    So this used to freak me out at first but now I know it could be a couple of different things. My niece sometimes makes crying sounds in her sleep, which used to get me worried. As it turns out, it could be a bunch of things going on in that pretty little head of hers. These include, she might be dreaming (weird right?), in need of a diaper change or sometimes, though rare, might be sick.

    Crying is the only way of communication for toddlers. A baby can also cry while sleeping because of hunger. Try to breastfeed the baby and see what happens. Other times it could be the baby is struggling between waking up and sleeping. Maybe the baby has not fully woken up and you just need to give him or her time. It is very normal and nothing to worry about.

    In our culture old folks say that a baby that is crying in sleep is having a nightmare. You should take the baby from the crib to give it some caressing as if to assure that nothing is wrong. Maybe there is truth to that because I believe that babies also have their dreams.
