Hi all, I have a two year old son that we're having some issues with. During the day, he's got a wonderful personality. He's very smart, healthy, happy, and very lovable. But EVERYTIME he wakes up, no matter if we wake him up or he wakes up himself, he's extremely irritated, and spends the first half an hour, sometimes as long as the first hour, crying and kicking, arching his back, and is unconsolable. When we ask him what's the matter, his response is usually "I don't know". It doesn't matter if he's waking up from a nap, or from the nights sleep...it never fails. In April, we lost our daughter to SIDS, and he was the first one to find her. Since that day, he's been waking up at night again, and after going through this crying, screaming, kicking spell each night, the only way he'll go back to sleep is if I'm right next to him, literally holding onto him. I don't know if this is coming from a physical issue, (pain, nightmare, growing pains, etc) or if it's maybe trauma from finding his baby sister, or even the stress that he has picked up from my husband and I throughout the last nine months. Anyone ever have any issues like this? Any suggestions?? Thanks,
