  • Night terrors, from what I've heard, are worse for us than for them. I hate this, but you are supposed to just let it pass.

  • We went through a phase like this with my DD when she was about that age, too. I thought it was night terrors, but it turned out she was getting her molars.

    It was horrible, I would wake up in a panic because of her screams. I feel for you, and I hope it gets better soon!

  • Comfort them. There's nothing you can do about it.

  • My daughter had it at about that age. We shared a room at that point and she would sit straight up and scream at the top of her longs for about 20 minutes. I tried to comfort it but I noticed it only got worse so I started to just let her know I was there but then I would let her cry it out and she would go back to sleep. They say don't wake the child because when they scream like that they are still sleeping. My daughter grew out of it in just a few months. And coming from my own experience the only other thing I can say is.....Good luck.
