What’s important for parents to distinguish is if their child is experiencing a night waking from partial rousing from Stage IV sleep or if the waking is a result of a sleep association i.e. the child hasn’t learned how to fall asleep on his/her own. Typically if a child needs a parent to rock them, pat them, feed or provide some sort of assistance in order to fall asleep when they first go to bed, the child will quite predicable starting waking some time after midnight requesting assisting to fall back asleep. If no assistance is provided the child can become very distraught and will demand assistance until it’s provided. This is a sleep association which means that the child has not learned to fall asleep on his/her own and until they learn how to fall asleep independently when the first go to bed, they’ll continue to wake at night.

Night terrors, dreams, or sleep waking are quite different and usually occur about 2-3 hours after a child goes to sleep. These occur because the first several hours of sleep the body enters a Stage IV sleep phase or the deepest level of sleep. The child has partial rousing but not completely from a deep stage four and may move about, call out- sometimes frightfully. If it is a true night terror a child will not communicate directly with the parents, have no awareness of the parent and not be able to answer questions. A sleep association is when the child is aware and often, if they can speak, will make requests for pacifier, bottle or some other assistance. During a night terror a child will act out wildly and not respond to their parents. The child is not aware of what is going on and will not have any memory of the incident. It’s more frightening for the parent. Again, under the age of six most of the following sleep patterns are quite normal and nothing to be alarmed by. There is no harm to the child, though it may be frightening for the parent: • Brief body movements, some eye opening and mumbling • Sleep talking • Calmly sitting up, looking around blankly and lying back down • Calm sleepwalking, semi-purposely either looking for something or going to the bathroom • Agitated sleepwalking: confused, jumpy & upset and the child may appear to be trying to leave • Confusional arousal: confused child yelling screaming, thrashing, moaning kicking. This can be prolonged and the child may look possess • Sleep Terror: screaming with the appearance of fear or panic. Causes The #1 Social Shopping Site

While most of these patterns in child under age 6 are normal, there are certain situations that will make them more likely to occur. • Developmental stages • Being overtired or behind on sleep • Having a job to do: For example: If a parent stays in the room with the child until the child falls asleep the child will try to wake to make sure the parent hasn’t left. This happens more with children who have a sleep association • External Sensory Stimulations such as lights, noises or parent touching or
