my daughter is 2.5 months and has done this too, probably around 4-6 weeks (and was also in the NICU briefly, for what it's worth). Once the crying continued, and once she shrieked in her sleep and then fell back asleep. I could only chalk it up to dreaming, or "night terrors" - I read somewhere that kids' brains can get stuck somewhere in between sleep cycles and it makes them short circuit into night terrors, I'm not sure how scientific that is, but my nephew had them for several years, but not when he was so young. Anyway I thought that for my dd it was probably a dream, and she was fine afterward, and it hasn't happened again.
