I hope that someone can help or advise please, my little girl is just 6 months old and has too over the past few weeks startred to cry in her sleep, she has a dummy for sleep which once fast asleep she spits out, and when she startrs to cry i go into her room and put in her dummy. she is fast asleep when she is crying so i know that she isnt awake and crying for anything else or her dummy, although her cry doesnt sound distressed, it has been getting more frequent and last night i went in 14 times between 1am and 7am? i hope someone has some experience of this and can advise us......many thanks in advance.... a very tired chrissy & baby Kathryn x
we had the same and you will find she will grow out of it.
We tend to have it now when my dd is growing or teething. she is 9mth old.
i read it was baby nightmares/ dreaming as they are just starting to dream at this age. Unfortunatly there is nothing you can do to stop it. Have you tried leaving her a bit to see if she settles herself. We put 3 dummies in the cot with dd so she finds one herself.
thanks for the reply, i guessed that this was the case, as i have tried everything else, she is not too cold or warm and doesnt want food, i have noticed that today her gums are really white and was told that this is a sign that a tooth may break thru soon, so hope that this is what is causing it and it may settle once one pops thru, i have tried leaving her, but because she is asleep whilst crying she wakes herself up and is then difficult to settle. we have been lucky as she has slept thru pretty much from 10 weeks old so i am really not used to it, but am more worried that it could mean that she is not happy or having nightmares.....

could also be teething the reason for the crying??
love julianne xx
kathryns first tooth popped up on xmas eve, so we think that may be the cause, although we think it may be noise as we live on a busy road used as a cut through by lorries throughout the night so dont know really, just hope it passes soon as we are all like zombies here! lol

aww bless!! ive a little boy who will be 10 months on jan 10th.we are having teething issues ourselves at the mo. his 6th tooth is prooving to be a bit of a pig! he still sleeping 12 hr nights just dribbling and a bit clingy during day.i have found that it was worse with 1st teeth.now, i think hes used to it a bit and we find we dont need calpol as much. btw...have you tried calpol night? its great coz it has a sleep aid in it to relax babies as well as paracetamol. also can use with ibrupofen too.thats good coz has an anti inflamitory in it too.
thanks julianne, can see another line on her gum next to first tooth so think the second is on its way, will have to try the night stuff, have had 2 nights of no sleep now, feel awful for kathryn it must hurt so much, try not to give to much calpol as she wud be on it all day everyday at the moment and i am asthmatic so dont want to risk it for her, will try ibrufen to be honest didnt get that cause again the asthma thing as i can hae it myself....thanks for your help....

check with your pharmacist about what you can use. to be honest i havent used the calpol night and ibrupofen together coz it seems a bit much.a dose of calpol b4 bed wont hurt her. so dont worry.also anbesol is good. its a liquid local anaesthetic which you can put on gums which numbs the gums.so they cant feel the pain. its good stuff.i also put some onto charlies dummy at bed time.be careful when you ask for calpol night coz last time i was given it for toddlers and only noticed at last min it wasnt the baby one.nearly wet myself.lol. pharmacist couldnt stop apologising!!!
my little girl is 6 months and has started to cry in her sleep to. she has two teeth that have come though the gum but i think she has another 1 coming. ive tried everything. i put her dummie back in and she goes back to sleep staright away. does anyone know when it will stop? im a first time mum so any advise will help
my DD is 11 months and has just started doing the same, i think its teething, we've been told all sorts of advice from control crying, to ignoring, to giving porridge before bed etc nothing is working, she woke up 1.45am last night and again at 5am and then her normal wake up time. I put her dummy in and she goes back to sleep.
So I'd like to hear the advice too please
so actually what happens when the baby cries at night? I see the signs of teething yet to be seen. is he hungry? or what?
sorry if my english not good.
