Night Terrors?

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

So are any of you experiencing this too? I have googled my fingers off on the subject. I also brought it up at Lily's 15 month checkup. Basically there is nothing one can do to stop these night terrors, and patience is key.
It sure does make a mom feel helpless though.
What are some of the things you have tried? My daughter doesn't scream, she just whimpers, sometimes for 15 minutes straight. She has no idea what she is doing because she is sleeping, and waking her is nearly impossible. I have only succeeded in waking her once, only for her to go right back into the same dream.
If you are experiencing these, you are not alone!!

I think my 16 month old son is doing the same thing. Every few days he just starts screaming in the middle of the night for no real reason. He appears to be asleep. I'm with ya on this one. Hopefully they don't last long.
