So tired...

This little goofball
With her two little teeth (you gotta look closely)

Is making me a crazy person! She naps fine, and goes to bed fine, but all of a sudden is up a million times a night. Before the arrival of lefty and righty she was only waking up once a night for a snack and then right back to sleep. Oh no! Not anymore! Now it's up constantly for snuggles, for snacks, for the hell of it.
I'm sure it's the teething. In addition to the two that have already debuted, it looks like top lefty won't be far behind. I know she doesn't feel good. But holy cow am I beat. Any suggestions?

eeeeek, teeeeeeeeeeef! :)
no advice, other than coffee- and hugs.

No suggestions, but I feel your pain. Tylenol/Motrin for her, I used those teething tablets too. This too shall pass and will probably come up again in the future with all those teeth they have to cut. Poor baby and momma!

I'm just the MOM said...

CAFFEINE! lol She probably learning new things that her body can do during the day and thats probably why she keeps waking up. Well thats what someone told me...eh it works. lol but it will pass. She's an absolute cutie!

Oh man, 2 1/2 years later and my little guy still wakes up at night. Teething is the worst! Tough on baby, tough on mommy. I second the Motrin because it lasts longer through the night than Tylenol. I hope she cuts those suckers fast!

Check for a fever and try some childrens tylenol if needed otherwise nope, every parent pulls the overnight-ers.

I have seen beads that if made into a necklace can help with teething pain, the teething tablets (which I use for my babes), tylenol or motrin, or baby orajel. Other then that the pain will eventually go away and your little one will get back to her schedule.
Sorry your having a hard time!

Oh man! Bailey is doing this also! She has one tooth almost all the way in, and another coming! I feel like someone took my happy, sleeping pretty well baby!! It is making Mommy REALLY tired. I have no advice...we have been doing generic tylenol and Hylands teething tabs right before bad (and in the day as needed)...seems to help a little! In the day a frozen wash cloth to chew on and a teething ring from the freezer has been helping! We will just have to hang in there! I feel so bad for them!!

Cindy @ This Adventure, Our Life said...

Oh yeah, I have been trying to get a photo of Bailey's tooth and we have FAILED every single time... she sticks her tongue over it and all, Love Pie's photo!! Oh yes, and the "visitors" left yesterday!! I was dying!!

Hylands Teething tablets - Hudson still eats 3 of these before he goes to bed each night. They're all natural. Try them! They also make a gel, but I found that the tablets work better. They dissolve in their mouth. You can give them every couple of hours.

Of course, Motrin is always helpful too. Good luck!! I feel your pain b/c Hudson's getting molars right now. Ugh.

I personally HATE teeth growing! If you find she is uncomfy or something give her a half dose of tylenol or motrin. Or make you a pallet by her bed and get comfortable. Thats where I sleep lol!

Nikki said...

I second Sara's advice on the teething tablets. I just bought them the other day for Mia because she is teething as well. I think they work really well. I've noticed a difference. She still gets up for a bottle but then goes right back down. I think it definitely helps them! Good luck!

Brandi said...

Ugh. I would give mine a warm bath right before bed and baby Tylenol, if necessary. It's just hit or miss as to whether or not it works. Some nights it would and others not so much. Good luck!

purseblogger said...

I always gave mine baby Tylenol right before bed. But it is a hit/miss thing. That was one of my hardest struggles, not getting good sleep. I hope she gets back to a better schedule soon girl. Good luck!

Megan said...

Oh, I can see those teeth!! So CUTE! Especially since I'm just looking at a picture and don't have to deal with it in person...sorry. I wish I had some great advice! I remember Tylenol being a godsend for teething issues - for the babes and for me. :-)

chelsea rebecca said...

but soon she'll have a gorgeous little smile!

Taylor said...

look at her!!! omg. poor baby, I see those teeth. hylands teething tablets are a god send for us.

She's so cute. As you can see, so many have been there and feel your pain. Hang in there and try to nap during the day and get to bed early. It will pass.

I talk, then you talk, and sometimes I talk back again. It's a conversation! And we can all pretend we're not internet shut-ins who never talk to anyone. Hooray!
