8 wk old screaming in her sleep

This only started after she had her immunisation on Tuesday. She'll be sleeping really peacefully then all of a sudden is screaming. I lift her up see if it's a burp dirty bum all the usuals but nothing seems wrong. Anyone had this? It's starting to worry me

Is she waking up? Is she startling herself -arms flailing? DD went through a phase of that whilst asleep. Or might she have a bit of reflux? DD's silent reflux got worse after her first lot of jabs (it' not uncommon with the rotavirus vaccine)

DS did this and I was so concerned I filmed him thrashing about, in case I needed to go to the doctors! I concluded that he was in active sleep, which is very active at this age.... He eyes would open and shut, arms flailing and head going from side to side. I think the recent imms may be a coincidence, or for the reason the PP said.

No flailing limbs. When i pick her up she looks at me like i woke her up. She does have reflux so maybe that's what it is. Hopefully it passes soon

Immunisations hive dd bad guts for up to a week - perhaps on top of reflux this is what's hurting her?
