My Little boy woke up scared last night.Advice Please.


Hi.My little boy usually has no problems going to bed or sleeping at night but last night he woke up about 2 or 3 times really badly screaming and he was so so scared.I knew he wasnt sore as Its not his sore cry.I brought him into my bed and it even then took him ages to clam down.He was like that this morning when he woke up too.Does anyone know what could have made him like this?Im abit worried.Thanks.

was he acknowledging you while he was screaming and crying or did it seem like he wasn't 'there'? wsa he responding to your comforting or almost fighting to get out of your arms?
It sounds quite possibly a night terror

this has happend to my little girl and it took us about an hour to calm her down. me and other half sang her fave songs in the end to sooth her and it really worked.

at the time i either thought it was a night terror or trapped wind either way its so scairy when they wont calm down.

If it was a night terror then he wouldn't have known you were there at all I'm afraid... all you can do is wait for them to come out it. Tobi can take up to half an hour to come out of his when it is bad!
We tend to pick him up (more for our benefit then his) and hold him on our shoulders and walk around with him, patting/ rubbing him on the back gently and talking to him to try and start bringing him out of it (they used to say you should force them out of it, but now they say you can gently bring them round) then as we can tell he is starting to come aware, we move into anthoer room with low lighting and he will come round. The usually within 5 mins he is sound asleep again. But this can take up to 45 minutes.
he is never the worse for it the next day and is always up at the usual time (unfortunatly).

See if it happens again, and if it does, is it the same time of night, is anything happening as it did last night and see if you can find anything that is affecting his transitioning from one sleep cycle to the next.

Darcey has this too, twice now and its so scary when it happens, i didn't realise it was a night terror, first time she didn't want to be held, or put down and it took over 30 mins for her to calm down...the second time i picked her up and took her into the kitchen with the light on and she came too as it were and stopped the hysterics right away. What causes this??? It so horrible, more so for us as we can;t soothe them for a while.
