Do babies ever have nightmares?

My 3 MO scared me half to death yesterday!!

I had put her to sleep last night and she had been asleep for about an hour when she let out this blood curling scream of horror and pain that was SO LOUD and like nothing i have ever heard before.

I was cooking dinner so I rushed to her cradle thinking something had bit her or who knows what, but she was just laying there quietly awake and smiled at me.

I dont think she even knew she made the noise and had done it in her sleep but i picked her up anyway and she fell back asleep in seconds.

She was totally fine but my gosh that terrible scream nearly scared me to tears. do babies get nightmares?? do you remember anything like this happening to your babies?

If it just happened once I would not worry about it...
If she does it again,I would talk to a neurologist.
Some babies that have infantile spasms will scream during a seizure...
