I have a 8 1/2 month old son. He has never slept through the night with the exception of a couple of nights. I do not mind the one feeding in the middle of the night he asks for... He is a big boy and gets rice cereal in each bottle to help with GREDs. My problem is that around the time I am going to bed he starts to scream and cry but when I go in there he's not awake... He is sound asleep just crying and screaming in his sleep. I put his paccie back in his mouth and give him is lovely back without waking him and he quiets down... Is this something that some babies do? Has this happened to anyone else? Please help first time mom here.

Sounds like night terrors, there similer to bad dream but they can't wake up. All you can do is try and comfort your baby untill he settles down again, talking to and physical contact sometimes help but not always. My cousin had them realy bad and he eventually out grew them.
