DD is almost 20 months old and for the past 3 weeks, she has been waking up about every other night screaming. Literally, it will be dead silent and them screaming and calling out 'Mommy'. It's not her normal whingy whiney teething cry, it truly sounds like she's scared. So when I go in to check on her, she's standing in her crib, sometimes nearly jumping too, so I pick her up and she grasps onto me like there's no tomorrow. Gripping my neck and hanging on to me. She's usually breathing quick shallow breaths like shes afraid of something. HELP!!! I've googled this and think it may be night terrors, but when I hold her, she is comforted and wants me, unlike the night terror descriptions. Is it nightmares? night terrors? super duper severe teething?? (maybe more molars are coming in) Anyone dealt with this? I'm looking for ideas of what it might be, insight from those who've dealt with this, or things I can do to prevent it. It scares me! Also, her room is pitch dark, maybe shes old enough to be afraid of the dark and needs a night light??? IDK. Thanks for your help!! And I do have a Drs appt this week in regards to this.
