Hey fellow moms! Anyone have a little one who suffers from sleep terrors or night terrors?,, my 3 year old has had them since she was about 18 months old. I feel so helpless,, not much I can do about it other than making sure she doesn't hurt herself . I saw an advertisement online for a device called the Lully,, I guess you put it under their bed, it supposed to vibrate and help ease them out of the sleep terror episodes. Anyone have any feedback on this? any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you Amanda for the reply!! I took my daughter to the pediatrician yesterday for her checkup,, I spoke to her about the night terrors,, she said there really isn't anything to do for it ,, or any specialists to see for it,,, we just have to wait for her to grow out of it,,, She did suggest giving her some warm milk at night as she thinks that may help settle her down a bit better neurologically which makes sense since warm milk is supposed to help people sleep better.. we did try that last night,, and she didn't have any episodes at all,, now, I don't know if the warm milk had anything to do with it,, but she definitely slept better last nite. you might want to try that with your daughter if you haven't already. it definitely can't hurt! Good luck to you!!!!

Hi,
My daughter will be 3 in September and she has had night terrors since she was about 15 months old if I remember correctly. I feel helpless too when I watch over her as she has one. She will start screaming in the middle of the night which wakes me up and immediately puts me in a panic. I run in her room and hold her as fast and as tight as I can. Before I read that you shouldn't try waking them up during there night terrors I would try waking her but that either didn't work or made things worse. So now I just hold her and whisper, mommy's here baby. It makes me feel so bad for her. What could such a young child be dreaming about that puts them in such a terrified state. My daughter has never experienced anything bad yet in life so I don't understand how they can dream of something bad.
I'm sorry but I don't have any advice for you I just saw your post and noticed there wasn't any replies yet. I just wanted to tell you your not alone.
Amanda
