My baby has been diagnosed with reflux and they told me that it's really important to burp her. But how do you know that you've Burped her enough and that she has no more wind left?

It could be that something is bothering him like gas or who knows babies might have bad dreams! Usually in my case when my baby cried in his sleep he was hungry or had gas.

My son whined in his sleep as well as made other noises all night and I learned that it is normal for preemies to do that. Now at 11 months old he just snores!

My son, who is 4 four months old, randomly starts crying in his sleep. Sometimes the crying is followed by passing gas so I think it may be due to gas or maybe he has little nightmares.

My daughter is now 1 but she constantly cries and makes whining noises in her sleep. It drives me crazy b/c it makes me think something is wrong with her.

Both my preemies were different, my first one didn't ever do that. But my second, who spend 4 months in the NICU did. The first few times I flew out of bed in the middle of the night convinced there was something wrong only to find him sound asleep. The only saving grace is for a preemie it's normal and my son did grow out of it.

My little girl would cry in her sleep also. The question is how long has he been home. I never noticed in the hospital but when she came home I noticed. The Dr. told me that it was normal and that we never noticed it before because the NICU is so loud. I hope this helps make you feel a little better. If you are really concerened call you ped. and ask they will settle you worry.
