    Default 9 month old with sleep issues!

    My DD just turned 9 months old on Monday, she has always been a wonderful sleeper! Since she was a month old she's been sleeping through the night, and if she ever wakes up during the night I give her her soother and she goes right back to sleep.
    Well this week has been pure hell for us! She has been going to bed around 10pm.. which is normal for her. Now she's getting up at around 1:30 am and staying up until 3:30 or later! She's absolutely miserable, won't let me put her down, whines and screams the whole time. She's actually been taking a bottle too. I am thinking she may be teething.. but her gums still look the same no teeth in sight!
    I tried giving her advil.. didn't work. Tried Camilia.. didn't work...
    Not too sure what else to do! I guess I was spoiled for 8 months with a great sleeper.. am I doomed?????

    What do you think???

    What is she doing developmentally? Is she pulling up in her crib? Does she know how to get down if she does pull up? I don't think you are doomed but it may take a bit to figure it out.

    DD was like this as well at that age. I chalked it up to teething. I don't really have too much advise except to go with the flow and it will eventually pass.

    My DS used to sleep through the night until 2 weeks before his first tooth came in (that was 4.5 months ago). He still wakes up through the night, sometimes only once, but some nights 2-3 times. I also recently heard that when babies start something new, eg:crawling/pulling themselves up on things, they kind of dream about it and that can wake them up? I hope it will all pass soon....

    Is it an ear infection maybe?- just seems odd to come on all of a sudden.
    I have 4 boys ages 7, 5, and 3 and newborn

    well the doctor looked in her ears at her check up on Tuesday... she didn't say anything and she doesn't have a fever. But she does this weird head shaking thing... we thought it was dancing.... hrmmm...

    Happened to M when she had a very nasty ear infection. Otherwise, she sleeps through without problems.
