Hello, I hope I'm not the only mom dealing with this. My 2 year old has been waking up screaming crying at around 3am or 4am everyday for the past week! I don't know how to handle this. She's been sleeping great ever since she was 12 months. Can someone give me some advice of how to go about this. I've tried going in there to soothe her and when I try to put her back in crib she goes insane. I've also tried leaving her to cry for a bit, but she goes even more crazy and by that time she's already wide awake and won't go back to sleep! Please help please!!!

My son does the same thing! He will be two soon. He wakes up in the middle of the night screaming and runs away from me, and crying out "mommy!". When I asked his pediatrician about it, she said he has night terrors. They aren't awake, although they appear to be. She told me to be patient, eventually he will outgrow them. I try to hold him after he winds down, and rock him. That usually helps. Hang in there, I know it's tough!
