I had one of THOSE nights...

where the baby just cried and cried and I had no idea what was wrong. I tried everything.

Eventually she was able to fall asleep with her head on my chest with me sitting up.

So sad. :(

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq

    Has she been sick? Is she getting sick?

    On those long-crying nights, it usually turned out to be either an illness coming on, or one of those ear infections that love to come along and torment a child who you thought was all better.

    Ugh, I feel for you. I agree with RCW - is she getting sick? Hopefully you can take it easy today.:-(

    Hugs. Hope she's a-okay and just had an off night.

    I feel your pain! We have had one of those nights the past two days. He hasn't been feeling good though. Damn teething... I hope your little one has a better day today!

    Thanks for the support. She's back to her old self this morning. She slept until 10am.

    Lilly has had a runny nose (with no fever or change in appetite) for weeks. We had her well visit last Tuesday and her chest was clear. She certainly could be teething. She napped very little yesterday. 10-10:45, 2-2:30 and 7:20-7:50pm. Then she proceeded to stay awake until 9:30pm. That's very little sleep for her, so something was keeping her awake. Maybe she was overtired.

    I just don't know. I'm hoping she sleeps better today.

    Aw, I'm sorry! Those nights really suck, and when we had them, I usually ended up crying with the baby. It's such a terrible helpless feeling! I'm glad she's feeling better this morning and I hope you have a better night tonight.

    Lilly played catch up yesterday. She slept until 10am and then took one long nap from 1:30-5pm. I tried to put her down for the night at 8:30pm but she was fighting it. I let her stay up another hour and tried to nurse her to sleep in bed. I really thought it would be a repeat performance, since she was crying at the breast and kicking her feet frantically. At one point I unlatched her to pull off my sweatshirt, as I muttered "I'm not doing this again, Lilly." When I turned around to put her back on the breast, she was asleep. And she slept through until 7:30am. :toothy7:

    Thanks for asking. I honestly think she was simply overtired from not napping.
