So I put my son to bed and he is fast asleep when all of a sudden he starts making noises like he is about to really start crying, it then gets louder and he wakes up in an extemely loud scream like he is absolutely terrified. He has done this quite a few times. He is only 3.5 months old could he be having nightmares? I have him on acid reflux meds so I am not sure if it just acid coming up and it hurts really bad, Has anyone else had this happen?

I wouldnt know about reflux, we didnt have this problem, but he my be waking up and finding he is alone and is really scared at 3 1/2 months old and even older infants want to be near you and like to know you are always with them. He probably thinks you are gone forever because at this age they dont know that when something is out of sight it dosent mean it gone fore good, this dosnt happen till about 8 months I think!

Tyr to keep him near you, or try to have him sleep on or next to a shirt to have worn that day, then when he wakes he might just snuggle with your smell and go back to sleep.
