RESTLESS SLEEP

My 4 month old daughter is a terrible sleeper. I am not sure what to do. She was never a good sleeper, but now she is worse.She wakes every hour or so. She is very restless, if her dummy falls out of her mouth she wakes up. She is fed, bathed and warm before going to bed. Please help me, I dont know what to do.

Paediatrician

Many babies start with teething at this age and this may be your baby's problem now.Other common causes of disturbed sleep at this age are acid reflux or a blocked nose. She appears to be excessively restless. At this stage she should be over the colic phase. It would be best to ask your paediatrician to see her if your remain concerned about her restlessness.
