Twitching Leg

My dd has been doing this since birth. Every once in a while her right leg will sort of twitch. It looks sort of like a muscle spasm - it moves back and forth really fast for a second. It usually happens when she's sleepy. Has anybody else seen this? I didn't think much of it at first, but now I'm starting to worry. Any ideas?

Its totally normal- My lo had that too- she is 3.5 months now and I haven't seen her do that for a long time- Some amount of musle twitching in infants is normal - if it continues when she is several months old I would bring it up to your ped- but for now its fine. Their muscles and nerves are immature so its okay to have a little twitching. Especially when they are falling asleep.

My lo is almost 7 weeks... Do you think she was still doing it then? It's mostly when she's stretching.

Yes she was still doing it occasionaly at 7 weeks. And yeah it was when she was falling asleep or stretching. Its fine.

My DD is 4 weeks old and my family calls her thumper because of it. I never worried about it, I guess it never seemed to be a problem when the doctor was holding her. So I'm a__suming it is normal. But for now I enjoy it and thumper she is.
