How old is she?  Have you talk to the doctor about it?

Is she getting enough to eat before you put her to sleep? She might be going through a growth spurt. Trying feeding her more or right before you lay her down for the night.

If youre a light sleeper you could try sleeping with her. That's what I did with my son when he was that young and i NEEDED sleep here and there. I had one of those pregnancy body pillows that I curled around me so I'd stay half propped up and I'm a really light sleeper so him even moving woke me up... you still dont sleep very well but its slightly better than getting woke up every hour. I've even slept with him sitting striaght up in a rocking chair.. no clue how I pulled it off and my neck hurt liek hell but it worked lol

Wow that's a hard thing to deal with I'm sure. I wish I could help with that! I know I used to give my son cereal at night so he would sleep longer, but that's all I can think of!!

 You are NOT alone.. My son has been like this since day 1. He is 4mos on the 19th of this month. Nothing is wrong with them, some kids are just really needy. I co-sleep in order for me to get sleep, that is the ONLY way I get sleep. I also breastfeed, so when he wakes up for a feeding I'm right there and we can drift off back to sleep. I do feel your pain though.
