    Sounds like night terrors x it's the way that toddlers/babies deal with 'scary' things that have happened during the day (even something like a dog barking at them can trigger night terrors) x x usually just comfort can help them x x

    Thank god its stopped! Thanks for all the advice, it did seem to be night terrors. I just kept taking him out of his cot and consoling him whilst he was still asleep and that was it! xxx
