Some nights after I put Lilah to bed, she'll wake up screaming and crying - always about an hour to 90 min after she has gone down. She cries like she's terrified. Most times I need to go in and pick her up and rock her back to sleep to calm her down. Tonight she quieted down just as I got to her door.

Do you think babies can have bad dreams at this age? I don't know what she'd be dreaming about, nothing bad happens in her day besides falling down a bazillion times (usually onto her bum though). She's walking way more than crawling now which is why she falls so much!

Thank you Kiliki... for my adorable signature!

Kaeldra woke up screaming just the other night and I could not console her for a long time. It scared me! She finally settled down after I got her to nurse. I did some research and decided I'm pretty sure she was having a night terror. My husband had them growing up and it is thought to probably be hereditary. You're apparently not supposed to try to soothe a baby during a night terror, like you're not supposed to wake someone while they're sleep walking. No wonder she just seemed to cry harder. At the time, though, I didn't know what was going on. I guess I'll know for the future. From what I read, yes, babies this young can have nightmares and night terrors. It probably doesn't take much for a bad dream to form...heck, they could dream about running out of milk to drink or their mommy being missing, which I'm sure is very scary for a little baby!

Aw poor girls! I'd say if she takes to you comforting her then definitely keep doing it. She could also be just entering that deep sleep and then get out of sorts. Does that ever happen to you where you jerk awake and you're disoriented? Happens to me all the time. Hope she grows out of it

Ahh that sucks. Poor babies. I would imagine it's very disorienting for them to wake up, especially in the night when it's dark.

Seems like Kody just started doing the night terror thing too. Just the last 2 nights, he woke up crying hard and very hard to soothe back to sleep. Not sure what that is about. Poor dude.
