Night terrors are POSSIBLE in infants, though it is more common in toddlers/small children.  Most people with night terrors aren’t aware of them AT ALL.  All I can think of.

A infant in our center last year did this and would wake up screaming and panting for breath. At first we thought she was just getting spooked by noise but it ended up being problems with her adnoids and tonsils. It was affecting her breathing in her sleep and she’d wake up screaming because of being short of breath. Super Scary but she had her adnoids out over the summer and everything is fixed now. May be something to atleast keep an eye out for.

Ceci is getting startled when she wakes up these days.  We just moved, so I feel like she wakes up not knowing where she is and totally freaks out.  We’ve just been doing a lot of comforting and reassuring and it seems to be getting better.

Fingers crossed for you!  Getting her checked out isn’t a bad idea.

Is it happening with every sleep or just at certain times?

I am by no means a physician but I would look into getting a heart monitor.  SIDS runs in my family, my dad’s first daughter passed away from it and my dad from then on used a heart monitor on my younger sister and me.  He told me that his first daughter only had a very slight cold the day before she passed.  It may not be related but for peace of mind on my part, I couldn’t NOT say something.

Caitie has woken up screaming before.  She’s kinda outgrown it now, but she used to just WAIL.  I thought it was gas.  Now she wakes up fine, although she does have times where if we put her down even for a millisecond she’ll scream like we just pinched her or something.  Makes me feel bad!

Yuuki has done that before, but it only happened for about two days, and then it stopped completely. I honestly think she got spooked or realized that she was alone (we went through a period of time where she would only sleep in our room during the day). After picking her up and holding her for a bit, she was fine.

She’s also doing this today a bit too, but it’s hard to calm her with anything but a bottle or pacifier. She also just had her vaccinations today, so she’s probably just irritable.

Mrs. Spring- I just wanted to reassure you that it most likely isn’t anything organic/physiological (especially since the rest of the time she’s so normal!), but since it is happening so frequently and unpredictably, the visit on Friday should give you some good peace of mind! 

Hugs to Addie and her momma.
