DD is 7.5 months. Until Tuesday night slept 6.30-5.30/6.00 with 1 maybe 2 wakeups. Last two nights 1st wakeup goes fine, then she wakes and takes ages to resettle (1.5-2 hrs). She's fed, clean, teething gel, comforted (pick up/put down), left to grizzle but always responded to when needed. What is it?!
Day sleeps (in same space and conditions as night) are beautiful (1-2.5 hrs),it is just at night.
We've no space to co-sleep unless on floor of her room and bed sharing won't happen cos of hubby's sleeping habits.
Any ideas and/or suggestions gratefully received!

It's probably just a phase or she may be feeling a little bit under the weather. Sometime for what seems like no reason at all DS will wake at 4 am and won't go back to sleep. Eventually I give up and our day starts early. The next night he is usually back to normal ?!?!?!?!

Books will tell you that if day sleeps are fine and only nighttime is disrupted, 'then it can't be teething'....not true in this house! Always sleeps fine during the day but nights are hard for a week or so whilst teething. Wakes up constantly.

It isn't constant waking. It is just one phase of night, usually after only feed, that she whinges and sooks and doesn't resettle. We do the resettling, teething gel, cuddles, patting, leaving room etc and, as a last resort, Panadol thinking she might have some teething or other pain. She has settled after that the last two nights so it might be teeth but who knows?!
Oh well, at least it is now rather than in 3 weeks when I'm back at work. I just hope it passes quickly!

My son went through a couple of phases like that. For no apparent reason he would just wake up and wont resettle. Day sleeps all normal, happy and feeding normal. When first half of the night is all fine. We couldnt figure out what was wrong with him at the time, he doesnt want food, hes clean, teething gel, cold cloth, checked his temperature, everything was fine. But a few days later we noticed his little teeth has cut through! So thinking back it must be it!
