8 month old bottle fed cant self sooth. She is up and down every hr or 2 every night. This has been since teething what seems to be her top teeth. She used to sleep through the night but the last 3 months has been up constantly any advice would be greatly appreciated 😴😴😴😴

Sleep training. We loosely used the Ferber method. Our baby went from waking every 45 minutes at 9 months to sleeping for 12 hours without waking within 3 nights.

If she's previously been a good sleeper it suggests the teething is bad. Have you given calpol before bed? It could also be a bit of sleep regression. Mine tended to have everything come at once so the sleepless nights went on for a long time but it does eve totally pass. U fortunately teething can last for months but I found it wasn't that bad after the first 4 cut through. Do you have a good bedtime routine? If you were considering sleep training all I used to do when mine woke up was go into her room, not talk or pick her up but rub her back until she settled back down, but wasn't asleep. We would also leave it 10 or 15 minutes before going into her so she wouldn't expect us to run in at any little cry. It does get better I promise.

At 8 months I'd expect them to know you'll run in 'at every little cry'. Likewise u wouldn't sleep train them. 8 months is very small.

I wouldn't, not u wouldn't.

@indecentfeminist OP asked for advice, it was given. Each to their own and all. I'm happy with my parenting ☺

Yes we do give her calpol but she wiggles around the bed that much too she is still so up and down. I think your right and we will just have to bare with it we are 2 teeth down so hopefully when the other 2 come it help her
