DS went through a stage at around 18 months where he had night terrors for weeks, it mainly happene on his daycare days when he didn't have an Arvo nap, then they stopped and things were good.
He's now almost 3 and they are back. We recently had bub number 2 (about 4 weeks ago) and he's had a few the past month or two.
Yesterday he didn't sleep at daycare again so last night he had a massive one. He screamed and cried and kicked and hit and the more I tried to settle him the worse it got. It lasted about 40 mins and he got to the stage of coughing and almost vomiting as he cried and screamed so much.
I don't know how mic more I can handle of this. With a baby waking for feeds about 3/4 times a night and having this night terror happen and keep us awake and wake us up (pretty much as soon as we fall asleep ourselves) it's just so frustrating.
I get annoyed as there is nothingi can do to comfort him he also asks for things like a drink etc and as soon as I give it to him he will scream and say 'no go away mummy' and kick me etc. If I take the water away then he screams again wanting it. This also happens when he asks for a cuddle etc.
I know online it says to not touch them or talk to them but I can't help myself when hes practically having a fit in his bed and I'm worried he will hurt himself
Any tips on how to stop them from happening in the first place or managing them when they do happen to make them shorter?
