    Definitely believe in teething pain. Some get it more than others of course, and we had maybe a couple of unsettled nights for the first four. She got 4 molars over the Christmas/NY period and gone was a baby who would fall to sleep easily or take 10 mins to get rocked/patted to sleep. It would be an hour plus of screaming, she was not happy.

    She is a generally bad sleeper though.

    Default Did teething affect your bub's night-time sleep?

    Another believer here in teething pain. Those that say its a myth must be lucky to have babies not affected (since all are different).

    My DS is a great sleeper, slept through 10-12hrs since 7mths, always slept well during the day so far too. He's currently 17mths.

    But every time he has had teeth come through, he has had a few nights of bad sleep, waking 1-5 times. Recently he had 2 molars come through, which caused night wakings for nearly 2 weeks - awful when 34wks pg!

    Interestingly my DS doesn't get the typical red cheeks or anything either, so it's only the bad sleep that would alert me to new teeth coming through.

    When DD got her first teeth she got a cold and couldn't sleep at all. The next four, she surprisingly wasn't too bad, now with molars coming through she is dreadful..... Wakes during the night grizzling and drooling then nothing. Perfect sleeping for a few nights....I just want them to come through!!!!!

    So teething definitely disturbs our sleep. I've tried everything, sorry I'm no help. Just wanted to let you know I'm feeling your pain

    Hmm...what I'm taking from all these replies is that 'yes, teething can cause enough pain to wake baby up'...but not for weeks on end. Bummer I was looking for a easy, singular reason for DS's night-waking, but I don't think that's going to happen - I think it's a combination of factors. Thanks all the same, girls...Looks like it's going to be more nights of head-scratching frustration and exhaustion... *dejected*

    My children just tend to feed a bit more for 1-2 nights than its back to business as usual.

    We breastfeed and co sleep.

    I think you're right - I think he's going through a period of big developmental changes (but when aren't babies?), including separation anxiety. I also suspect teething gets blamed for a lot of unrelated symptoms when we just don't have a better answer. *Sigh...bracing for another rough night...*
