i know, my baby starting haveing night terrors about a month ago...and I feel so bad for her. She has four good nights and then a bad night. They come and go. I feel so bad for her, so I have been trying to give her a massage and sign/read a book to her before the bath to make sure she's as relaxed as possible by bedtime...

I was told there is really nothing you can do. When they have these night terrors all you can do is try to comfort them as much as you can.

My 14-month-old has them every once in a while, will wake up crying, sweaty and confused. Holding her for a little bit and singing to her calms her down, and she goes right back to sleep. You feel so badly for them though! :(

My 4 year old son has them. Not very often. He'll wake up crying or screaming and he is inconsolable. After about 10 minutes or so he will go back to sleep and he doesn't remember anything the next morning.

Yes, both my children actually. My 7 year old had them nearly every night from age 1 until she was nearly 4. Now she has other sleep problems.

My son started having night terrors shortly after he turned one. His are "easier" though. They aren't as intense and don't last as long and he doesn't have them as often as our daughter did.

Best thing to do is just comfort your child until he/she falls back into a peaceful sleep. And try to get a good night's rest as often as you can.
