Night Terrors, AKA Confusional Arrousal

Well Julian has had a few of these episodes. They are really scary for me as a parent, because there is nothing I can do to help Julian. Tonight, he was screaming and crying. I went into his room to comfort him, and he freaked out and was kicking! It's weird because he's not really awake. And he was screaming and crying for "Mommy"

So Barry googled night terrors. He stumbled upon this website and it was very interesting
Dr Greene

Basically he says that night terrors may or may not be related to 'night training' regarding the potty...hmm sound familiar? So we tried his advice and put J on the potty right after his terror and guess who peeped? Yep. I think this Dr. Greene is definitely on to something!
