our little guy Grayson is having night terrors this is night three of it taking place for hours. It usually is just the first few hours that he is asleep, but last night it was ALL night long.
I feel so sad for him. He wakes up and cries, screams, runs around the house like he doesn't know where he is or who we are, and he is shaking all over.
He never wants to go back to his room he always wants in our room... I don't want to make it a habit that every time this happens he gets to sleep with us. But I don't want him to be scared of his room. Last night I laid with him and held his hand until he fell back to sleep, but not even an hour later he was up again with night terrors. So at this point it was midnight and I needed sleep so I just let him sleep in our bed.
Any tips? Will he out grow this? What is the best method when he wakes up with these terrors? Should I just hold him and let him do what he wants to do? Do you think he is getting enough rest at night when this occurs? Do you think he remembers in the morning?
I asked the question on instagram last night after the second time of him waking up, but I thought I would share what is happening in our house and see if anyone has had similar stories or situation that they can offer advice to this tired mama.
Thanks in advance...
