I have a 2 year old little girl and for a long time she used to sleep in her crib with no problems. Probably close to two months ago that all changed. She started waking up screaming... Not just screaming because she was wanting me, screaming rolling around the bed, arching her back, huge tears and completely inconsolable in a rage of panic. Of course the first time this happens I freak out, pick her up, pace with her until she calms down close to 30 minutes later. This happened at least once every night. The doctor said this is the age night terrors happen. She is terrified of her crib, so I put her to bed with me. Please don't judge me because of that, I am a single, working mother of 2 and I need sleep or would like it anyways! Well, she now wakes up every hour, tossing and turning, crying for her binkie (that we had quit using) I am concerned... Wondering if anyone else has had this experience, if she will grow out of it, if it's something I should press for more answers with my Dr.
