Health Tip: Minimize Nightmares

Help foster sweet dreams

(HealthDay News) -- While parents can't prevent nightmares altogether, they can take steps to help foster sweet dreams.

The Nemours Foundation offers these suggestions:

  • Keep a consistent bedtime and waking schedule.
  • Implement a calm, quiet, relaxing and consistent bedtime routine -- perhaps including a bath, book and some cuddle time.
  • Make sure your child's bed is comfortable and cozy. Allow a favorite stuffed animal or blanket in bed.
  • Don't let your child watch any frightening television shows before bed.
  • Explain to your child that nightmares are only dreams, and that he or she can't be hurt during a nightmare.
