  • Who knows?? Ask your doctor, this doesn't really sound normal. Could be an ear infection, reflux, gas, etc...

  • I daughter use to do that but now she laughs in her sleep. The doctor calls it Night Tremors.

  • My guess would be ear infection or gas. Check with the doctor.

  • Don't let it continue. Call the doctor and let them know all the symptoms.

  • How is she falling asleep? If you're rocking her and then putting her down she may cry when she realises you have put her down. I would def check with her doctor... Our son did this too and it ended up being his acid reflux acting up.
