One year old waking up with nightmares?
- February 5, 2013 at 7:14 am #20832
My one year old has been waking up SCREAMING lately. It’s happening once or twice a week. She occasionally wakes up crying, like all kids do, but in these particular instances she sounds way more frantic. She’s fine as soon as I run to comfort her. The only thing I can figure is that she must be having a nightmare… Has anyone dealt with this with a child so young? Not sure what else I can do besides go to her and comfort her until she falls asleep again.February 6, 2013 at 7:45 am #20834
Hi BrandNewMommy. There is a really useful e-family news article about children’s nightmares and night terrors. Some of the advice tends to skew a bit older for age of child, but you may be able still find some good insight here.

It very well could be nightmares. If that’s the case, going to your daughter and comforting her is really the best solution. If they’re happening really frequently, it might be something you want to bring up to your pediatrician.
Another thought…is your daughter teething? Sometimes that can cause discomfort and crying during the night.February 7, 2013 at 10:44 am #20836
I second the teething comment! It might be that. My son had awful discomfort at night time when he was going through the teething phase.
