Hi there I would like some advice from people who have experienced something similar. I know there are lots of threads on babies who won't sleep and although mine is similar, there is something unusual about it. My daughter gets plenty of fresh air in the day, a nap after lunch and goes to bed at 7pm. She zonks out straight away - yay! However, she will wake in the night (can be any time) and she can be awake FOR HOURS! She just can not, will not go back to sleep. We do give her a bottle of milk to go to bed with - always have done and whilst this is a comforter, it doesn't seem to help when she wakes in the night. She can be crying, stand up throw the bottle out, then cry because she doesn't have the bottle. It's as if she's trying to get our attention (but not as in a play-attention way). We try changing her, teething stuff, massaging her, etc but it just doesn't help. She will often go quiet again, then cry 5 minutes later - as if she's remembered she was crying and starts up again. This went on for 3 hours last night (and her record is 5 hours). It has been going on for a few weeks now and whilst I'm sure part of it is teething (she seems to be getting all her teeth at the moment), surely with teething stuff and calpol she should be able to fall asleep? We don't take her comforters out (i.e. the bottle) so it's not like she hasn't got what she originally went to sleep with? Is there anything I can do - has anyone gone to the doctors about it? My friend said get drowsy medicine for her (via the doctor) as that what she did (15 years ago) as the good night sleep 're-set' the body clock but not sure if there is any drowsy medicine the doctor could/would prescribe?
