Is it normal for a 2 month old to randomly cry in his sleep?

My son was sleeping this morning and he let out this piercing cry but there was only one and he went right back to sleep. I was curious if this is normal for a baby so young?

  • Apparently it is. My DS did this too and I got all kinds of worried. I thought he was having nightmares or something. Maybe it's growing pains. Or the fact that their central nervous system is still developing and can cause random things to happen. Don't worry about it. It goes away pretty quickly.
