No, not me this time. My kid has woken up multiple times in the past couple of nights screaming at the top of his tiny lungs for no obvious reason. The first time it happened, I just had to step out of the room for a minute because I was so overwhelmed in my sleepy state. Then I held him and rocked his limp little body and kissed his salty cheeks until his breathing slowed and he drifted off. I tucked him against my side and he slept peacefully for an hour but then daddy placed him back in his bed and the screaming picked back up again. This has happened several times only at night and I don't know what to do. I think this may lead to my own screaming if it continues tonight.
