DD has been up hourly tonight but easily settled back to sleep. Since 1am (so almost two hours now) she will just not go back to her bed. She will fall asleep rocked or boobed but awake once put back to bed. I even took her into bed with me which I never do, trying to get her calm and back to sleep. I've just had to leave the room and let her scream for 15 minutes as I was at the end of my tether.
I don't agree with CC or CIO ( I'm not wishing to start a debate here, if it worked for you I'm glad you've found something that did but for me it's not an option) but I've literally had to go downstairs and let her scream for the last 15 mins as I had to leave the room from frustration.
She isn't hot, she isn't cold, she had been fed, cuddled, rocked.
What more can I do?
I'm at my wits end.
Why is it so hard, it's not the first time. She hasn't over slept during the day.
Could it be teeth? At 5.5 months? Or is it just bad behaviour?

Might be unwell , my DD always has a super unsettled night when she's coming down with a cold.

My dd has always been a terrible sleeper. Sometimes what I did at that age was get her up, and 'play' for 10 minutes. .. Then restart bedtime routine. Like swaddle, story, milk. ...
I did this after all else fails. It worked sometimes!!

My kids were both up for hours on end during the night when teething. Though they were usually happy....just wide awake.
So I think it could be teeth. Or illness maybe? Or just an annoying developmental phase.

That sounds like you need Panadol. My policy with Dd2 was 2 wake ups for no reason - Panadol!! Either teeth or coming down with something.

Could it be something you have eaten giving her pains in the tummy?

Ear infection? Often if my DS had a terrible night it would turn out to be an ear infection. He would be fine during the day but lying flat would cause pressure and pain in his ears.... I found rocking him in the pram (with upright seat) would often work - plus dymadon (as he disliked Panadol).
