Baby cries in sleep

Last few days during nap and night sleep time baby cries frequently(usually an hour). She doesn't even open her eyes, we have to take her on our shoulder at least 5 minutes then she will sleep for some time and again starts crying. It's not a hunger/diaper/stomach/ear pain. Nap time 90minutes(throughout the day). Night sleep time 6-7 hours (throughout night). Please advice.

Hello there,
I understand your concern. But there is nothing to worry. These are night terrors and dream related to the growing infant. Part of normal behavioural development in every infant.
Usually the child grows out of such occurrence as gets older. Just console the child during the occurrence.
