My son has just recently started having night terrors. He's 22 months old. He's always been a great sleeper and now he's waking up and just screaming and crying and thrashing himself around in his crib. We are taking him to the doctor this saturday morning to rule out anything serious (seizures, developmental disorders, etc.) but I used to have night terrors when I was a child too so Im pretty sure that is a big reason why DS is having them now. When I try to comfort him or calm him down he just screams, cries and thrashes worse than before I try to comfort him. What should I do? I feel helpless and its causing a great deal of anxiety because I feel I should be doing something. He has a great sleep schedule and we stick to a routine for almost everything, meal times, bath and bed time, naps, play time, etc. What am I doing wrong? Help!
