Sleeping with arms up

Hey everyone! Not sure if anyone else experienced this with their baby but for whatever reason my daughter sleeps with her arms sticking straight up into the air. She's been doing this since she was born (she's only 2 months) and I'm not particularly concerned about it but was wondering if this is normal or if there's any reasoning behind it that anyone knows of?

It’s Normal, my little boy used to do it when he was a newborn and he stopped doing it as soon got older.

Lol that’s so funny! I have no advice since I’ve never seen it but I bet it’s fine. And I also want to share A picture of my daughter when she was a baby, sleeping funny.

This may not help. But I did that as a baby/kid, and STILL do it now. It’s so random. My husband has photos of me sound asleep with one arm straight up in the air. No idea how or why I do it😂

As others have said ,its the startle reflex. Does your baby sleep well? If not, consider swaddling. The startle reflex eakes them up but swaddling, although it feels mean, does wonders to keep them sleeping and you rested!! We were so pleased once we realised the benefits and did this with our first! We are doing the this with our 2nd much earlier!
