I know I shouldn't worry but I do.
My three year old (four in February) has always been a terrible sleeper. As in, would never sleep on his own from the moment he came home from the hospital. I had to carry him forever.
He is now very verbal and is still a horrible sleeper. He wakes up a couple times a night. He still sleeps with us b/c it is the only way I can get any rest.
Lately, I have realized that what seems to be waking him up are his dreams. He talks in his sleep and seems to be talking about his dreams. About a quarter of the time they seems to be nightmares. Not horrible, just waking up crying.
The reason I am worried about this (in addition to the still not sleeping part...which is no small issue...yawn!) is that we have a family history. My other son has Autism and my sister has Schizophrenia.
Could this be an early warning sign? I know I should worry but I do and I am.
Any suggestions on how to get him to sleep better through these?
