my son, 11 months old, woke up just a moment ago (he went to bed around 730, it's about 930 now), and he screamed, and didnt stop so I checked up on him. He immediately stood up with a gesture of "good you're hear please hold me". I picked him up and rocked on the glider and put a blanket over him, shooshing and quietly humming. He laid his head on my chest and fell asleep while sucking his fingers. The only time he usually wakes at night at all is if he's hungry, but lately for a few weeks He's been sleeping all the way through. Lately many strangers (all to him and some to me) have been cooing him all up in his face. I'm wondering if maybe he had a bad dream and screamed hoping me or daddy would come in, to ease his mind? Like I said he's never done this before. It really made me feel important, like an official mom, and very loved!Answer Question
Oh definitely! I think babies have them often just like we do and all the more since we are their solace and security. I often do wonder myself what babies think when there are people in their little faces making stupid noises and weird sounds, it has to bother them at some point. And just like adults, children have various personalities so some children may be frightened easier than others or simply annoyed with the invasion of their personal space~ I am glad you were close enough to hear him and rescue him from his thoughts:-) Good job Mom!!
