Any LOs having nightmares or night terrors lately?

J is and it's heart breaking She remembers them the next day and she gets anxious around bedtime because she's so scared. The sound of wind outside bothers her and her imagination is wild. She has a nightlight in her room, so any shadows freak her out...but she insists on having the light on. She'll even turn her lamp so its even brighter! The other day she was telling us about her nightmare and how there was a giant lady and she heard foot steps and saw the shadow of the dragon's tail

Her new thing now, she has to close the door behind us when we go in any room...even if its the washroom, or our room...she has to close all the doors before she does anything.

I read it's common at this age...so I'm really hoping this is just a phase

Apparently nightmares they remember, but night terrors they have no recollection of.
Izzy has bad dreams sometimes, but not very often.

She went through a phase of night terrors last month when she was sick and it was FREAKY. Like they are awake but still sleeping...all you can do is wait it out. I remember trying to rock her in the chair and she crawled down from my lap and across the floor and up into her bed. It was crazy.... It's like mild sleep walking I guess. Apparently you're not supposed to intervene with night terrors.

My friend's daughter has them a lot and they can last for 40 mins with screaming, thrashing and moaning.

Trey has bad dreams, that he confuses with reality. Two nights ago, he apparently dreamed about bugs. It kept waking him up, and he'd sit up in bed and yell "BUGS! THERES BUGS ON THE WALL!" - seriously, panicked. he would not calm down until we turned on the lights to show him there were not bugs there. tim even tried "smashing" all of the bugs on the walls, but he was still very scared to sleep that night. He moved from his bed, to the couch, to my bed.

he has also told us about a robot that was spying on him, and that it scared him.
