Hi, poor baby. Could this be night terrors? Sounds like it. If so, she cant help it, I bet she is overtired when she goes to bed. Does she nap? What time does she go to bed? What is her *wind down* routine like?

If the child is left alone during the terror with you watching over them, the terror can last from one minute to ten. Then they fall in a deep sleep. Your little one is over tired. If you implemented a bedtime wind down routine, and an earlier bedtime of say 8pm, I bet she will stop this screaming. Good luck with things!!
|I would think it is nightmares or something but she also does this right before she falls asleep at night. She basically, anytime she is in a semi-awake and semi-asleep mode she screams bloody murder and we go through this whole ordeal.|
