1.Withered Corpse

Seeing a dead body at an early age can be quite alarming and being held by one is even scarier. If a child has never been to a funeral before, then a nightmare like this could possibly alter their perception of dead people. Of course a decaying corpse could look like this, but a child wouldn't be able to understand the difference.
