Put some crushed ice in a clean washcloth, tie a knot in the cloth and let your niece chew on it. The ice numbs the pain. You can try rocking her or playing music to get her to sleep, but I don't know if that will work. She may be resisting sleep because she's in a different place without her mother, or she may just hate to go to sleep. Sometimes they do.
