Could it be possible my daughter is having nightmares or even night terrors? We don't think she's currently teething nor does she have any kind of sickness. But, she'll often wake up several times throughout the night crying. Sometimes screaming. And she sounds scared.
My mom was told by a friend that her (friend's) grandson would do the same thing and when he had a large enough vocabulary he would tell his comforting mother, "I scary."
What do you think?
