My 2 1/2 month old daughter screams bloody murder sometimes in her sleep. Lately its been taking 5-10 minutes to console her. Its progressively gotten worse as she has gotten older. Does anyone else's LO do this? What have you done to help their fears? I've read that seperation anxiety, reflux (which she has), the birth process and loud noises can cause nightmares. Her room is dark, quiet and a little cooler than the rest of the house. Hubby and I dont fight in front of her, i do think she has seperation anxiety a little. I just dont know what to do. It breaks my heart listening to her cry for so long. Any suggestions?Answer Question

It is call night terrors, What ever you do..DO NOT WAKE her, she will become scared of you waking her, and that will make her jump. Let her cry it out. She is fine. The earlier the child has them the better, they will go away a lot soon, then if she was to get older and have them. (My dd had them too, Doctor said, its their way of adjustment to being out in this new place. They will go away/stop.There is a small chance they will go and come back, when she gets older. But its not likely.
