Oh, and the only place I could find the Raz Baby Raz-Berry Teethers is Babies'R'Us. Couldn't find them at Wal-Mart or even Target. If you live outside of the US, you may just look online and see if any local places near you has them.

Definitely to blame on teething. What I did was give my son just a little bit of either Infant's Tylenol or Baby Orajel, or both, at NIGHT. That way during the day, my son could learn some pain tolerance but he could get a restful night's sleep. Also, teether pacifiers, like the Raz Baby Raz-Berry Teether, is really good. Shaped like an actual pacifier and has little bumps that really soothe their gums. I have also tried another brand, I can't remember which one, but they were flat with ridges. My son HATED those! He definitely liked the one that was more like HIS pacifier. And the teethers that you stick in the fridge are really great.

I would say try some of those and if it doesn't work, give her a little Orajel and/or a LITTLE bit of Tylenol. It helps ease the pain in their gums enough to where they can sleep at least 7 or 8 hours (at least for my son).

Teething is definitely a reason for her sleep pattern to change. My daughter slept through the night from 2 months to 4 months. When she started rolling over she started waking up more. We're working on getting her to sleep longer. I've been playing a CD when she sleeps that has rain on a rooftop (and other calming sounds) on it and that has helped a lot. You can sleep with her blanket and then the next night wrap her in it so she can smell you. She may just need a cuddle because she is teething and don't let anyone tell you that it's not ok to cuddle her when she needs it. This time will pass shortly.
