DD really Fussy past few nights!

DD is 4.5 months. Past few nights she has gotten into the habit of being really alert before her last feed before bedtime (which recently can be anytime between 11am and 2pm).

She is dribbling loads and shoving her fist or stuff in her mouth so she must have a bit of discomfort with teething. I'm a bit miffed about it because she's just not up for boobs until we faff about for awhile trying to stop her crying which usually involves walking around with her.

Is this just part of the teething /growth spurt/sleep regression thingy? Will it last? Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions. Maybe there is something I can do for her!?

Sounds like it could be 4 month sleep regression

Google it, you will find lots of info on it smile

Try teething powders before a feed, they calm and relieve pain. It may be the pain of latching on that could make her reluctant to feed. You see the same format with bottle fed babies during teething i.e. refusing to feed.
