I think my 2 yr old is having nightmares. She is waking up in the middle of the night hysterical. She gets aggressive with whoever comes in to check on her and it takes her a while to calm down. Also she seems scared to fall back to sleep when she does calm down. She ends up sleeping in bed with my hubby and I. We ask her if she is scared and she says yes but she is just 2 and doesnt have the vocabulary to tell us exactly whats wrong. Any suggestions on how to help her????Answer Question

Make sure she isn't doing or watching something during the day that may scare her. My DS was scared of cruella devile and the whale from pinocchio for a long time. Sometimes things that scare them are the things we least expect. Like the vacuum or the nail clippers. Simple things could carry into her dreams. After all that is how the subconscious deals with the things the conscious does not.
