  • My son does this, at 2yrs old.
    Sometimes he's partly awake, sometimes not.

    He screams and cries, and throws himself around wildly.
    We had an episode this evening, actually. Even after he was
    fully awake, he wouldn't/couldn't calm down.

    He also wouldn't have anything to do with Dh, which is def
    not the norm. He's now asleep in Dh's arms, in the big chair.
    I wish I had an answer for you, and for me, too. I know it's rough.

  • sounds like night terrors. my son did this. it is more traumatic for the parent then for the kids. it's like sleepwalking. they never remember all you can do is wait it out. my hubby and I use to take turns till he stopped having them. some night we would just let my son sleep with us.
