So my son is 3 1/2 and he's been waking up around 2amish for the past two weeks screaming and crying. He'll stand at his door of his bedroom screaming for me but he's never fully awake. My husband usually goes to get him and we will lay him down between us and he'll calm down. I'm not sure if it's night terrors or nightmares? He so tired during the day when he does have an episode so it makes me think night terrors but on the other hand he doesn't act crazy or out of control when he has one so I think nightmares. I google it and he seems to match night terrors but I'm unsure. Has anyone else had problems with this? If so do you have any advice? It so scary to hear him screaming like someone is trying to kill him in the middle of the night!
