I am very interested in this topic too, as this is the soul reason I am on the forum, to try to find out more about this...
My 13 month old daughter cries in her sleep every night (usually within an hour of falling asleep). But no matter how much she cries, she doesn't wake up. Sometimes it's just lite crying and we just sit with her in her room to watch over her.
Other times it's hysterical crying, tears and showing signs of being really upset (not tanrum, upset or hurt like she has fallen over) On these occassions we wake her up to settle her down in case it's a nightmare. (I know I would want to be woken from a nightmare)
I have asked the Doctor and consulted the Internet. All say that its ok. But I find it distressing. I worry that she is having bad dreams. During the day she a very happy, bubbly child. This is the only wierd thing.
I'm new to this mum thing...is this normal? Will it stop? Should I worry or just keep watching over her?
