  • my son has done this on and off all his life. but since your 4 year old JUST started this behavior I would also be concerned and try to figure out what may have happened or be happening to trigger this behavior

  • my son talks in his sleep too. sometimes he cries and one time he was really scared and was yelling. nightmares begin around 3-4, the experts say, so its very likely she is having a nightmare. Talk to your pediatrician, but I think sleep talking is normal and everyone does it sometimes while some do it all the time.

  • Could be night terrors too. My son used to have them. He'd be unconsolable, with a glazed look in his eyes. And they say not to try to comfort them, which is SO hard.... Talk to your pediatrition too if you are really concerned... Good luck.
