Questions from Real Parents

My son keeps waking up with night terrors. He is still sleeping but is screaming in his bed, yelling “no, no, no” or talking in his sleep about something that happened earlier in the day. What can I do?

My 9 month old was sleeping 11-12 hours through the night, but now she is waking 3-4x a night and is talking/crying/screaming. It is taking her 1-2 hours to fall back asleep, and it used to take a maximum of 45 minutes. I am falling back into bad habits and nursing to sleep. How can I get her back to sleeping through the night?

My baby is now 5 weeks old and won’t sleep during the day. Starting this week he seems to be very awake during the day and can quietly sit in a swing for an hour. He won’t fall asleep in the car seat or stroller. He also cluster feeds from 7 to 10pm now, which makes me even crazier. Is this normal for newborn’s sleeping or is it a growth spurt? How do I make him sleep during the day?

How can I help my 4 month old get to sleep for her naps? The past few days my 4 month old is desperate to fall asleep for naps and can't seem to. She is on a 3 nap a day schedule which was working well. Now she fusses, cries, rubs her eyes and burrows her face into my shoulder. I rock her, walk, swing her and it's not helping her get to sleep. What can I do?
