last night and tonight my 2 1/2yr old dd has been having nightmares. she thrashes in bed, freaks when we try to pick her up and hold her. so we just sit there and watch her, praying. when she's done she'll let me hold her for a minute but she crawls back in the bed and falls right back to sleep. it's only for about 5 minutes or so, one time last night and one time tonight. then it's over.
any ideas on what could be causing this, anything i can do? my ds never had them...

sound like night terrors. not much to do for them then to wait them out. it's harder on the parents then the child and the child doesn't even remember them http://pediatrics.about.com/cs/sleep/a/night_terrors.htm
