So the last 2 nights, my 10-mon old daughter will go for a nap around 4, sleep for about 20 min and wake up screaming bloody murder, like she's in pain. She screams and screams, stops for a minute if you hold her, but nothing works. Both nights this went on for about 45 min to an hour. We brought her to the family room and let her play and all she did was throw herself on the ground like she was having a tantrum.
Idk if this is an attention thing or if something's wrong, because all of a sudden, after about an hour, she was fine, happy, laughing, acting like nothing ever happened.
What do you think? Like I said, she is 10 months and I have never dealt with this before.
