My daughter does this really weird thing...

When she's asleep, she'll be wrapped up real tight (she can't sleep if she's unwrapped, lol) so that just her arms are tight against her. Her legs are free for her to kick about, but when she's sleeping sometimes she lifts her legs up and practically slams them down...it makes a lot of noise and wakes me up but it doesn't seem to wake her up or hurt her at all.
Is this weird, or does anyone here have a baby who does this as well?

  • My son did that until he was about 2 or 3 month old, lol. He didn't need his arms pinned down but he would stick his legs straight into the air and slam them down, lol. It made me wonder what people meant when they said they slept like a baby.....haha

  • My 3month old does the same thing at night and i noticed that he does it when his legs have a blanket on them. After he knocks them off he goes right on back to sleep! I think it's so funny
