Restless sleep of the child

Restless sleep of the child

Question:

- I have a girl of 3 years and 2 months. From time to time during sleep, at lunch or even at night, the child screams through sleep, struggles, and when I try to calm her, she struggles and screams louder. This happens about 1 year, 1 year and a half. I mention that this does not happen daily and I have always tried to calm it down, it will only end. The screams that start in the middle of the night have put me in thoughts and I don't know what I can do to calm my baby's sleep. Please give me a piece of advice. What should I do to see that my baby is sleeping peacefully at night? In the hope that you will answer me, thank you in advance. Monica Bratu

Answer:

Because you say this does not happen every night, a first step you can take in addressing such a problem is to remind yourself of the times of day when such manifestations of the little girl occur. Look at what happened that day, see if there was anything that could be related to the little girl's restless sleep and that would be repeated in other days.

Provide a safe atmosphere in the girl's room, using either a wake-up lamp at night, or bringing her a small "keeper" in the form of a favorite toy, plush animal. Use in your attempts to reassure the little one not only encouragement, but also stories with characters who go through similar situations and successfully complete.

Dreams that the baby has during restless sleep should be considered, so as much as possible find out what he dreamed, what are the fears related to those dreams.
It does not appear from your writings whether your little girl sleeps alone or with you, a very important thing. In case she sleeps alone the restless sleep or she may have the unconscious role of bringing you near her. The crying thus entails your separation and your intervention, your intervention to calm her, and she may spend the rest of the night with her. In this case even if your little girl wakes up and cries during the night do not give in to his insistence, quiet her but do not stay overnight with her.
Gradually it will be accommodated with this separation from the mother during the night. Make sure everything is okay and if you feel the need to sleep with your favorite toy, thus becoming your substitute at night.
Essentially sleep disorders in the little ones are a way of expressing their unfulfilled desires, such as the presence of the mother or father close to him, the need for protection, security and love.
Good luck!
