    Default Random question...

    Is it possible for a nearly 2 week old to get night terrors?? My DD olny makes sounds when she's asleep and its not like crying or anything. It's really hard to explain what it sounds like actually.

    Like grunting? Newborns can be very noisy in their sleep

    DS always made noises in his sleep for the first few months... Kinda like he was trying to clear his throat

    Definitely loud sleepers! DD used to do random screams, loud enough to wake DH and I up, but she'd be fast asleep.

    Not like grunting, more like a whining sound and the occasional random single cry.

    Totally normal for newborns. It happens in their "active sleep" when they also twitch and grimace and sometimes even open their eyes. Some babies are noisier than others!

    In response to OPs question, no newborns don't get night terrors. Their sleep patterns are too immature. Night terrors typically happen straight after a period of deep "slow wave" sleep and are often at the same time each night. They tend to start in the toddler years if they are going to and there is often a family history.
