Your pediatrician : can tell you if he's healthy so you can establish consistent nap & bedtimes. In low light, read, rock, feed, wipe out his mouth with a soft cloth after the last feed. Then put him on his back in his own crib in his own room, drowsy but awake, without pacifier or bottle to learn to self-calm for sleep. Sadly, you can't do it for him. Calmly repeat if he cries for more than 10 minutes. ...Read more

Sleep disturbance: Children's brains remain very active during their sleep cycles and it is theorized that when in dreams they unaware it's a dream - more real to them. Many children can have variations of these night time awakenings and often appear awake when they are not. Stressful for the adult but most children wake up refreshed. Try putting white noise machine in room to help soothe her through the night. http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/night-terrors?print=true ...Read more

Why does my husband talk in his sleep and fight an invisible enemy?

Why does my husband talk in his sleep and fight an invisible enemy?

Don't ask why: Each of us has idiosyncratic behaviors for which we never find explanations. Don't try to medicalize, analyze, or cure it. Probably there's not any reason to address it unless it also causes him substantial distress or makes sleeping together impossible. If so, a psychiatry consult may be in order. But I suspect common sense is best -- simply love him and accept his love. ...Read more
