For a while Nate was waking with Night Terrors and Rach suggested I use Meltonin and it has worked a treat for us, I use it on Nate for a few nights everytime he gets one (Which isnt often now) and it makes his sleeping patterns return to normal and he is totally fine. I would give it a go. x x x

It's strange, they seem to have stopped as abruptly as they started! He still needs a good nap in the day so I've been making sure he gets it as I read that sleep deprivation can be a cause and it seems to have worked!

Hopfully thats the end of them! x

That is fab sweetie, try to keep a wee note of food he eats during the day and nap times as well so you can look back if they happen again and see if there is anything that stands out like foods that may have brought it on or having a nap after a certain time. glad he is better now x x x

Thanks lovely, he's 3 and if he naps he always naps at same time, I don't put him down after a certain time as if he wakes too late he's a grouchy lil whingbag!
Good idea about the food though! x

We got Logan a dream catcher when he was starting to have scary dreams. Not as bad a night terrors though. He has a Little Einsteins book which talks about using the dream catcher to catch the scary dream and then go back into the dream to change the scary parts to funny things. It has worked really well and he only occasionally has them now but having the dream catcher above the bed is comforting for him.

My Bebe is the same hun, if she naps after 3pm she turn into a lil poo and just whines and whines for hours (she is just like me

I keep reminding myself that it can only get better, we have recently noticed that Yeast seems to upset Nate, it causes horrible, nasty, smelly poops and bothers his sleep patterns and behaviour so we are cutting that out as much as poss, which is hard because he LOVES bread, so now I am slowly converting him to pitta bread

Give the food chart a go, if nothing else you get to really see what he eats, I didnt realise just how much Nate ate! x x x

I used to have a dream catcher and I loved it, it's a really lovely idea too, Nate might spend most of his time playing with it rather than sleeping though
