<p>My ds who is 6 has been having nightmares periodically (a couple times a month) for the last year or so that involve different scenarios where I (mom) leave him places, let him get kidnapped, let him get lost, and watch him drown in quicksand and don't care.  He wakes up from these nightmares crying and sad and he talks openly about them.  I try not to be bothered personally about these dreams because I ask myself: how could my ds who was breatfed until he was 5, coslept until recently, was worn for the first year of his life, fear I will leave him or not love him or not want him.  So, I tell him and myself that because he loves me so much he is afraid of losing me, or afraid I might stop loving him or wanting him, and that is all normal fears and thus the nightmares.  But, I wonder too if I am doing something, or have done something, or if there is something wrong I should be paying attention to.  Anyone else have a child who has nightmares like that?  thanks! </p>
