Nightmares will affect 75% of children at least once during their childhood. If your little one is experiencing nightmares it can help to avoid anything scary or overstimulating, particularly right before bed, and avoid stressors during the day. Nightmares are more likely to occur when a child hasn’t had enough sleep, therefore it is important to ensure they are getting adequate sleep. After the nightmare, reassure your little one but avoid being too excessive. From around 3, some children’s imagination can run away with them, including fears surrounding the dark, in which use of a nightlight can be helpful.
