  • there is nothing that you can really do. if your son is haven night terrors and you touch them turn on a light make any sounds it will only make it worse. my daughter has night terrors and and i took her to the doctor and they told me to just leave her alone and let her get throw it and that she would grow out of it. she hast had one in a few months so i am hopen she is done with them. good luck to you and your lil boy

  • He is just having bad dreams. My daughter had them...I decided that after I had tried everything I could think of, I got a book and sat in her room with her on my lap, she had her thumb in her mouth and her little blanket. I read happy stories to her for about 30 minutes and she goes to bed. Since I started doing that, I notice she sleeps through the night again and no more bad dreams. Try to make her a very happy baby before you lay her down.
