Night terrors??

I'm worried about my son the past like 3 nights he's been alseep all night which is really good. But like every hour or so he'll start screaming. I'll check him and he's still fast asleep but even when I hold him and calm him down he just keeps doing it. I'm not really sure what to do and was wondering if any other mom's experienced this and what you did? I'm hesitant to take him to the pediatrician just because I don't really have a way to get there without making other people take time off and I wouldn't feel right if I did it and it was nothing.

My daughter is 2 in a couple of weeks and this started for us on Friday, I thought it may be a sleep change as there is one around this age but it has continued to happen every night since (multiple times a night) I wasn’t sure what was going on so I have been holding her and trying to calm her down thinking maybe she was unwell. I took her to the doctor today and she is physically well so they have said night terrors, I have been told not to hold her or try wake her up and to let it play it’s course. Im going to see how tonight plays out but I’m not looking forward to it as it’s the most horrendous thing I have seen. I’m exhausted and emotional and would love other mums to talk to about this ❤️ xxx

My daughter does not have them but my younger brother and I both have them we don’t much anymore we grew out of it but during times of stress it happens, so I’m sure he will grow out of it as well but I would definitely talk to your sons doctor about it!

My 2 year old has had them most of her life about 3/4 times a week. She usually sits up screaming, crying, thrashes herself around. Screaming get off me. Now that's the scary bit because there's nothing on her. Speaking to the health visitor they tell you not to wake them I completely agree I woke her once and she screamed for another 2 hours. Sleep deprived mumma 😴

I have nite terrors! Especially when it’s period time. It leaves me anxious for days😢

My two year old will just wake up in the middle of the night crying and screaming. A toy car or something to drink usually soothes him. Hate when it happens.
