Sleepless At Night

Ahhh--my dd has been waking up at least two times a night now. She normally goes down at 7 - 7:30pm then is up at midnight, then two, then when I get up to work she gets up... I am bfing her and have reintroduced rice cereal about a week and a half ago. (What a myth they sleep longer). She may take a couple of naps during the day but they are not longer than 1 hour. She used to sleep from 7 - 3 am and that was decent, now, oh my gosh what to do? I am pooped. I don't think enough coffee in the world can wipe the sleepiness out of my face. She is 6 months old... I haven't let her cry it out only because things seem to become worse.

I don't know if I can help you here (sorry). But is she maybe teething? Sometimes when babies are teething they will awaken more during the night...after you think they are in a great routine, bam, here comes the teeth and sleepless nights again. Other than teething, Im not sure. Hope that helps some.

My first thought was teething also. Do they have teething tablets in Italy? I have also given dd a dose of tylenol before bed. Dd was not grouchy during the day like I thought she would be. She only gives me fits at night.

Ear infection? My daughter was always an excellent sleeper. One night she woke crying and couldn't get settled. My hubby and I new something was off b/c it wasn't like her. She had her first ear infection at 8 mths old.

The OT who works with my daughters says that when a settled baby starts waking up more at night it might mean that they are about to accomplish a major milestone. Good luck.

Thank you for the tips everyone. She could be teething. I don't see any indication, however, I could be totally wrong. They do not have the tablets here, however, we are going back to the US to visit family and have a HUGE shopping list. Thanks for the tips. I am hoping it will change, but then again, we are flying 15 hours... Who knows what this will bring. Oh the joys. I love her to pieces.
