hello! my oldest daughter who is now 3 and 1/2 has suffered from night terrors since 10 months of age and it still continues every night. She will sleep fine for the few hours or so and then she starts to thrash in bed, cry uncontrollably and scream as well...this lasts anywhere up to an hour plus and at times 2 or 3 times a night, and all i can do is ensure she doesnt hurt herself in the process and talk to her gently to help slow her down. i have been to paediatricians, doctors, trawled through the internet and there is no cure only that she will grow out of it one day and that its common. Mean time we have been sleep deprived for 3 years now and counting.... hope this helps you
