my daughter is 6 months old on the 7th april, and has been sleeping through (for the most part) for a few months now.
The past week or so, shes just simply refusing to sleep when we try to put her to bed where it had previously been a great routine that we never vary from...bath, feed, bed. I usually cuddle her a little and then put her into her cot, where she'll settle herself., but the last few nights its been awful.
Last night there was ltterally nothing more that we could think of to do, she had cuddles, feeds, gripewater, a little calpol (just in case) and then eventually we had to let her cry herself to sleep which took a further 2 hours with me and her dad camped outside her bedroom door practically holding our breath .
Ive heard that teething can disrupt sleeping patterns, and we're expecting teething any time now , but has this happened to anyone else, or does anyone think it could be anything other than teething? is there anything I can do, because Id rather do anything than let her cry herself to sleep :( any suggestions would be appreciated :)
