Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My almost 2 year old son screams bloody murder throughout the night.

He can take naps during the day just fine, but at night he screams. Not cries, but actually screams. Almost as if something is hurting him. Some nights he sleeps straight through. Others, he is up and down throughout the evening. And he is also sleeping til almost 11 am because he isn't getting the proper sleep needed at night. I've tried rocking him,singing to him, changing his position when he screams, I've given him different blankets and pillows to try to comfort him more. Should I take him to the doctor? Could it be something more than just not sleeping?
