give her some orajel and her pacifier and she goes right back to sleep.

  • Is it possible that she is teething? If so, maybe teething tablets will help her be in less pain so that she can rest easier. They are over the counter, all natural. Or talk to your doctor about Infant Tylenol drops for pain/discomfort. Hope this helps!

  • yeah shes definitely teething. i wasnt sure that she was until a lil tooth popped out the other day. i think the other is coming in too so that makes sense. i do give her solids before bed before her last bottle and i havent noticed a difference. she must just be in pain. i didnt realize that it would interrupt her sleeping but that would definitely explain it! thank all of yall. this was a big help :)
