I'm wondering if anyone can help me. DC has had 3 nights in the past week where she wakes super frequently and is in the oddest state of consciousness. In many ways she appears "normal" and can have a conversation but then will slip in things like, "Ok, I just need to get the cupcakes," and other very odd things as if she's talking from a dream. When I say, "What cupcakes?" she seems super startled for a second and then cries, seems "awake" for a second and then will slip back into the dream comments.
She has done something (I guess) related in the past where she wakes up and is TOTALLY not awake and is kind of babbling nonsensically but this is different and more worrying. First because it's so strange but also because it's happening many times throughout the night and also because no matter what I do (turn on the light, go into another room, have a drink of water) she doesn't snap out of it. I mean for a second she seems to and can talk to me but then she'll say something strange again.
My DH talked to her tonight and is worried. I wasn't super worried until I came in for the next waking and am starting to worry as well.
Has anyone experienced something like this? Do you know what type of problem this is so I can start to research it? WWYD in this situation?
