Is there something wrong here? I am a bit worried because my dad died of brain cancer early in my second-tri, and it was a really hard time for me personally. I'm wondering if my baby experienced some sort of emotional trauma due to my grief and it is playing out in his dreams. Or are these reactions during sleep normal?
I do wonder what they think though.
I have heard that babies whose mothers were very anxious or depressed during pregnancy (especially untreated) tend to be more fussy, but it sounds like your little one is doing just fine!
My DS will also cry out in his sleep but as soon as I touch him he relaxes. It makes sense that it would be when changing sleep cycles. He used to do it more often when a newborn but even now he will occasionally go from sleeping and looking peaceful to a cry, I touch him and tell him momma is here and he seems to go into a deeper sleep.
