Toddler Always Wakes Up Screeaamiinnng
14 mo twins...
One wakes up every 45-50 minutes during nap (4 out of 5 days), screams bloody murder for 5 minutes, rolls around, then falls back asleep. One nap per day, usually ends up sleeping 2 1/2 hours. I learned a while ago that if I don't do anything, he will just go back to sleep. I just think it's wierd. Do you think he's laying on an arm, and it goes to sleep? Just wondering if that's what wakes him..the tingling of it "reawakening".
Twin #2, does the same thing, but not as often. But every day, after 1 1/2-2 hours, he wakes up for good and screams BLOODY MURDER! He NEVER plays in his bed when he wakes up, cooing and talking like most toddlers do. He clearly doesn't sleep long enough, because he sleeps a little over 10 hours at night, and only has one nap. He's just downright cranky sometimes. BTW, I never get him up because I would have no where to go with him. The rest of the house is still sleeping, and it would nightmare.
Both kids are happy to go to bed, I get hugs and we sing an inane "nighty night" song, and they settle down happy. It's the waking that has me scratching my head.
They are in seperate rooms in seperate parts of the house because they used to wake each other up, so even if one slept well, the other one had no chance.
Any theories or ideas out there?
