How to prevent nightmares in infants?

Oh how sad! I'm not sure you can really prevent nightmares though. :( I think if you give our baby lots of loving and make sure they're nice a soothed and calm around bed time, that's the best you can do. I know Lucas kind of whimpers or cries sometimes in his sleep, but I can't do anything. I wouldn't wake him, because then he would just be angry and awake! I just let him wake on his own, even if he has a bad dream. I wish there was some magic blanket you could lay over a sleeping baby for guaranteed good dreams!!!

What do you think, mamas? Is there something that can be done?

    My kids all of them use to have nightmares, while they were asleep and notice they might have a night mare I would normally hold their hand and squeeze it a little bit just enough to help them come out their nightmare. I also gave them B1 which also help with their nightmares.

      I think it's important to be there to comfort and hold them when they have a nightmare. Before my kids go to sleep I hold and snuggle with them, and also sing them a song, then kiss them on the forehead.
