Teeth, perhaps? Have you got any Calgel/Dentinox gel - perhaps rub some on her gums?

Tried everything.... been trying to ignor her for nearly an hour! Maybe calpol might be in order

Could you go for a walk with the pram? She might drop off then.

put her in her cot and go into a room where you can't hear her for at least 20 mins

she will be safe in her cot, she cannot hurt herself, she may even drop off to sleep

(I know how you feel my DD has 3 months on yours and yesterday / last night was a 'mare)

She is currently in her buggy, in the kitchen with the tumble dryer on!!!

When my ds was younger and still getting up for nightfeeds, he was a nightmare to try and get back to sleep, until eventually in sheer desperation I turned the hairdryer on - it worked like a dream. Thankfully we only had to do this for a few weeks.

Im too stressed to even cuddle her at the moment. Im supposed to be going to baby clinic this afternoon - knowing my luck she will drop off 2 minutes before we go!

Don't go, baby clinic isn't compulsory. I agree, leave her in the buggy or cot and get yourself calm first. Bet she drops off. 7am is great though! Maybe it is teeth and Calpol's worth a try.

just dosed her with ashton and parsons and a dose of medised. all quiet in the kitchen at the moment - half an hour of peace should do it before i go out - i need to speak to HV about poor little girls bowels!

ill leave her in the clinic - im not gonna get her weighed, just want a chat!

WideWebWitch Wed 09-Feb-05 13:12:02

Can't you ring them? It seems a shame to wake her if she's knackered and you need a break from her, when the hv could probably answer the question over the phone. Or post here for advice! Go if you want to obviously, but I wouldn't.

jessicasmummy Wed 09-Feb-05 13:12:17

THANKS GUYS! She is asleep!!! HOORAH! i can now relax with a cuppa!!!
