Emma is 8 months old. She began sleeping through the night at about 1 month. Lately, she has been waking up through the night and SCREAMING!!!!!!!! No matter what I do I cannot get her to settle back down. She is teething and I know her mouth is hurting, but as long as I stand over her and pat her back she is fine. Let me stand up and move away*!>%!!!
Last night I tried just letting her cry--scream. She could wake the dead!! She stands up and hangs on and just cries. The momment I approach her she settles and will lay back down. What do I do??????????? Is this also just a phase? I am worried that I am teaching her that I will come running if she pitches a great enough fit.
Does anybody have any suggestions???
