my daughter is currently teething horrible, obviously she is going to be a beast and cry like she's in agonizing pain, but is it normal for her to sleep like all day and all night, i swear shes only up for like 3 hours of the day.

Yes, Emma gets sleepy around that time. I think of it this way when you are sick or not feeling good i know i love to sleep it makes you feel a little better. If you are really worried call tellahealth or see your doctor. But if she is eating what she can and not feverish i think its fine.

Yep it's perfectly normal....just like if she goes through a spell where she doesn't sleep at all...lol....I've got 3 kids and my youngest (13 months) is bringing 4 teeth currently. It's great isn't it lol?

I Was Told If They're Teething, And Acting In Such Pain, Give Her A Dill Pickle, (Cold) And The Juices, Will Cool Her Gums And Calm Her Down.. I've Used That Method For Both Children.. And Both Of Mine Slept A Lot Too... Cranky,, Tired... Fever...

Sometimes I felt like my daughter was sleeping all day so I started timing how long she was actually sleeping and awake. It wasn't quite as long as I thought, eventhough it was longer than usual. Teething will definetly wear her out, especially if she is like my daughter and had 4 teeth coming in at once! She got her first two teeth when she was 5 months and had 16 by the time she was 14 months(!) I am a dental hygienist so I knew this was pretty early and it is pretty intense on a little one. If you give her a little infants tylenol to ease the pain, this can make her sleep more too. Her fever shouldn't run much over 99. if she is just teething. If it is over this, she could have a little touch of something that is making her sleep more too! Hope this helps :)

I think so!! my daughter would get fevers when she teethed. It really took a lot out of her. She's 18 mo and it's not as bad anymore. Depending on your daughters age she may also be going through a growth spurt which will take more of her energy.
