yet another milestone

Noah just woke up screaming at the top of his lungs. I ran in there, picked him up, held him close, and whispered "Mama's here, it's okay." over and over. It took some time, but when he finally stopped crying (and sobbing pitifully), I settled him down and nursed him back to sleep. The whole episode took less than ten minutes. He's sleeping peacefully now - I'm still shaking in my boots.

Aw, those night wakings with the screaming are never fun. I am glad you were able to settle him back down so quickly. I hope you can settle down now too!

Z used to do that every couple of months too, only he'd scream for an hour. He quit by the time he was a year old.

Night terrors are teh suxxor.

Silver had them for quite a while. Now she is the best sleeper EVAR, loves to nap, etc. Of course, she's seventeen...;)
