My LO is a little over 8 months old and I'm wondering if she's hit the 9-month sleep regression. She was doing really well sleep-wise--sometimes sleeping through the night and other times waking up only once and settling easily. A week and a half ago she got a cold and her top teeth decided to show up, so we had a few really rough nights and I chalked it up to her being uncomfortable. Now her teeth have both fully broken through her gums and her cold symptoms are gone, but she's still waking up to 6 or 7 times a night. What's confusing me is that most nights around the same time, she wakes up crying inconsolably and we have to rock her back to sleep. We've tried controlled crying and it makes it worse to the point where she starts gagging. Sometimes it takes up to an hour to get her settled enough to lay her back down without the crying starting up again.
So, does this sound like the dreaded sleep regression? What was yours like? I'm trying to determine if that's what is going on or if it warrants a call to the doc. Thanks ladies!
