  • Yes - many babies fuss in their sleep when they are moving from one stage of sleep to another.

  • Yes, she sure did. It was heart breaking to watch, but it was kind of cute at the same time. She still whimpers in her sleep & she is 9 now.

  • Is it after you have fed him?? If so, it could be acid reflux which my son had. Treatable by liquid form of Tagamat for children.

  • I agree it is sad but cute at the same time :) He will do it almost anytime during the day when he naps. I didn't know if he was having bad dreams or what. I feel helpless when he does it. When I would pick him up he still seems like he is asleep... comforting to know it happens not just to my son.. Thank You Ladies

  • My grown boys did that all the time too. My now 5 1/2 month does it every once in a while. I thought he was awake and crying for feeding or something but my pediatrician has said if he stays asleep then it is baby night mares/dreams/tremors in his sleep and it is very normal.
