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 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 son is 19 months and he has had them since he was 3 months old, which is super unusual. The doctor's kept telling me that it affects me more than him because he doesn't remember. He used to have them weekly. Now, he has them once a month if that and he had more at our old house. I couldn't comfort him because he would scream more and his body goes limp. Hopefully yours and mine grows out of it. Hang in there momma

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 😴

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.
