Liam had really bad night terrors for a while, sometimes up to 5 per night. Sometimes he'd cry inconsolably for a half hour or more. Or he'd get out of bed and stomp around. The first time he had one he was at a hotel and actually left the room and went outside in his sleep. Super scary, that...

It turned out that his night terrors were caused by anemia. The theory is that low iron can cause restless leg syndrome, and restless leg syndrome can trigger night terrors. As soon as we started supplementing him with iron his night terrors went away.

So if Rosie's night terrors get worse or more frequent, I'd suggest getting her iron checked, just in case there's an easy solution.
