I have had the pleasure of having a well settled, well fed baby which has slept through the night since she was 8 weeks old (please dont throw things at me!!.. lol)
But she turned 5 months old yesterday and for almost the last week she has had me puzzled!
Thursday and Friday and half of saturday she would only drink less than 100ml each feed (normally 200ml) while feeding she would fidget alot and cry at different points. She only catnapped through the day (usually sleeps for 1-2hours at a time) and needed to be patted to sleep at night(usually self settles without too much of a drama).
Come Sunday she was back on track feeding and day sleeps but now wakes in the middle of night around 1am and again at 4am and cries.
The first night I thought I would give her a bottle as she might have been starving from the lack of feeds she had but she wasnt interested. Just gave her a cuddle and put her back down and has done this since.
She has been putting her fingers in her mouth alot and chomping on them. She has raised parts approx where your vampire teeth (the pointy ones) are on the bottom both sides but I cant see white bits though you have to be quick as the tongue is always moving!
If I put my finger in there she chomps down hard too. I definately wont be putting them in there when she has teeth!!!
Any ideas on what could be happening? I dont know what to do to help the little one.. she is happy through the day so it has me beat
