Night Terrors! Every male in my family had this. I remember it used to scare the hell out of my when I started babysitting my little brother at night. I was fourteen and he was eight. He'd get up and just scream like someone was hurting him. My mom is nurse practitioner and had to sit me down and explain to me that it's just something that happens. The only thing I could do is let my little brother wake up and the give him some chocolate milk. :) I am happy to say though, my little guy has only done this once... so far...

My son did night terrors. Usually they go away by themselves. It is like sleep walking but for little ones. It is scarry but make sure they can't get hurt themselves and they usually will go back to sleep when they calm down give them a drink if they will take it. Don't force it but wouldn't you be thirsty after that.

Well it could be teething ( orajel ) or stomach pain ( we used mylicon ) or Is she having night terrors ?? my daughter had night terrors for two months when she was 18 months old . She cried for more than an hr . She was inconsolable banging her head backwards crying howling biting . Doctors say not to wake them up. But that was impossible . So we used to wake her up . Make her watch tv. Listen to some calming music . Sing the fav song u sing to her every night . Give her hot milk to put her off back to sleep. Hope this works.

my son woke up like that the other night, i found out it was his teeth, he had 4 trying to cut through at once, i dont know for sure but its a possibility, check her mouth for any new teeth coming through adn if you see or feel any then try rubbing nighttime oragel on them, then cuddle her back to sleep. hope this helps, i only know what i do with my son
