honestly i think it might be a bit of both. There is definitly 2 corners of a back molar poope through and she is more clingy during the day, walking around with her hand in her mouth but i think both parts are at play. Just not sure how good sleeping training would be if she is in pain.

Went for 7 and she went straight to sleep.  But woke at 20:10 inconsolable. Floods of tears, eyes almost on the floor just shattered.  Got her back down and so far she's been crying in and off  (in her sleep) for about an hour.  Poor girl.

So last time 4hrs and she would go to sleep this time 4.5 hours and it's over tired. 2 years old and I still can't get her sleep right.

Sorry you haven't had any replies recently. It's such a tricky time when they aren't sleeping well at nursery and trying to 2nd guess what BT. they'll need

How was the rest of her night and her day today? Any luck with a longer nap today or an EBT tonight to give her some catch up sleep?

Thanks honey.

The rest of her night was awful. Nw  22:10, 00:15, 4:10 then up at 7. Nursery today was nap 12:45 - 13:45 tried bt at 18:30 but screamed until 19:00

At home tomorrow so hopefully she'll catch up. I feel like every day is just a total guessing game that I am never getting right. I do think I need to sleep train too though as sometimes she just wants me to pick her up. I can lay her down 30 secs later and she goes back to sleep, she just seems to need me.

Oh no, she really struggles with her nights when OT, doesn't she? Do you think she needs a 6pm BT if she only naps an hour at nursery? (if that's even possible with pick up timing) Fingers crossed for a good catch up nap and night tomorrow.
