    Take a deep breath....you need to relax, first of all. If you are stressed, the baby gets stressed. if she is teething, then get a washcloth, get it wet with cold water and wring the water out. Let her suck/chew on it. 12 months, she's probably getting molars. Give her a bottle or cup of her fav. drink. That may quiet her. Good luck, sweetie!

    I'm so glad she has calmed down for you. If she wakes up again, just remember to stay calm, and don't let her know that you want to rip your hair out! Snuggle with her, babies love to have their backs rubbed, usually.
