Teething and no sleep!

Teething and no sleep!

My daughter is 12 months old and seems to be teething. She only just recently started sleeping regularly through the night and now we seem to be having trouble with her sleep again. We use Ibuprofen to treat the pain of teething, but it is pretty difficult getting her to go to sleep (or go BACK to sleep! I was awake from 12.30 to 4.30 a.m. on Sunday night!).

I'm interested in others' experiences. Have you experienced similar things? What did you do?

  • I think it is awful! Long term sleep deprivation is disastrous for ones mental and physical health. The options are: alternate between parents. Or stick the baby in another room - which many peopl arent prepared to do (even though it was often done to them when they were small). One thing that shouldnt be allowed to happen is for both parents to get kept up every night. good luck!
