My 7 year old daughter has always slept well .....
..until 2 weeks ago.
Since school started, she falls asleep fine, but wakes up 2 or 3 times worried about bugs. She says her legs are tingling and feels like bugs are on them.
During summer vacation she slept with me alot and since school started she's back in her own room.
We have night lights in her room, I've left the lights on for her, I told her since the house is new & we just moved in it 3 months ago the builder sprayed 3 times for bugs, told her I sprayed for bugs, her dad gave her a small spray bottle with what she thinks is bug spray for her to spray her bed when she wakes in the middle of the night ....... I crawl in bed with her,, sing her lullabies, I have taught her to take deep breaths & think nice thoughts .......
All she wants is to sleep with me, which I won't let her do during school year. She's allowed Fridays. I don't sleep well when she sleeps with me..........not that I'm sleeping well now!!!!!!!
HELP! This lack of sleep & interrupted sleep hurts!
Thank you!

Do you have a helpfull dog or cat who would 'eat' the bugs before they get into the house?

This works with my dd2 and her warewolfs. They can't possibly eat her in her sleep because our Terrier thinks warewolfs are yummy and eats them as soon he smells them. He is very good at smelling out warewolves, so they all stay away from our house incase Scruffy eats them.
