Likely night terror: By definition, a kid will not awake easily during a night terror and will not remember having one. If you grab, hold, shake etc. You will likely scare them if they wake. Most NT are brief, lasting 5+/- min & the kid settles, awakes later refreshed with no recollection of the event. If a light touch does not waken the kid, it is not a nightmare.Better sleep can usually end the problem. ...Read more

If you get the "go ahead", I recommend tapering the PB over 1-2 weeks, while watching out for signs of infection or unusual behavior and being prepared to treat a fever quickly if one develops. ...Read more
