Only to find her trying to crawl up the wall (kind of like spiderman) and so I picked her up cause she was still crying and nursed her for a bit.

Then I laid her down in her bed and covered her over, but she sat up and started crying again, but also giggling intermittently. She wouldn't settle so I picked her up and took her onto the lounge with me and it hit me.......

she was actually still asleep. She was sleep crying/laughing/crawling up the wall!! It wasn't until her eyes started to almost roll back into her head and she wasn't responding to what I was saying, that I figured out what was happening.

The weirdest thing is that you would swear she was awake!! Pete & I both used to sleepwalk as kids, and wonder if anyone knows the cause?? Do you think it could be over-stimulation prior to going to bed?

Man, I'm freaked by that, it was so weird! huh.gif

Poor chicken!! Poor Mummy to find your little girl like that!!

My second youngest brother used to have night terrors where he'd dream spiders and monkeys were attacking him. One night the eldest brother even had to get a chair and pretend to fight off the monkeys before Mathew would go to sleep!

It's very scary! But hopefully won't continue! Hugs Alani!

I used to sleepwalk, but I grew out of it. I still have night terrors though, and I talk in my sleep. Dante has had night terrors, they are very scary but apparently nothing to worry about.
I think, creepy though it may be, she will be ok, just make sure there is nothing dangerous she can get up to in her sleep.

I was going to say that sounded like a Night Terror.

Scary for those who have to see it, the participant remembers nothing at all.

*hugs* I hope you have some calm nights from now on

I would definetly say that sounds like the terrors. It is really scary to see a child going through it and you are completly defenseless to stop it. Alot of children grow out of it quite quickly and then alot don't grow out of it until their about 16 or 17 (my brother for example) If it continues you should see a sleep specialist.

Big hugs because i know how scary it can be.

Definately sounds like Night Terrors to me. I *think* the most you can do is just nite when she does it and if theres a pattern, say if she was irritable or a new food.

Otherwise it may be just a kiddy thing, I used to sleep walk & occasionaly , similar to night terrors, wake up panicked, I wouldn't physically move I was more frozen too afraid to move. I could speak though and converse, sometime sit was making no sense to anyone. Mum would cool my forehead down with a face washer and try to re settle me.

I'd just do a little reading on it but I'm sure she's aok but very scary for Mummy as well!

Big Cuddle to both of you.

Both me and my older sister went through a faze were we sleep walked and as far as I know we both grew out of it. My niece sleep walks too she either just crawls into bed with mum or dad and goes right back to sleep or if your holding her she'll be all shy and quiet and then she'll just start crying as if she's just realised that she's awake. As long as she isn't hurting herself I don't think it's something you need to be stressing about.
