I think my 2 months old had a night terror. She fell asleep on my chest one evening and slept for 1 or 1.5 or so hour. My husband took her gently from me and put her in her crib sowe could eat diner. She slept in her crib for about 5-10 minutes and suddenly she started to breath very fast and cry in her sleep. When I took her immediately from her crib, she was still.asleep. Hovewer she was still breathing fast and crying in her sleep. We tried to wake her up but we could not. Then, my reaction was to clap my hands to wake her up. She opened her eyes but it seemed she was not aware of where she was and who was with her. She was still breathing fast and was not there. After couple of minutes, she calmed down and smiled when she saw me and my husband and then she fell asleep. After that she wa fine. What should I do to take care of my baby when she has night terrors or nightmares?

Definitely a pediatrician question, that sounds scary! If she's fine now, I would call the doctor and alert him or her about what happened and then wait and see if she does it again tonight. Hopefully this was a one time thing. :-)
