13 month old quit sleeping through the night

Ever since she started teething, my daughter has quit sleeping through the night. At first, it was just one week a month but now, at 13 months, she nevers sleep through the night. She wakes up at least 3 times a night and won't fall back asleep without a bottle. If I leave her in her crib (which is in our room), she'll cry for hours, until I get up and get her. The only way to get her to go back to sleep is to give her a bottle of milk. If I give her a bottle of water, she wakes back up after 10 minutes. If I just rock her or pace with her, she woke lay back down. If I let her sleep with me, she'll sleep for the rest of the night, but I don't want her to get dependent on sleeping with me. Is this something she'll grow out of, or do is there something else I can do? Would giving her her own room help?

If she's still teething then she is probably uncomfortable. I would give my son a dose of infant motrin or advil and that would help him sleep through the night. I think his molars coming in bothered him more than any of his other teeth.

My son is doing the same thing right now. It's because their teething and they need that feel of security because they are in pain and want to be comforted. Thats why they want to be in the bed with us because they know we are RIGHT there. Giving her her own room could help yeah, but my son has had his own room since he was born and he is still doing it. It's just a phase and she will grow out of it. She's probably just in paina nd it's probably hard to sleep...

My youngest son is 2 and he still doesnt sleep through the night. He is in his own room in a toddler bed and now he just wakes up and comes in our bed all by himself. He doesnt wake us up he just crawls in. I am lost on this subject as well. I wish there was a answer that would work for all. We tried the in his own room and letting him cry thing too. I just think that sometimes they need to be next to you and I know that he is the last child that I will have so I am going to enjoy it for right now and soon enough he will not want to sleep with us anymore and then i will miss it.
