My DD has gone from nightmares, to waking up screaming in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issues and about how long they have lasted...I'm so over it at this point.

how old is she? maybe it is her adnoise. especially, if she is over 3 years old. I know that this can make them hear weird noises when they lay down. they don't understand it and it scares them.. if it just seems to be that she is going through an unknown phase try a favorite toy or stuffed animal in the crib.
hang in there.

some nights are better than others, i think that was just a rough week. She has a dream lite, puppet pet, even Thomas the train, but when she wakes up from nightmares, none of them matter. We've regressed to allowing her back in the bed just so that we'll be well rested for work, I know it's not the right thing to do, but it works.

I agree with you. if you need to sleep, you do what you have to do for the peace and quiet. I am glad to hear it is not every night. maybe it all will pass. good luck.
