Recently my 9 month old daughter has been very clingy. She has been teething and we are using the teething medication and advil when needed. However, she isnt sleeping well, up almost every 3 hours at night, not playing with her toys (I kind of think this is because she is crawling and has discovered way to many cool other things). I am trying to let her CIO but after about 20 minutes I go in and pick her up and then rock her to sleep because I am struggling with her crying so hard. I feel bad for her. But I want her to be able to put herself to sleep again and to stay asleep. Tonight she was being rocked and started fighting me with laying still. I have put her in her bed. It now has been nearly 40 minutes. I go in and check her about every 20. At this moment she is not crying, but she might start all over if I go in there to check her. What are some suggestions from anyone who has experienced this? I am going to talk to her doctor tomorrow at her check up too. I know that the most important part of getting a schedule (any schedule) to work is being consistent. At this point I am just not sure what to do anymore. We are also breastfeeding and I am trying to break her from falling asleep at the breast. HELP!!!!!
