  • hi didn't want to read and run... my wee 1, nearly 3. went thro a spell of doing the same altho it was when she was well, not ill, but about 2ish.
    we just had to ride it out and i think she was having nightmares too. i also found that it seemed to happen when she was learning new things, words or just general things they work out. she is/ was lol. very easy going and the screaming and talking in her sleep was quite distressing. it is difficult esp. when your not getting any sleep. i don't have any advice tho. i'm sorry. i just did the things you've mentioned and she seemed to stop. i hope it doesn't go on for too much longer...
