The last few nights DS has been waking multiple times a night freaking out (I mean seriously screaming bloody murder). When I go in his room, the screaming stops almost immediately (once he sees me), and I rub his back for a few minutes and he is already back to sleep. He has never done this before, he used to wake up a lot but not like this (I think it was more out of habit before).
I have heard that with night terrors they are usually inconsolable, but that isn't the case. Just don't have any idea what suddenly brought this on.
Night terrors are when the kid is asleep. Like sleep walking. If he is awake. It is not a night terror. some people can not tell a person is asleep, because their eyes are open. They look awake. I could always tell my DD was asleep. Because she had a blank look to her eyes.
