My baby is 2mths old. He squirms a lot while sleeping on his back. He moves his neck from side to side vigorously. What is causing this?

In brief: Normal.

You'll probably notice a lot of weird things when your baby sleeps.
The breathing rate can change, he can cry out for no reason, he can move his head back and forth, side to side, then be still. This is no cause for concern. Lots of babies do this.
