Is this a sign of teething?

My daughter, who is almost 8 months old, has been sleeping through the night in her crib for the past 5 months. However, for the past three nights, every time we try to put her in her crib after getting her to sleep she wakes up crying. After multiple attempts, and several hours, we give up and bring her into bed with us. What is going on?! Is this a symptom of teething, or is it time to start putting her to bed, in her crib, awake, and letting her get herself to sleep?

seperation anxiity is what it sounds like my son went through that its normal and  a phase 

as for putting her to bed awake we started that around six or seven months i used the cio method bc all others i tried didnt work but there are many ways to sleep train that dont use cio :)

Oh, I'm not afraid of the CIO method...we did that with my nephew and it only took him a few days to get used to it, and he's a perfectly normal 4 year old boy. It does break my heart though when she really gets going with the crying.

 I agree, and the CIO method worked really well for us too. The first night was horrible, but after she went to sleep, she slept the whole night through. We were prepared for another horrible night the next night, but she went right to sleep! She was 7 months old when we did this, she's now almost 2.5 years old and has slept amazingly ever since!

it could be teething. or if she learned something new then they say that they will get up or be restless because they want to keep doing it.
