  • Possibly. I wouldn't worry unless he wakes up. Then just care for him as you normally would when he wakes. My grandson was crying in his sleep a few nights ago...then in a few minutes he was laughing hysterically, still in his sleep. No doubt he was dreaming.

  • My kids did that too... No idea why, but they did. It's normal though.

  • It could be a dream or maybe a gas bubble.

  • My guess is stomach ache/gas. Do the bicycle leg thingy or lay him on your knees to try and get all the gas out.

  • My daughter did that. I would not worry too much.

  • It's okay he's just having horrifying nightmares about being pushed through a REALLY tiny hole. All normal. :-) j/k it's normal your child is fine.

  • My guess is gas....its a pretty good guess at 2 weeks. When he is a little older, I'd say nightmares or teething. You never really know. Just be grateful it isn't waking him up!

  • At two weeks I would think it is probably gas or some other digestive issue (wet or dirty diaper. My kids made wierd crying sounds in their sleep too. Frightening isn't it.
