Do Babies Have Nightmares?

In 3 more days KoKo will be 11 months old. My how time flies. It seems like only yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. Because she is so spoiled..oops I meant so well-loved, she still sleeps in the bed with mommy and daddy.

Last night everyone was in the bed sleeping soundly and all of a sudden I was awaken by a loud cry. KoKo was crying in her sleep. So I just rubbed her back and whispered in her ear mommy was there and everything was alright and she went right on back to sleep.

When we woke up this morning refreshed my husband said to me, “do you think she was having a nightmare?” That question got me wondering do babies have nightmares and if they do what are they having nightmares about?

Have you ever experienced sudden burst of crying during the middle of the night with your infant? How often does it happen?

When we woke up this morning she was her happy, talking self. But I still wonder what caused her to cry like that during the night.

I guess I will really never know.
