Hello all,

Our beautiful 3-month old did something really odd today. He woke up from a nap crying really, really hard. We got to him within seconds, but he was quite inconsolable for several minutes. I tried nursing and he wasn't hungry. We walked him around the house a bit and eventually he did calm down.

DP then went to change his diaper, and then he really lost it. He was positively shrieking, sounding as if he were either frightened to death or in pain. Yet there was nothing wrong. Eventually, dp took him out on the patio and he calmed right down.

Has this ever happened to you? If so, was there anything actually wrong? We are concerned because this morning, he also cried very suddenly and hard during a diaper change as well.

Poor little buddy!

Thank you so much for your replies!

There's something so reassuring about knowing that other parents have had similar experiences. We'll definitely call our doctor if it happens again. It's just so unusual for him; he's an incredibly good-tempered baby, and he rarely cries at all. Seeing him just lose it was just heartbreaking.

We hadn't thought about dreaming; that sounds like the most plausible explanation. The other thing we thought of is he does this weird stretching thing, where he arches his back and neck way back all the time; we thought maybe he did it in his sleep and pinched a nerve or something. Who knows. They're such a mystery at this age!


Thanks again,
