Infant Noises in Sleep

Infant Noises in Sleep

Normal Sleep Sounds Newborn babies make noises when they breathe for the same reason adults do; some bit of mucus or dried milk is partially blocking a breathing passage. If you can’t bear the noise, use a baby-size nasal aspirator to suction out the blockage. Your baby might make a gurgling sound when he’s trying to clear his throat or gasp after a brief pause in breathing. You might also hear whimpers, laughs, cries or yells, the baby equivalent of sleep-talking

Newborn Breathing Newborn babies breathe through their noses, which allows them to eat and breathe at the same time. As tiny as their noses are, the air passages inside them are even smaller, and little particles of mucus can further constrict them, causing those crazy grunts, whistles and squeaks.

Dream, Dream, Dream Babies move rapidly through sleep cycles and spend more than half their night in the REM stage, the period of light, active sleep in which we dream. Those dream phases might produce grunts, along with fleeting cries, laughs and other “sleep-talking” sounds. Babies also wake briefly at the end of each REM cycle and may make a bit of noise before settling back to sleep.
