Nightmares in infants?


Oh my God! My son will be 8 weeks old tomorrow and he just had a nightmare or a night terror! He was laying on the bed beside me sleeping and he suddenly started screaming and crying so loud in his sleep. Out of our instinct, I grabbed him and comforted and kissed him. He just kept whimpering after he woke up. He has never screamed or cried so loudly before!

Is this normal? What could he be dreaming about that is so terrifying?
