a few months ago my son, now 22 months, would wake up in the middle of night screaming so loud it scared me! sometimes it seemed as though he were awake because his eyes would open, but still... he did not seem like himself. sometimes i could cuddle him and get him back to sleep, but most of time he would lay face down on the floor kicking and screaming every time i tried to touch him... as though his limbs hurt... i dont know? anyway, his doctor thought they might be night terrors and said that he would be ok, and they might even go away with time. like a phase. well, it has now been months since it has happened..
now i have no medical background, but i know from personal experience that my kids sleep a lot longer and wake up in much better moods if they have eaten well that day. a happy belly makes a happy person.
