My LO is 4 months old about 2 weeks ago she started this sudden screaming thing. She'll be sound asleep and suddenly her eyes will pop open and she'll let out a bone chilling scream. It was so bad the other day that my dad wanted to take her to the emergency room.
I haven't personally witnessed this, she seems to only due it during the day when I leave her with my parents and then at the babysitters.
Anyone else had this? Any suggestions? I am getting desperate.
My LO did something kind of similar the other night. He didn't scream, but he started really crying out of no where while sleeping. He was not still asleep either, I ran to him because I thought that maybe his hand got stuck in the crib bars or something. I had to give him a little more formula to get him to settle back down. I don't know if it is possible, but I thought maybe a bad dream or something???
Ruby did the exact same thing the other night. She wasn't sleeping well and I was up and down with her dummy falling out and disturbing my OH so I went and slept in her room as we have a bed in there, and suddenly she started properly crying, like she was having a really bad nighhtmare, she didn't wake but was almost hysterical! Wonder what makes this happen?? Is it something to do with them growing? Think 4 months is a big mental developement age?
DD did this once and it scared the life out of me..It was like a really painful scream almost as if someone was hurting her..She hasn't done it since (touch wood) but to this day I don't know what caused it..She didn't seem to remember in the morning and she was fine her usual self but also didn't wake when she was screaming..Maybe a bad dream?
Bobby still does it sometimes - and when I get in to his room he's standing at his crib looking absolutely mortified like he thinks he's been abandoned. I'll pick him up and cuddle him, shush him and tell him it's okay. It breaks my heart.
