my 3 year old son was assaulted by our babysitter just over 2 months ago, he suffered 2nd &3rd degree burns to over 30% of his tiny body, THANKFULLY he is healing amazingly and he will not require surgery, He hasnt had many emotional issues since it all happened but the ones he has shown we have been dealing with, over the past few nights Iv noticed he has not been sleeping . He paces his bedroom in silence all night long, ( i have a video baby monitor). iv tried laying with him, putting relaxing music on,rubbing his back and many other things but I just cant get him to sleep, he has "cat Naps" throughout the night no longer than 20 minutes but then he is back up and continues his pacing hours on end . I have made a doctors appt to discuss this and see what might be going on but Im wondering if any other moms have ever dealt with a similar situations and may have some advice on how to help me help him sleep.
