Waking and screaming

Alda - posted on 06/29/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




My twins are 22 months (19 corrected) and are mostly sleeping through the night. The problem I have is that, for the past few weeks, the one wakes up screaming her head off. After a nap (IF she decides to have one) and when she wakes up in the morning. She wakes up screaming, and it takes 20-30 minutes to calm her down. It's doing my head in.

Has anyone else experienced this and or found a reason or solution?

she might be going through a growth spert and is having pain or she might be having night terrors. My older son would wake up in the middle of the night screaming his head off like he was in pain or something and I couldn't figure out what was going on and it would take alittle while to comfort him but it didn't happen every night and he did grow out of it quickly. I would talk to your dr. because what you are describing sounds more like night terrors. and its better to be safe and descuss it with a dr. now then wait to see what happens. they told me my son wasnt having night terrors but either growing pains or just plain nightmares because they weren't every night but it is a scary even to wake up to at night I know it must be hard. I wish you all the best.
