You could try keeping her in your room, a babygate across the door or close the door. That way if she does get restless or destructive you should hear it and you can redirect her to her bed
I had tried keeping her in my room at night (although she was closer to 4months old) and she chewed a hole in my wall. Granted, she has a lot more to distract her now with many toys. She has a elbow bone I bought her recently and she fell in love with it. She will trot around the house with it in her mouth all day. I want to give it another shot but still unsure.
