Sometimes She Cries


Little One has been a champion sleeper for as long as I can remember. For some reason, in the past few nights, she has been crying in her sleep. When I go into her room to check on her, she's still asleep. She just seems to cry this really heartbreaking kind of cry and it makes me so sad.

The first time it happened, I didn't know she was still sleeping when she was crying. I thought she woke up in the middle of the night, so when she didn't stop crying, I picked her up and cuddled her. I woke her up and she looked really terrified. I am never doing that again!

She normally goes to bed at 9PM and wakes up at 9AM, but the past two nights have been bad for her crying/weeping in her sleep.

Why is she crying??? I wonder what's going on. Is she dreaming? If so, I wonder what babies dream about? Do they have nightmares? Is she in pain? Poor thing. :(

Oh that must be so heartbreaking!
If only she could just tell you what she's dreaming about.

Poor baby. :( Is she still teething? As she develops, her imagination might be growing as well. She might be having nightmares, or she might be teething. I don't know that there's anything you can do. But yeah, poor thing.

Yes, it is sooooooo sad. :( Truly heartbreaking! I wanted to pick her up and give her a cuddle, but I didn't want to wake her up from her dream. I've been told to never wake up a person when they're in the middle of a nightmare.

She's STILL teething. The crazy thing is that she has been working on those chompers FOREVER and they still haven't cut! Poor kid!

I wonder if it was teething or bad dream?

It was only yesternight when I heard him talking at 03.45, saying words like Papa, Mama or Ya-Ya (Greek for Grandma) with eyes closed and deep asleep.
Guess we'll never know what they do see within their dreams, maybe even shouldn't, as it is a far too great mistery to witness, unable to sleep after.
Stefan did cry as well a couple of times, either due to teeths or dreams - somewhere I did read, that one shouldn't wake them up while dreaming,don't know for sure yet...
All the very best for you all and most of all happy dreams.
