Could be teething or a growth spurt

Sometime between 7-9 months there is usually a sleep regression or disruption in the norm. This can be due to teething, a growth spurt, new milestones, new awareness of surroundings, separation anxiety, or any combination of those. The good news is that it is a phase and does end.

Have you tried changing the time she goes to sleep? She may not be tired at the same time. Or she may just need a little extra reassurance that you are nearby and need some extra love. Have you tried rocking her? Putting her to bed asleep? Have you tried some teething remedies? White noise or soft music? These things may work, they may not. It really depends on your child. She may act like this for a few more weeks but will likely start sleeping again soon. You may just need to be patient and wait out the phase :)

I rock her to sleep, and have music on. But I am glad it is a phase, hopefully it will end soon!

All three of mine went through it in varying degrees. It does end but it can feel like forever while you are in it!

If she used to sleep well, she is probably going through something (growth spurt, teething, she might be in pain?). You'll want to look into that stuff before trying to teach her to sleep. If nothing is actually wrong, then you might want to consider helping her cultivate healthy sleep habits.
