Son sleeping bad because of nightmares
Son sleeping bad because of nightmaresMy son of 3 years will not go to bed because he has nightmares. Once he has, he says are dangerous animals to bed. How he does while I do not know. I try to explain to him that there are no dangerous animals. I also try to distract him with fun things. I am very long time to get him to sleep. Then he woke in the night and takes another long before he sleeps. You have to stay with him until he falls asleep again, but it’s so tiring for us. I understand that sometimes works melatonin for sleep, but not sleep. It is therefore pointless to try I guess. Do you maybe have an idea what can I could try?
Apparently there is your son talk of fears that keep him awake at night and / or his bad dreams delivery. To solve the problem, have medicines indeed pointless. In any case it is important to give him as much as possible during the day feel safe. It may be that this is a temporary problem. But it can also cause a persistent existence.
