Question
I'M deeply concerned about my granddaughter crying in her sleep. She is 1year 4 months of age. What causes this , and should we be concerned. THANK YOU

Answer
Hi, Wanda,

So many possibilities.  Is she sick?  Has this been for a long time?  Is this from birth?  How do the parents put her to bed?  Does she fall asleep well and then wake up and can't get back to sleep?  All these pieces of information and probably more are needed for me to help you.

Thanks, Dave Olson, M.D.

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
