My daughter is 7 1/5 month old and was a great sleeper after we used the Ferber method on her. She would sleep from 8-7am. I put a few pacifiers in her bed so if she woke up in the middle of the night, she would find one herself and put it in. She had been doing this since she was 4.5 months old. Within the last 3 weeks, she has been taking 2 naps a day and still falling asleep like she used to, however now she wakes up in the middle of the night for HOURS. She will crawl around on all 4s in her crib and try to pull herself up. She gets frustrated so she will start to cry, which is when I finally hear her. She is literally WIDE awake anywhere between 3&4 and will stay awake until sometimes 6:30am, which is normally her wake up time!!! I'm losing my mind. I've tried putting on her lullaby CD, patting her bottom until she falls asleep, etc...I know she is teething and her two bottom teeth are really close, but when she wakes she doesn't cry. She doesn't actually cry until she is mad because she is either stuck in her blanket from all her wiggles or she cries because she can't go back to sleep!!! I let her cry, but sometimes it takes hours. At this point, I am exhausted! Any suggestions?
