Just wondering if any of your babies cry while they are sleeping. Last night Sebastian was sleeping and crying so badly he couldnt catch his breathe. I couldn't wake him up, when I tried to wake him up he would cry harder.  I just rocked him and cryed myself :(  It was so emotionally exhausting not to know why he was upset. I know he was really tired but Is this normal?

Chloe has done this 4-5 times in the last month. Though her crying episodes don't sound quite as violent as yours.. From what I researched there could be a lot of reasons - teething, gas, hunger, wanting comfort from you, or nightmares even? I don't know what the cause is...but I just hold her and whisper to her until it passes.

Sophie hasn't done that yet, but my son did every now and then. And when he got a little older, sometimes he'd wake up really freaked out and disoriented. It's most likely just nightmares, but it's definitely normal.

Can infants actually have nightmares? What kinda of nightmares could they have? He did seem really disoriented, like awake but not there... it was really freaky.

I don't know if there's any way to tell what sort of nightmares they can have, but they definitely can have them.

Abigail does something kind of like that, usually when she's just fallen asleep and I startle her a little or when she's kind of waking up but not really ready to. Usually she's soothed by patting her back or her tummy (depending on which way she's laying) but sometimes she'll just cry for a couple of minutes.
