My one month old will thrash around, move his head side to side, grunt, sometimes make choking sounds, and wave his hands and legs all while sleeping. Sometimes it will last as long as 30 seconds and then he'll calm himself, and be back to peaceful sleeping. This goes on and keeps me and my husband awake for hours. Is this a phase, is something wrong?Answer Question

Do you swaddle? Babies up to about 4mos. usually really like being swaddled because it makes them feel safe and cozy like when they were in the womb. It could also be that he has gas. Newborns have under-develolped digestive systems and they get pretty gassy, which can affect their sleep. The baby gas drops usually help.
