    Default Strange sleep behaviour

    Occasionally, my DD will do a weird thing while she is sleeping where her breathing changes to a quite fast panting/gasping type breath, and she will whimper/moan/squeal with each breath. It sounds like she's on the verge of tears - but she is fast asleep. It won't wake her either, eventually she'll settle and her breathing will go back to normal. My DD is four months old now but this has happened a few times now (spread out over time, not just all at once). It happened this morning and I was trying to google it to find out what it was but no luck.
    Has anyone else experienced this or know what it is? I'm not too worried at this point, just mystified and would like to be able to give whatever this is a name!

    I always used to say it was that they dream that their milk supply is taken away 😝

    More likely I think maybe they have some wind and it gives them a bit of a cramp.

    I think lots of kids do this actually 😊

    My 2 always used to do this. It's heartbreaking to watch but they were completely fine. I think maybe a bad dream or trapped wind like others have said. Who knows maybe they are remembering their birth haha!

    Glad my little bub isn't the only strange one who does this! I thought it was maybe a dream but then I wasn't sure if babies so young dreamed. But then if she did dream her milk supply ran out it would be very distressing I'm sure, she's always wanting boob 😂

    Haha oh god I hope she's not remembering her birth, it's bad enough that I remember it!
