teething could definitely be the issue. Some kids take longer to sleep through the night though. It also depends what you consider "through the night". My 1st son didn't sleep longer than a 3 hour stretch until 8 months old. After that point, (that's when we switched him to his own bed) he slept 4-6 hour blocks. He slept a full 12 hour night for the first time on the night of his first birthday and has ever since... except when he's getting teeth in. =) My second son is 6 weeks old and is already sleeping 4 hour blocks, but he takes hours and hours to actually fall asleep at night. blaaaaaah! by the time he is asleep I've only got a few hours to sleep before my two year old wakes up. so tired. lol Good luck with the teething and I hope she starts letting you get more rest soon!

Teething could be the issue, yes. It could also be that she is going through a growth spurt and/or separation anxiety.
