Noisy sleeper

My 5 week/almost 6 week old baby grunts and "growls" and makes lots of noise in her sleep. Sometimes I the noises are even what wakes her. Does anyone else have this problem or a solution? She's in her own room and I play soft music during her sleep.

It's normal. She will grow out of it.

My LO sleeps in a crib in our room and keeps me awake a lot with her grunts and growls. She squirms and squeaks, and will even babble, but seems go to to sleep again. She's 8 1/2 weeks now, and I'm hoping she grows out of it. I read somewhere that babies have more REM sleep and it's a lighter sleep, but young children sleep deeper like adults.
