LADIES PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
This has happened since he was like 3 months old! The doctor in St. Louis was VERY passive about his answer when asked if these could be night terrors!! My baby wakes up in the middle of the night SCREAMING at the top of his lungs, body shakes sometimes, other times his feet are moving like he is running, eyes may open but they are up in his head, non responsive, stiff body!!!!!! The episodes last anywhere from 10-45 mins! Once they are over he falls peacefully to sleep! Now he hasnt experienced one of these episodes when he is asleep in the bed with my husband and I. SO if all I have to do is keep him in the bed with us, then so be it!! BUT WHAT CAN I DO? I whisper Jesus' name into his ear and I can say since I have done this, the last 3 times are only lasting approx. 10 mins. Before, because the internet says not to talk to them, the episodes were approx. 30-45 mins (attributed these late night wake ups as possible 'night terrors')
Can anyone shed light on this for me?
(forgive my grammar and any spelling errors, its 3am & I am not able to sleep)
