My DD was the perfect sleeper for so long, then within the last month she's become the WORST sleeper. She does not have teeth yet and I wonder if this could be why she's waking every 2 hours crying. She used to go to bed at 7PM, wake up at 4 to nurse until 6-7. Not now. She's up every 2 hours! I'm at my wits end and I'm tempted to put her in her crib to see if we'll get more sleep...ALL OF US! I am reading NCSS now, but I don't see how that book is going to help me.

I'd take naps with my dd during the day. It was a frustrating time but just know it'll pass.
And the whole 6-12 month period wasn't bad - for us it'd kinda cycle - a good week, a few bad weeks etc.
We are in the same boat! Elle has been doing the same thing ever since 5 months. I finally broke down last night and gave her the Hylands teething tablets and they didn't even help I am also reading the NCSS (I bought it last night) I am hoping it will help us. I cannot bear to let Elle CIO so if this book does not help we will just trudge through this stage and hope she gets past it soon. I wish I could offer you some advice but I have none. Just sending some hugs your way!!
