Why Is My Toddler Crying In Her Sleep
Discomfort/Fear: We all cry for similar reasons: fear, discomfort, and hunger. If you know your baby's tummy is full, the most common reasons are teeth or bad dreams (depending on their age). What can you do about bad dreams? Not much. But, teething can be helped with some Ibuprofen before bedtime. I also would check your baby's diaper, clothes, and bed to make sure that there is nothing causing them discomfort. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cry in sleep: Infants go through different stages of sleep at night just as adults do, just different amounts of time in different stages. In certain stages of sleep, people often make noise - talking, grunting, etc. A baby's communication is crying - so it is there way of talking in their sleeep. The trick is not to respond right away - if you touch/jostle etc they may wake up. Let alone to keep sleeping! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Very often children end up more interested in simple household items or silly things like empty water bottles than they are the expensive toys we buy them. This is nothing to be concerned about as long as your baby is interested in exploring her environment and playing with the objects around her. If you have any concerns about your child's development, contact your pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 3month old son has nightmares constant. He cries and starts panicing in his sleep. Is this normal?
Three year old cries in her sleep and sometimes wakes up crying but wont say why she's crying and now she doesn't want to sleep in her bed. ?
She may not know: If your daughter does not wake immediately when you touch her she is in the midst of a "night terror", an anomaly of sleep like sleep walking. If she wakes immediately it is a nightmare & she will remember specifics.Night terrors occur in deeper sleep & kids have no memory of them.If you shake her awake you likely frighten her. Helping her get as little as 1/2 hr more sleep/d can stop the events. ...Read more
Yes: Babies will twitch while in the rem (rapid eye movement) phase of sleep. Babies may also flutter their eyes beneath their eyelids or seem to startle during sleep. Twitching of the face or jerking of the arms and legs during sleep is something the baby will grow out of. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 4yr old has been having night terrors. If i hear her screaming / crying in her sleep should I wake her up when this is happening ?
Observe: The kids with night terrors are often sleep deficient and enter deep sleep state like sleep walkers.Kids with nightmares will waken immediately to light touch, night terrors do not and you should let it run its course.

It depends.: If he's not having episodes where he chokes or stops breathing, and if you change his position and the snoring stops, it may be ok. The best thing to do would be to do audio and video recording (even on your cellphone) while he's snoring, and bring him and the recording to his doctor for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 3 months baby refuses to sleep in her bed, the only way she sleeps is in her carseat even at night.Can this be harmful for her developement?
I see no problem: The kid may actually be self selecting a position that helps her deal with heartburn/reflux that can be common when babies lay down. After 5-6 mo this should be less of a problem & you may be able to get baby back into a bed. At this point just do what you need to get through the day / night ...Read more
Week old baby spits up in her sleep so i worry about her being flat on back. Is it okay for her to sleep in her swing that is slightly inclined?
Back is best: Babies who spit up will turn their head automatically. An incline of several degrees is ok, but too much incline leads baby to angle perpendicular to how they lay down.Swings that suspend a newborn baby can lead to airway compromise and suffocation during sleep as babies head drops to one side. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
