I am in need of some advice....please help
March 25, 2013 at 12:05 PM

My baby is 15 months old and has been crying through the night for months now. i have tried tylenol and teething tablets/ soothing bath before bed. Nothing seems to work. Even with a paci in her mouth she still will cry. I have waited a little while to see if maybe she is dreaming or will go back to sleep on her own but she only gets louder and stands up in her crib. I haven't really had an all night sleep with her since birth. I did breastfeed her up until 10 months old and I am not sure if that's whats going on. She would wake up through the night then but I would nurse her back to sleep. Its every 2 - 4 hours now and I don't know what else to do. Any advice I surely will try except crying it out. - Thanks

    Maybe she is still hungry at night? Do you feed her when she wakes up?

    Yes but she cries while drinking it

    My DD is 9 months and we had trouble getting her to sleep in her crib from birth also.  She never wanted to.  After months of her trying and crying for over an hour at a time we gave up and felt hopeless.  She just wanted to be held and then she'd go to sleep.  Our pedi recommended a sleep clinic here in St. Louis and now that she's on the plan she's sleeping in her crib and taking naps there as well.  She does still wake up at times in the middle of the night but usually will cry for 10 or 15 minutes and will fall back to sleep.  We used to feed her everytime she'd wake up at night and no longer do that.  I know the clinic does phone consultations too.  We were at our wit's ends but are very hopeful now and all sleeping so much better.  You can email me if you want the contact info.  I don't know what else could be going on...I feel bad for her if she cries while you're feeding her too at night.  That doesn't seem right so there's got to be an answer out there.

    It sounds like she might be in pain. Have you taken her to the dr or a holistic chiropractor?

    I agree with abra that she might be in pain. What does her Dr say?

    is her mattress in her crib hard or soft? does she seem in pain during the day/during nap times? is your house a comfortable temperature at night?

    Did You tell her pedi what's going on? My pedi told me after 7 months old they should be sleeping through the night and if they aren't then we would look further into something possibly going on.....obviously every baby is different but by 13 months she shouldn't be crying like that anymore. Doesn't sound like a comfort thing otherwise she's take a paci or something comforting. Id talk with her Dr sounds like something more is going on.
