hi again! has he been an overactive child and loves to jump around? does he sleep in the afternoon? does he watch too much of cartoons or serials? please note down his activity level. try this before sleeping: wash his hands and legs with lukewarm water and after drying ,give a body massage with lukewarm oil( whichever suits him). take him in your lap cajole him, kiss him ,hug him , then cover him with a sheet/ blanket, dim the lights and make him sleep. lie down by his side, narrate a nice story . please make sure he sleeps by 8/9 p. m . at night and doesn't overexert himself during day time. this shall help u Bhavna!

Hi shikha :).. I am good.. this didn happened for first time.. But i am not worried that much.. He s a chatter box n super energetic... So for this toddler with energy if tornado... Day time is not at all enough to express what all goes in his mind ;) He sleeps most of the times after sleep talking... i do this whisper and comforting talk back thing... :bas baad mein mujhe neend nahi aa pati theek se... But koi ni this phase too shall pass.

hi Bhavna! sleep talking occuring in children is a common problem and it usually runs in families so u need to trace from whose side the child has acquired this. on a serious note it's not much of a cause of concern. having said that u need to watch out if there is any particular thing child talks about in sleep. are there any anxieties in child's mind related to any particular recent change? also please ensure the child gets good sleep , in her own bed for minimum of 8 hours. if she does sleeptalking make her sleep again by talking in gentle voice. u can make her unwind before sleep by practicing good sleep hygiene such as getting fresh, changing to night wear, dim lights, minimum of distractions around . in case u feel it's affecting the child as well as your sleep please consult your doc. and hope this helps!
