  • I swear my 15 month old has nightmares. I don't know what she is scared of, maybe the dog or something, she isn't old enough to tell me yet! LOL

  • LOL

    My son did at that age, too. It's normal. She may be dreaming she is hungry or has a wet diaper or can't reach her dolly.

  • My daughter is almost a year, she wakes up and cries b/c she doesn't quite know how to put herself back to sleep or she can't find the paci, so I have to lay her back down cover her up and give her the paci.

  • My son is 15 months and he's done that for a long time now. Sometimes I'll be sitting on the computer and he will start SCREAMING like someone is torturing I fly up the stairs into his room........and he's sleeping. lol I'm not sure what causes it....sometimes he wakes up and cries but I just give him his binky back.
