My five year old SD has been waking up in the middle of the night complaining of spiders at our house and her mom's that she's itchy and that they are crawling on her. I have heard it could be related to sexual development. Has anyone had a similar experience? Is there anything we can do to help her sleep through the night. It's been happening for weeks now. I've heard melatonin can help. Any suggestions or similar experiences?Answer Question
Never heard of that one. Has something new happened, new school, bed or new friend or losing an old friend. My daughter gets new fears when there is a change in her life. I would try spraying "bug spray" in her room for her before bed. Maybe something lavender scented to help her relax. We had to put a red light (her favorite color and easy to sleep with) on in my daughters bedroom the last time my hubby was gone, it helped her with her fear of the dark.
