    Night Terrors

    Ok, so our little one, after spending the last 9 months blissfully sleeping from 7pm till around 7am, has decided to go through a stage of night terrors, where he cries in his sleep.

    Anyone else's little one had these? Any tips on helping avoid them?

    Not really too hard done by, given he's courteous enough to have them around 10pm most evenings this week, but worried about the poor lil fella.

    This is bunny and friends. He is fed up waiting for everyone to help him out, and decided to help himself instead!

    Yup, ours both went through stages on and off. Just used to wake up and be inconsolable for a while then settle back down and not even remember it the next day (so they're obviously a lot older than yours)

    Now if they're bad and go on for a long time get your health visitor involved. And of course it won't hurt to contact them anyway just to put your mind at ease.

    Not much you can do as far as I'm aware, stick to a bedtime routine etc but i think it's just something their developing brains go through.

    We've been quite lucky in that our little one has only had the odd nightmare, but as per Rob_B, after consoling for a while, goes back to sleep and doesn't remember in the morning. Saying that, the other night he dreamed his arm had fallen off, but this wasn't a bad dream, apparently.

    When they start to get an active imagination and the ability to talk, the dream stories become very 'interesting'...
