My 1 year old baby is crying in sleep like he is in pain?

See doctor: See the doctor and see if there is a reason for the crying, like an ear infection or sore throat. If not, then it could be dreaming. I think you should have the possibility of an infection ruled out first. ...Read more

Crying (Definition)

Crying in infancy is described as a loud, high-pitched sound made by infants in response to certain situations. Infants have a cry reflex that is a normal response to some stimuli, such as pain or hunger. Older children and adults cry for emotional reasons such as pain, fear, sadness, or frustration. Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs ...Read more

Almost certainly : Children cry for lots of reasons. The fact that your child cried right away implies that he didn't lose consciousness. If he has no purplish discoloration over the course of the next few hours then I wouldn't worry. If when he awakens he is really irritable and you can't calm him down I would have him see his doc. ...Read more

Why is my baby crying in his sleep?

Why is my baby crying in his sleep?

Variety of issues: I put night issues into context with age, time of night & response to intervention. The 6-9mo may be experiancing separation anxiety & fear you are gone forever- if they are awake when you check & settle when they see you, it fits. The baby that struggles in early sleep & doesn't awaken to light touch may have a night terror. The same scene later pm but awakening quickly can be a nightmare. ...Read more

Routine: Help him by having a routine - same time each night, quieting the house, limiting exposure to TV, possibly a bath and a bedtime story. Set up the expectation that sleep is what happens at that time. When your baby wakes, check in, but try not to pick him up. Keep the room darkened and quiet. Walk away. You need to sleep to be a good mother. He needs to quiet himself - not easy at first. ...Read more

Why my grand baby is jumping in his sleep since he had his 1 year old shots?

Why my grand baby is jumping  in  his sleep since he had his 1 year old shots?

Hard to tell...: "jumping in his sleep" usually means a child moves around a lot in his sleep. That happens in many kids, but can happen more often if he had a rough day (got poked a few times). "since he had his 1 year old shots" doesn't say how long after the shots (1 day, 1 month, 1 year, etc.), so it is hard to tell if anything is related to getting poked. If related, maybe the legs are sore or he is dreaming. ...Read more

No sleep: Try to keep her awake as much as you can during the day, avoid late afternoon naps, I know it is not easy but keep trying eventually she will learn to sleep through the night, be patient, you also try to sleep when she is asleep to get some rest. Good luck & enjoy your baby. ...Read more
