HI, is there anyone else dealing with Night terrors .... Kei seems to be having them, and I would love some suggestions !!! My husband gets up for Kei;s wake ups during the night (I am usually busy with our new little guy, who is 2 1/2 months old) and Im not sure if Kei'sreacttion is becuase he wants his mommy or if it is simply night terrors ... anyway, he cries uncontrollable and nothing seems to placate him ..... anyone like to comment ...would be great to get some feedback

and try to learn how to deal with this !

Does he have a night light? Our son has night terrors/nightmares as well. Sometimes he will just wake up screaming, which scares me a little too! But his father had terrible night terrors when he was a kid, and I have a sister who had them well into her teen years as well. At this point there is not much that can be done but to have a parent there to be with him and calm him until he is ready to sleep again. Sometimes this takes a while. We are also expecting baby #2 this spring, so all we can do is hope they get less frequent or stop. They just need to know that we are there for them and whatever they might need at this point.
