  • Night terrors or plain ol bad dreams. We all have them, but most times kids don't remember them.

  • I think it's night terrors, my oldest daughter had them starting around two years old. She still has them occasionally and she's 11 almost 12. She Aldo sleep walks, idk what causes them though.

  • my 3 year old does too. I asked her pediatrician & he said it's normal & like sleepwalking she doesn't remember doing it. He said it doesn't harm her, but it sure makes me sad.

  • My 3yo dd does it too, its awful and i usually end up waking her up and then she just can't stop crying but she doesn't know why and its really hard to get her to stop :( its frustrating and scary and she usually ends up waking up her baby brother too :P my oldest daughter ( 7yo now) used to do it when she was younger and has outgrown it so i guess u just have to live with it until they outgrow it :(
