My 4 month old screamed in his sleep last night. It scared my fiance and I. He never woke up but continued to whimper afterwards. Is he just dreaming?

That's what I thought but I guess he just needed to hear it from someone else, lol. Thanks ladies!

it could also be growing pains or teething my daughter does the the first night that she has started a growth spurt and she whimpers in her sleep when her teeth are bothering her

My son did that starting around that age and sometimes he would cry and other times he would be laughing hysterically. It freaked me out at first but then I got use to it. He is now 3 1/2 and now he talks a lot in his sleep and sometimes about the oddest things. It's funny!! I don't think you have anything to worry about at this point.

i believe it was just a dream my daught would cry and then after whimper and still some nights she will sit up and cry and i go look and she is sound asleep and she is now 14 months old so i believe they are just dreaming she don't do it all the time but she does every now and then. she now sits up and laughs in her sleep too then lays back down b/c i will watch to see what she does when she sits up and laughs or makes any noises and the whole time she is doing this she is sleeping

i believe so, babies can dream in the womb so its not suprising to think they can outside of it, did something happen that previous day? has it happened again?
