    Default Advice needed 7 month

    Dd is teething. she wakes many times at night....3 to 6 times. so one night I gave her advil and she woke 3 times only.. stretch was from6:30 to 1:30 which is awesome and then she woke two more times 330 and 530 and then a 7 to stay up.
    Next night I gave advil and pumped bottle for dh to give and she slept 7pm to 4am and woke again 630 for the day.

    Advil is helping her but I can't do it everdaywhat should I do... I can't keep waking so many times and dh cant help plus she is in pain. I also have DS, 3 years, also waking me once a night.

    I gave bottle b.c I feel supply Is so low at night b.c she does feed during the day every 2 hours still regardless of the solids I give twice a day.

    You can do Advil every night. We did. For a YEAR. Our third kid...teething really upset him. He wouldn't sleep. He would cry. So he got Advil at bedtime every night. When it was really bad, he got Tylenol too.

    Bottles will make a low supply even lower unless you pump. Don't do that. Nurse.

    Yes I did pump while Hubbie gave her bottle. I need to start making a small stash for when I return to school.

    I am nervous though about giving advil every day.

    If YOU were in pain, would you take an Advil every night?
