Thank you for all your replies. It's nice to know I'm not the only one upset by this. But here's what i did yesterday, and she slept with hardly a peep last night.
I was thinking it might be the bed she was sleeping on, maybe she was uncomfortable. So, i switched the double bed we were sleeping on, with the Queen bed my dh sleeps on. The double is a better bed so I thought she would sleep better. Maybe not. I then took her out for the day and tried to wear her out, she had a good nap ( I actually find that she sleeps better at night if she has a long nap during the day. and we spent some of the afternoon at the park. I gave her homeopathic chamomile and chamomile tea, before bed, along with a snack.
(thank you for that idea, DaryLLL, i usually do give her something but a lot of the time she won't take it, I should try more frequently though. And that was a good idea to keep something, even water by the bed. The things we don't think of
I think the bed change made a big difference, she needed more room, and obviously slept better on a harder bed. But I also think that I need to make more of an effort to wearing her out during the day. She is a very quiet, mellow child and doesn't run around of her own volition that much. So, I think I need to make the opportunity for her to do it more often, or she won't be so inclined to wear HERSELF out.
I don't know if this will help anyone, and she might be right back at her restless self tonight. We'll see.
As for the constant nursing.... ??? i think she might be growing, and yes getting over a bit of a virus, and I'm sure the teething is partly the cause as well.
Thank you all! ~Holly
