Last night we experienced something I NEVER want to experience again! It was horrid and scary.
We experienced our very first Night Terror. We’ve never been through one before with J and K, but last night A had one.
She woke around 2am screaming for no reason. She was in our bed but she sat bolt upright screaming “Mum”. I tried to comfort her but couldn’t. P tried to console her but couldn’t. It was as if she couldn’t see or hear us. For 30 minutes she screamed. It scared P so much that he was considering taking her down to A&E.
Then she just stopped screaming. As quickly as it had started she stopped. She kept pointing to something in the doorway and clapping. After another 30 minutes of chattering to whatever she could see (and she got off the bed for a quick investigation), she returned and went back to sleep.
She slept until gone 9am this morning and seems as right as rain. P and I however are shattered!
I never want to experience a night terror again!
