Hi, i am new to this forum ting but i am after some advise or opinions to my situation.
My son is 18 months old, healthy as far as i know and has never really had a sleep issue but for the last 4 nights he has been waking up at the same time (12.30pm) every night, crying his little heart out. Once i pic him up his quite calm and tends to fall asleep again within minutes, once i put him back to bed within an hour he is awake crying again, so i hve been sleeping with him on the lounge, the most concerning is the fact that its like he is to scared to go to sleep, everytime he goes to close his eyes he will quickly wake up in a fright kicking and throwing his arms around till im able to assure him everything is ok. There was even one incedent where i had my arm over my head and there was a shodow of my hand on the lounge and i musthave been moving my hand slightly and when he noticed he started to hit into the lounge where my shadow was. Im not sure if its mejut being paranoid, but this has happened a week after my 9 yr old son was waking up for a couple of nights sayng he could here foots steps in the hallway, or if maybe there might actually be something wrong. I am at a loss
