My toddler's been waking up a lot at night lately, and last night was the worst.
He woke up screaming in either pain or fear (although we had given him some Tylenol just an hour before) and could not be consoled. He was thrashing around, screaming and fighting us, and he even threw his milk which usually helps calm him when he's upset.
The only thing that helped was turning on the lights. But he was still too upset to be put down and we had to watch part of a VeggieTales and cuddle for awhile before he was calm enough to go back to bed.
Some of my friends say it sounds like a night terror. It's awfully hard to tell though with a 18-month-old who can't tell me what's wrong!
He's also been crabby during the day and not eating well so I thought he was teething.
I'm just wondering what could be going on!
