My 10 month old baby screams for hours in her sleep?
Question: What could this be? She is not awake, so I don't believe it is a sleep/night terror
Heidi's Answer: Hi Kyle-Ann, During a night terror a child is actually not really awake so her not being awake does not rule out a night terror. On the other hand, night terrors do not last for hours on end.
Can you describe what happens in a bit more detail please (just post a comment below):
When does the screaming start (ie how long after going to sleep)? Describe the screaming. Does she wake completely at the end of the screaming, or goes back to sleep normally? How does she sleep at naps during the day?
Any further info you can also provide will help me get a better idea of what is going on.
