If it's not night terrors, is there a night light in his room. My oldest had a period of time when she was about three that she would wake up screaming. She would wake up and be disoriented and scared, all it took was to put a night light next to her bed. It took me a couple of weeks to figure it out, I couldn't believe it was something so simple, and I lost so much sleep. I hope it's simple for you too and you figure it out quickly.

It sounds like he or she is having Night Terrors. Night Terrors can start at 2-4 years. If the baby is doing every night around the same wake he or she up and wait about 15 minutes and then put her or him back to sleep. Also make sure that he or she is getting enough sleep including naps. Night Terrors are common in children they come from your brain not shutting down properly. Your brain goes through four stages before actually being in a deep sleep. Night Terrors happen in stage 3 to 4. Google night terrors also try making a routine for the baby so that the baby knows that hey its time to shut down because if not then his or her mind is just going to be active and that can trigger night terrors.

I don't think you can make him want you only if there are multiple adults involved in his child care. All you can really do is show him by example, repeated unconditionally, that you are 100% someone he can trust to provide comfort at the times when he needs it, like in the night. Calmly and gently telling him that ' Nany's not here, but mommy's here', soothing him and reassuring him etc. should eventually reap the result that you're looking for. Just make sure that if you are feeling hurt that he's asking for someone else, that this doesn't show in your voice or body language when you deal with him. Be there for him and love him and he'll get the message.



ETA: My toddler daughter often used to ask for 'dada' when upset and refused to come to me for comfort. We went through a similar thing and now she'll take comfort from whichever parent is there. I know it's hard, but just try not to take it personally as they don't mean it that way.
