Baby's nightmares at 4 months

For several nights, your 4-month-old baby has been waking you up during the night and screaming when you hold him? What if it's night terrors?

  • Different from the nightmares that appear around the age of one, night terrors are accompanied by motor restlessness. Your baby sweats and his heart beats faster.
  • The best thing to do is to let it go. If you hold your baby, he or she may not recognize you and may scream more.
  • If it's too painful and the night terrors are frequent, you can ask your pediatrician for advice and a homeopathic treatment.
