    "Sleep well" vs " Sleep tight"

    Hi,

    Is there any difference between the meaning of the following:

    1. Sleep well.
    2. Sleep tight.
    3. Sweet dreams.

    Is there any other expression to say the same.

    Thanks in advance

    Zuhair

    #2 is more likely to be said to a child, I feel; possibly #3 as well. #1 can be said to anybody.
