My DD has always been a great sleeper. Would sleep 6-8 hours through the night since she turned 1 month. However the last couple weeks she has barely been sleeping. I try putting her down for bedtime and she takes hours to fall asleep. For instance ill start her bedtime routine at 8 and she won't for to bed till 3-4am and even then she turning and tossing and half awake. I think it's because she is teething, her cheeks get really red, she is tired but so irritated. And she is constantly chomping on her fingers. I just don't know what to do, I am getting no sleep and neither is she or my DH. Any suggestions would really help. Thanks !

I actually started giving her rice cereal a few weeks back and she started sleeping 11-12 hours a night. Then outta no where the no sleep started. So you never tried orajel? I read that can work. I will look into the pills thanks

Way back when when my girls were doing things like that I found it to be one of two things. They just didn't feel content in their tummy so I added alittle rice cereal to their milk at there last bottle for the night.And yes the other one was teething I always gave both of them Humphys but now they call them teething pills. It stoped the drulling and they were able to sleep because they calmed the nurves down in the mouth. They were a big blessing!!!Ask you Phars. about them if you will fill better asking about ?s
