How do you get them to sleep for 10 hours in a row, lol.

Guessing it was night terrors, any advice on how to help him sleep a good nights sleep?

My sons used to have night terrors for about 4 months. Then it just stopped. Found no way of getting him out of it other than cuddling him in and plenty of reassurance. I know its hard but just dont get too stressed about it as it will pass. Bless him :-)

Thank you, Um I kinda did, but was hoping for some parents with a bit more experience than me to help out, and not just state the obvious :oops:

I don't know what the proper answer is but we took ours into bed with us when they had the terrifying ones, when they were little.

my son had night terrors when he was about this age. i found it quite upsetting because there was nothing i was able to do. just go with the flow and they will pass. My sons is 18 now and i cant stop him sleeping lol .

they were worse if he got too hot

Avoid any so called sleep helpers like fenegan or medised. I personally think they just enduce a deeper sleep and so bring on more vivid dreams. Lotsa love and cuddles ;-)

PS lavender bath used to help relax mine.

Bathe him with some lavender in the water then give him ovaltine then on his pillow and top of his duvet put a few drops of lavender and he should sleep

That's probably the worse thing to do, They expect it all the time.

Just reassure and comfort them, They'll get other it and grow out of it.

I don't agree.... I am 32, and don't like the idea of going to sleep scared out of my wits...... I used to suffer from nightmares, and remember what it feels like to be sent back to bed with the old 'it'll be ok' line..... :?

I would rather cuddle mine back to sleep, they do grow out of it, and I can't remember the last time I cuddled my 13 year old to sleep! :thumbsup:

Not at all... ( not that I would mind admitting it if I did! ;-))

But there again, I know what you mean. :)

Bedtime CAN be a scary time... thankfully I grew out of it, but if my kids hadn't, I wouldn't be sending them packing back to bed! ;-)

Bedtime can be a scary time because you might miss a hot uk deal. :) But with regards to the little one, it's about reassurance and waking him up when he has a bad dream. If you don't have a baby monitor it might be worth using one, as you can usually hear a bad dream coming on. Good luck, I know kids can be scary in this state.

It's a great website I have in my bookmarks. It's specifically pregnancy, baby, toddler and child orientated with lots of helpful forums. It's always helped me out in a pickle and there's loads of friendly parents on there that know what they're talking about.

I've been extremely lucky (SO FAR?!) with three children (oldest is 4 years) and they all have really good bedtime routines and stay asleep. There was one point where my son woke in the night. I went in, gave him a cuddle and reassurance tucked him back in and walked out. Left him for 3 minutes went back in. This time no talking just cuddles. Walked out left him for 5 minutes. Went back in and tucked him back in with a kiss on the forehead. Walked out, left him for 10 minutes.

You should only ever leave them for a maximum of 15 minutes. It took my son a week and then he just stopped waking in the night. After about 3 days I only had to go in the once and he settled back down within 5 minutes. Around day 7 he would start crying, I'd leave it for 5 minutes, start to walk up the stairs and he'd stopped :thumbsup:

Worked for me. Hope it helps xxx

i`m 50 and i can still get night terrors - its always when i am too hot.

I used to get these when I was younger and about the only thing worse than them was when I would cry out for my Mother and she took ages in coming, keep an ear out or keep them close.

Do you have any other kids?

Little boy next door has started having problems with sleeping (always been fine before) and asking for his sister to sleep with him, they gave in and he is fine now - obviously wont be a long term thing, but just while he gets over the problem
