  • Mine never did. I didn't know night terrors started that young, I thought they came later.

  • My daughter has had night terrors since she was very young. She never went limp though. She will fight with us. She will kick and scream and there's nothing we can do to wake her up. She talks as if she's awake, but she's not. After 30 minutes or so, she just snaps out of it and says she wants to go back to bed.
