Twice Now within 3 months my son who is only 16 months has woke up screaming and crying. The wierd thing is he acts like he is not awake. He won't look at me or my husband he gets really stiff and throws his head back and just screams and cries.I tried to get him to look at me by calling his name and clapping my hands and nothing. It scared me really bad last night. The episode lasted about 5 min.then he went back to sleep like nothing happened and he is fine in the morning. Does anyone have any experience with anything like this? I plan on mentioning this to his dr. at his next appt. Everything I have read points to night terrors but everything says they don't start until around age 3 or 4, not this early. Help! I'm worried.
