Hello, good evening Ms. Dian ...
What your child experiences is generally a reasonable condition, this condition is called Confusional Arousals. This condition occurs when a person wakes up when he is in the sleep phase in a slow wave (or also called the NREM / Non-Rapid Eye Movement phase). NREM phase is more common in children than in adults, this then makes the condition of confusion / confusion when I wake up more often experienced in children (especially in toddlers and early school children). Usually the child becomes confused, crying, struggling in bed, and difficult to calm. This condition can last even more than an hour. After going through a daze / confusion episode, children generally go back to sleep, or sometimes wake up briefly and then get sleepy again.
In almost all cases, this condition does not require any treatment, because this condition rarely indicates a serious illness or psychological problem. This condition will disappear with age. Some suggestions we can give to help manage this complaint include:
make it a habit for the child to sleep on time to make sure the child is getting adequate sleep (adequate amount of hours of sleep, avoiding noisy sleep atmosphere, etc.) make sure that your child's bed is safe, ie avoiding items that can harm your child (such as objects sharp, things that fall or break easily, etc.) avoid waking your child if there is no compelling reason
If this complaint persists and your child's age is more than 6 years, then we recommend that you consult your child to the pediatrician to ensure there is no disease that underlies your child's complaint huh ..
That's all, hope that helps, ma'am ... :)
