Also a sleeping issue
My baby has been a good sleeper and since 3 months she sleeps in her own room but suddenly she refuses to sleep in her cot and only sleeps in a bed. She is teething and seem to sleep and moun and cry in her sleep. She also sleeps half upright with her head on her knees, can this be pain. She is currently finishing her antibiotics for a slight ear, eye and throat infection (which they say comes with the teeth. Also her on tooth next to her big front teeth come out first(she already has her bottom front teeth) and looks like the other 3 are on their way, she's 8 and a half months.

Please help cause we need to get her out of our bed before she gets to use to it or will this pass?

At this stage it appears that she is teething.She has also recently had an ear infection. As regards her sleeping in your bed, if you want to stop this you will need to apply the controlled crying technique that is detailed very often in this Forum.
