night terrors?

Thankfully my little girl (who is almost 8 months old) has been sleeping through the night since about 10 weeks. However, the past few months every night between midnight and 1:00 am, she screams bloody murder and cries! I don't think she ever fully wakes up, but she doesn't stop unless one of us goes in and gives her a binky or some nights we have to get her out of the crib and cuddle for a bit. After that, she goes back to sleep no problem. Is it possible that she's having night terrors? What could an 8 month old know about to have a nightmare or something? It's so weird. Has anyone else heard of this?

My little girl is 4 1/2 months and she's actually been doing something similar randomly over the course of the last 3 weeks. I'll hear her whimpering so I go in her nursery and she cries out a few times and then sighs and continues sleeping. She never wakes up through the whole thing. I mentioned it to her doctor when we were in last and she said it is possible she's having a nightmare. Anyway my little ones epsiodes aren't as bad as yours. Might be something to bring up to the doctor and see if there's anything they can suggest. Sorry that isn't more helpful.
