  • I am going through the same thing and I am starting to wonder if it is night mare's or acid reflex. My son is 17 months old and has not really slept through the night since he was born. The thing is none of the children in my family had this problem. I know that my son does get acid reflex at times and his doctor told me I could give him 1/2 a teaspoon of mylanta so you may want to look into that.

  • My 23 month old has been waking up the last week SCREAMING like she is afraid and won't go back to sleep in her own bed. I have learned to either let her CIO or take her to the living room and watch tv for about 30 mintues till she is calmed down enough to go back to bed. Most nights it will work some nights I just have to hold her still till she goes to back to sleep.
