    It could be a night terror (is that what they're called?) My cousins son had them. I saw on the baby video monitor. He would sit up and just scream. I don't think there is much that can be done

    Probably night terrors.They start around 3 yo. I go in and comfort dd and turn a fan on for background noise. It seems to help. I think with ds they only lasted a few months so hopefully not to too long for your little one.

    Sounds like night terrors, I used to get them and my DS1 got them too. The best thing is to not wake them up. They won't remember anything - it isn't like a nightmare where you wake up feeling scared.

    It's so hard my DD was 3 when I had her brother that was around the time her night terrors started so I had two waking numerous times a night. They do pass eventually at what age I don't know but I can say get lots of support when your baby arrives otherwise it wears you thin

    Yup that is what my DS was like as well - he'd have his eyes open and talking, screaming, crying and then in the morning he didn't remember anything. Whereas with a nightmare, he'd be talking about the nightmare and when he woke he knew he'd woken up, calm down and then go back to sleep. He'd be able to tell me about it in the morning.
