Hi Doc
My son is 20 months old, he sleeps through some nights and the others he tosses and turns, and sometimes cries like he is having a bad dream. This has been happening lots lately, he is dewormed. I have no idea what to do anymore because once he does that, i cant sleep. Thank only happens between 12:00 and 03:00, after that he sleeps peacefully. Please advice
thank you in advance

This is a very common problem. Your son is probably having night terrors. This is usually a passing stage. When he becomes restless it is best to go to him and comfort him. As soon as he settles leave his room.
