My four year old daughter has never ever woken up happy in her life. Not even as a baby when others would just coo and play when waking up. She screams from the start, and takes anywhere from 10 minutes to 40 minutes to really get out of it. She has sensory issues (and sees an OT) and I think that's a lot of it. She's never been a "good sleeper" -- wakes up alot in the night and has trouble settling at night. The whole transition from sleep to wake is just really really hard. Things that have helped (slightly!) in the past have been a weighted blanket, remedies at night, and joint compressions throughout the day and before bed. Does your son suffer from any other types of sensory integration issues (textures, foods, etc)? If so, I'd suggest an OT eval. Good luck! I'm hoping like other posters that by 6 or 7 she will be done with it.
Ahhh. DS has sensory issues. We've been to two OT's. We didn't really see any improvement. Maybe, we need to revisit that again. Maybe, I need to work on his "sensory diet". I'm exhausted from all the wake ups and cooking for all of our family's food sensitivities. .
