2 Month Old Babies Cry, Scream And Breathe Fast While Sleeping At Night?
Hello dokAnak since I was 2 months old until now I am 8 months old always during sleep experience like night terror .. symptoms of rapid breathing, crying, screaming, and do not want to calm down .. often wake up immediately when crying but the eyes are closed. Usually I always feed and then he falls asleep again. But in one night can be several times like that. When I was pregnant I often experienced stress because of my husband’s treatment. I once had thoughts of suicide. What happened to my child was the influence of him while he was still in the womb. What because of me? Until now I have not been able to work because at night he did not. I would sleep and could not sleep well if he did not wake up when he woke up or I was not by his side.
Hello Nurul, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Night terror is a sleep disorder that can occur to everyone, especially for babies, this condition is very rare and quite difficult to distinguish before the age of the child reaches 18 months because in children less than that age the symptoms caused are still unclear. However, if it occurs, this condition is generally caused by excessive stimulation in your child because in infants, the nervous system is not functioning properly, but can also be caused by a history of the same condition in the family.
If indeed your child often experiences these complaints, you should consult the complaint further to a psychiatrist or to a pediatrician to evaluate whether your child really has night terror or other conditions such as nightmare or a response to conditions that are uncomfortable for him.
Complaints about your child are not yet caused by your condition during pregnancy, but can also not be related so it needs further consultation with a doctor.
In the meantime, there are a number of things you can try to do such as:
Create a comfortable sleeping environment for your child every night, such as paying attention to food / breastfeeding needs, room temperature, the child's body cleanliness, and also the bed and pillow that is used to make sure your child gets enough sleep every day. safe when complaints occur to avoid injury to your child Hope it helps.
