Night terrors or WHAT?!!!

Angel - posted on 04/27/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son turned two in January. But for the past week he wakes up screaming and crying for what seems like an hour or longer in the middle of the night!!!! I try holding him and everything he just sits up and screams!!!! It is so alarming and annoying!!! I don't know what seems to be the problem! We recently moved about 2 months ago but besides hating to sleep in his own room this is the biggest problem! It worries me because he doesn't seem to be in any pain but he just cries uncontrollably!!!! I don't know if he's having nightmares or what but it is so scary!!!! Someone please help?!!!

Sounds like night terrors.

My daughter had them and her daughter, 17 months, has them too. There is nothing you can do. it is best to let them get over it on their own. It tends to happen more when there is teething going on or stress.

Jo, my daughter, is a doctor now and is finding it very upsetting as a mother. However, Imogen is the happiest of babies during the day and is advanced for her age.

If it happens often you should get a medical check up to be on the safe side.
