Newborn nightmares

My 2 week old keeps having what appear to be nightmares in her sleep. She will suddenly start breathing heavily or cry out and seem slightly distressed. It has been pretty much since birth. We are not sure why or if it is something we should be worried about. Does anyone have experience of this or know if it is normal? At 2 weeks old we aren't sure what could be causing it.

Night terrors probably the most likely cause. Unless it looks like a convulsion which could also be epilepsy.

Is it about an hour and a half after feeding? Might be reflux/silent reflux.
