Jordan has not slept so well the past week. She's been waking at times that are unusual for her. Before she would wake some and fuss but go back to sleep on her own. (This is aside from her two nursing sessions during the night.) Now she wakes up sounding angry and just gets more upset the longer I wait to go in. When this happens I've been giving her Tylenol but last night finally tried some Motrin. She does seem to sleep better but one night that I didn't give it to her, she seemed to do better after I nursed her back to sleep.
So would you continue to give Motrin if she wakes and seems upset about something? Should I assume it is teething? I hate giving her medicine on a regular basis but I also don't want her to be in pain.
I just wish I knew the reason she was waking up.
