Why Is My Toddler Crying In Her Sleep
It depends.: If your child isn't waking up during these episodes, he may be having night terrors. If so, the best things to do are to ensure there is nothing in his bed he can get hurt on, and keep him on a consistent sleep schedule. If he has a habit of waking and then crying, as long as he has no medical cause for this, it's best to see if he can put himself back to sleep. His doctor can advise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was cleaning my toddler's ear when she started crying and saying it hurts.. That night when she's already sleeping i checked her ear and saw blood?
Likely scraped wall: The ear wax is created in the outer half of the canal and will fall out if left alone. Whatever you can scoop out with your fingernail under direct vision is fine to move. Otherwise, leave the ear alone. Any swab or q-tip placed in the canal can & will scrape the wall & make it bleed occasionally. It will also push the wax in so far it will never pack the ear drum.A visit can confirm the injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It : It sounds as though you've done everything you can do and it's time for your child to be re-evaluated by a physician for her illness. Even though fever is most commonly caused by infections which are not serious, a fever that continues with an unknown source for longer than 4 or 5 days is concerning and needs to be looked into further for a cause. Sometimes as the illness progresses, signs and symptoms that weren't there before start to appear and can help doctors figure out what is going on and what treatments may be helpful. Another reason to take your child back in for evaluation is that she is not eating or drinking and may be dehydrated. In general, other "red flag" reasons to call your doctor or go to the er when your child has a fever are: your child is under 2 months old, uncontrolable fever, worsening or new symptoms, seizure, purple rash, change in consciousness, difficulty or rapid breathing, persistent headache, vomiting, or any other serious concerns you may have.

My 4yr old has been having night terrors. If i hear her screaming / crying in her sleep should I wake her up when this is happening ?
Observe: The kids with night terrors are often sleep deficient and enter deep sleep state like sleep walkers.Kids with nightmares will waken immediately to light touch, night terrors do not and you should let it run its course. Most last 5-10 min.If you shake to wake it frightens them. Nt are not remembered. A change in sleep routine that permits as little as 15 min more sleep/night will often end these. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Discomfort/Fear: We all cry for similar reasons: fear, discomfort, and hunger. If you know your baby's tummy is full, the most common reasons are teeth or bad dreams (depending on their age). What can you do about bad dreams? Not much. But, teething can be helped with some Ibuprofen before bedtime. I also would check your baby's diaper, clothes, and bed to make sure that there is nothing causing them discomfort. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Babies who are put : In their own cribs drowsy, but awake, from birth learn to self-calm to fall asleep between 1-4 months & to fall back asleep if they night wake. Establish a consistent bedtime & routine, including reading & cleaning the gums or teeth. At/after 5-6 months it's harder for them to settle, but they do after a few nights of fussing, if parents consistently allow them to learn to self-calm. ...Read more

I have been crying in my sleep lately. What diagnoses could this symptom be attributed to and what can I do to help ease or stop it?
Its a release!: Crying , in my opinion is a physiological reaction to an emotional state, such as the emotional part of pain, happiness, sadness, etc. Crying while asleep is most likely a reaction to an emotional state while you are asleep. Some of my patients reported sleep crying during periods of emotional turmoil. Most crying is a release, a solution, and it will stop.. If it persists, you might need help. ...Read more
A mouse was killed in a trap in my home i heard it and now i can't stop crying. I can't sleep cause all i hear is the mouse. Why am i like this?
Perhaps it is : because you care. It is ok to care about God's creatures. However, your depression may be key in the intensity of the impact it is having on you. See that you take celexa (citalopram). It isn't clear if you are receiving any talking treatment. I would encourage you to get into some therapy to help with both your depression and your anxiety disorder. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The question is: whether it's medical or behavioral, if he is 5- 6 mos. or older or overstimulation if < 5 mos. Have a consistent bedtime & routine; in low light, read, rock, feed, brush his teeth or wipe out his mouth. Put him in his crib in his own room drowsy, but awake, without bottle or pacifier, to self-calm to sleep. Have his pediatrician do a check-up.
