My daugter is teething. She already has her bottome two teeth and now her top two are coming in. One has broke through and the other one not quite yet. What I was wondering is if anyone else's child is sleeping weird? Cheyann will sleep during the day like with little 30-45min naps but when it comes to nighttime sleeping she does not sleep well and wakes up like eery 2 hours. is this normal or has she gotten her days and nights mixed up again? Oh yeah she is 8 months old.

Exactly! I feel the same way. This little hump has been so hard on both of us.

My son woke up every hour when he was cutting his first two teeth. This lasted for about a month. Talk about exhaustion! I was more exhausted when he was 5 months old than when he was a newborn.

Thank you sarah! I use teething tablets and i agree they are a God send. I was using orajel till one of my friends told me about the teething tablets and i have never went back to orajel. they work so much better. I didn't think about giving her a little Tyelnol before bed. I usually give it to her when she wakes up but maybe if I do it before bed then she will sleep longer and i won't have to do it in the middle of the night. thanks!

My son just turned 2 and has almost all of his teeth, but every time he did start teething his sleep patterns got all out of whack. He wouldn't nap much during the day and sleep a lot longer at night. It happens. If she's waking up a lot she might really be in a lot of discomfort/pain w/ the teething. If you're not already, give her Tylenol/Motrin just before bed along w/ the Hyland's teething tablets. The teething tablets are a God send! They are homeopathic so they are safe to give w/ Tylenol. I'm not sure how exactly they work, but I do know that they just seem to relax my son enough for him to be able to sleep. Good luck!
