    Thanks lily - I have started going into him as soon as I hear a peep in the mornings, whereas I used to leave him a minute hoping he would go back to sleep (he's started waking up at around 4.30am). I also go in armed with one of his beloved match box cars and this seems to be helping a little. Instead of going into full blown meltdown he's just cranky and takes awhile to be ready to get out of bed.

    Default 2yo wakes in hysterics

    It's called terrors my dd has had them since 18mnths old I did too when I was little you should read about it but the worse thing to do is wake them if they can't hurt themselves where they are leave them alone to resettle and come out of it on their own the more you interfere makes it alot worse if u wake them from it it will cause them to be even more unsettled as they dnt understand why they are in that state my dd has 3-4 every week and I notice its worse when she's really tired or in deep sleep she's 4.5yrs old now my ds is 2 and has had a few too nothing like hers but its hard not being able to do anything but if u read more about it u will u understand alot more about it best of luck

    Default 2yo wakes in hysterics

    Our morning terrors can last up to one hour if I don't intervene and wake him up. I find it much easier to cope with if I actively wake him up
