I would say he has a nightmare every second or third night. Sometimes every night for a few nights then nothing for a week. Its awful because he wakes up with this high pitched scream and freaks me out! Also I worry he'll wake up his baby sister in the room next door.
Is this normal? Is the frequency of his nightmares normal? Do your kids have nightmares quite frequently? Is there anything you recommend I do to help?

DD2 had nightmares around that age - maybe ~3yo. Was regular and for nights at a time - mainly spiders in her bed, ants in her bed, something crawling on her etc.
We were a little worried about it and had no clue as to how to deal with it - we'd get up to her screams and actively smash at the bed killing all the spiders etc but then we were worried that we were validating that the content of her nightmare was real.
And then it just stopped.
She is still a bit of an unsettled sleeper and occasionally she sleep walks. We can't feed her sugar or sweets incl fruit after ~3pm because we find that it also contributes to her bad sleep. We only found that out by deduction last year.
Sorry, I'm not really any help If you find that it regularly continues, I'd keep a diary of your days/nights activities and foods and see if you detect any trends. Good luck x

Complete placebo but it worked for her.
Good luck. We haven't hit that stage just yet here- let us know how you go.
