My sweet darling 2 yr old babygirl is having nightmares and I don't know why. It happens maybe 1 or 2 times a month. She is afraid of bugs, crickets, roaches, anything crawling outside (except ants, which is kinda weird). We monitor her t.v. time & shows so it's not from that. But she wakes up literally jumping out of her crib, she started screaming lastnight about monsters, my hubby ran into her room and found her standing in her bed pointing at the walls. I don't know what to do, I don't think it's from her allergy med b/c the nightmares aren't that frequent. Has anyone else been through this? She slept in our bed a few months back and woke up so scared she refused to let her dad touch her until I turned on all the lights and cleared all the pillows from the bed to show her no "bugs" were in the bed. Not sure if I need to speak with her pediatrician about these nightmares or what but I am beginning to get concerned.
