Any tips on how to get my 16 month old son to sleep through the night? He wakes up every three hours and seems as though he is having bad dreams

Thank you, very good idea about the lamp instead of the night light. I think the nightlight is more for me when I need to change his diaper. Thank you I will give that a try!

I went through the same thing with my son. He was having night terrors and would wake up shrieking and crying to the point it would take me and my mother at least an hour to calm him down.
Does he have a nightlight? They can throw some pretty creepy shadows. I have a small reading lamp with a 7.5 watt bulb in my son's room (he's 4) which brightens the room enough that the shadows are "minimal," but is dim enough that he can sleep comfortably.
The only thing I did was be there for him- lots of cuddles and comfort. I hope he is able to sleep nightmare free soon.
