  • I have read a lot of posts about nightscares which are nightmares. People say their LO wake up crying hysterically as if they've seen a ghost. Some say their LO did it at about the same time every night and they would wake them up before it would happen. Weird isn't it? Hope it was helpful.

  • I've been wondering the same thing, my 6 month old does that every once in a while, just out of nowhere she wakes up screaming like something scares her, my husband thinks it's the ghost shows I watch, but my daughter doesn't see the shows, so I fail to understand his logic on that one, still, he personally thinks that kids can have nightmares at that age, but I haven't asked a dr about it yet.
