Nightmares or what??? PIOG

So for the last couple of nights my 13 month old has been waking up screaming like he's in pain and I've had to rock him back to sleep wrapped up in a blanket with him and his lovie... Normally he hates falling asleep in your arms he wants to be in bed, so this is odd. Is he in pain, or is he having nightmares? I wish I knew how to fix this for him since we are both losing so much sleep and I babysit a little girl from 7am to 5pm during the week at her house. So neither of us get much rest there either... I don't really know what kind of answers I'm looking for, I just don't know why he's not sleeping through the night anymore...

One of my sons had night terrors . . . for years.  He'd wake up screaming like he was being murdered.

Yeah, that's really restful.

I hope your son's sleep issues resolve quickly.  Maybe it's just a short, horrible phase?

 It could be what they call Night terrors they usually happen around his age up to about 2ish maybe longer..another thing it could be (im no dr so dont think im talking medically) growing pains cause i have heard that they actually hurt some kids or it could be teething he could be getting his molars already..my nephew is about that age and hes getting his 2 yr molars already.

 I think it is normal at that age to have night terrors. All of my kids did. It is because they are just learning about fear. He should out grow it. If it continues I would talk to his doctor about it.
