Nightmares


Emilia has been suffering from nightmares. They're not night terrors because she is awake, but that would be the best way to describe what she's having. She really fears going to sleep. She wakes up several times through out the night crying and runs through the house in the dark screaming for mom or dad at the top of her lungs. It scared me the first night.

I don't know what caused her to be so afraid but it got to the point that we converted her toddler bed back to a crib and had to put the gate up so she would not hurt herself while meandering in the dark. That was a long night...

Things have improved the last two nights. She still wakes up and calls for us, but at least she stays in her room and is no longer screaming.

Hopefully we get through this phase pretty quickly.

That is weird. None of my girls are great sleepers. I hear them cry out a few times a night, but they usually don't get up. Lorelai does come in occasionally with a nightmare, but she usually isn't that upset. I hope she starts feeling better soon.

Oh Romy, that sounds awful. I have no advice but I hope things get better quickly!
