Try Woodward's gripe water?
Have u check her feet (any insect bite? Or itchiness?) mine cry but never rub feet unless itchy or pain?
Check her temperature?
Try to put baby to sleep... Method I tried
1. Massage (如意油）tummy and back
2. Massage head (baby oil or oil-free)
3. Music / sing song
4. Tissue paper (this was suggested to me by a malay grab/taxi driver) - hold a piece of tissue do swipe down motion on face (lightly) to encourage closing of eye (slowly, do a few times if needed)
5. When baby was younger, I'd use carrier as last resort to bring him to supermarket (very near and 24/7) walked a couple of round and he'd be sleeping after.
Check her gums. Use ur finger and run it along the gums. Can feel for little hard bumps. Likely teething already.
either prepare cold teething toys for her to bite or teething gel. If possible dun use anything. Let her get used to the pain. After a while she will get used to it and stop fussing.
Another possible is diaper rash or UTI. But UTI usually comes along with fever.
probably nightmares? scared of dark when suddenly awake.
hopefully a passing phase.. gotta reassure when she's crying or awake that there is nothing to be scared..
my boy 21 months also cant sleep well.. wakes up several times in the night.. sometimes makes whinning noises here and there.. he can even open door and walk to kitchen in the middle of the night...
if whine too long, i will hoot him with his pillow and he will guai guai fall asleep.
Rubbing of feet could be itch due to fungal or allergy.
Tabulate a before and after table i.e. any changes to food or places visited.
Also include the time of occurrence to determine if there is a pattern.
E.g. weekday more often or none during weekend.
I suggest get it checked out by a PD if it is unusual. A colleague's kid had some underdeveloped respiratory valve and often cried after milk. Seems just slightly odd at the point of time but it persisted so they went to a PD. Some meds were given and the kid's fine afterwards.
