we cannot let them cry it out as they wake everyone else. the boy twin, went through nite terrors and is now done the hours of screaming but is still awake for long periods of wimpering and shaking. almost like having anxiety attacks. he is fine throughout the day and his afternoon nap is unbothered. any ideas

Conni: Pray for them, ask the Lord what is the cause of nite terrors. They need enough excercises to be really tired, shorten nap time. Don't eat food that is hard to digest before go to sleep at night. I certainly will pray for you and your 5 children. God does answer prayers.

I know this sounds hard but I had the same problem my 16 mo old was still waking not once per night, but 4 times per night... I had to take the risk of waking everyone else up to teach her. I actually had all bedrooms up stairs and living room and extra bedroom down stairs so for a week, I moved all the family down stairs until my 16 month old finally got the picture. Good luck.
