    waking up screaming

    after waking up (whether it is in the morning or after a nap) my nephews always cry and wail and scream....does anyone have the same experience? can any share with me what they have tried doing to prevent this from happening? i have no patience for this and just let them cry...which they do for 15mins and then eventually stop...but this method can't be used outside of the house....any help would be greatly appreciated!

    how old are they?

    when my 4.5 month old wakes up crying i usually take that as a cue that she's hungry.

    but sometimes she cries when she's been woken up before she's really ready to wake up, if you know what i mean. maybe because of some sudden loud noise, or maybe a bad dream? (although honestly, i'm not sure if babies her age dream at all...) and then i just hold her and try to soothe her and she becomes quiet fairly soon.

    i'm not sure if this helps!

    they are 3 and 4 years old! when they sleep over at grannies place, this doesn't happen (because they are in the same room as the grannies)....thanks though curiouscat2 for helping!

    my daughter always did the same thing. i think its just to let you know they are awake.
    i told my daughter not to scream, but to shout "mummy, im awake" so i would know, and could go and get her from her room.

    When my sister was younger, she would do this. My mum would walk in and say "I'll wait until you're happy and then I'll come back and get you ok?" - after that, when she woke up in the morning, she would yell out "MUMMY I'M HAPPY NOW!!!" - that became her new wake up call. So cute!! And much better than screaming too!!
