Tremors Trembling

My DD is 7 1/2 months old. Within the last month I noticed her getting the "chills" - you know - like when you shiver and get goosebumps - it's brief - like in an adult - but weird to see it in an infant. I never remember any of my friends children doing it, but it was few and random - so I brushed it off. Well now they are becoming more frequent and starting to worry me. I asked her doctor about them and she said it was normal. Of course I started looking on the internet and found Cerebral Palsy and other ailments I wish I didn't know about. Please tell me that this is normal and not to worry!!!

If she does it when it is cold, then I am sure it is normal. But, I am sorry to say I have 3 kids and none of them have done that unless they were cold. If it is happen more often and it is not cold maybe have her seen by a neurologist, insist on a referal from your Dr.

I just noticed my dd do that the other day. She's only 10 weeks. It just looked like she got the chills. If she keeps doing it a lot, I'd mention it to the doctor again, but I wouldn't worry too much. And DON'T research stuff like that on the internet. You'll drive yourself crazy!

Dear Janny My dd is 61/2 months and she has been doing that for like 2 weeks now ... I sooo know she is not cold as the weather here is so warm and I had been paying more attention to this and I noticed that she does it exclusively when she is super exited about something or is mad or MOSTLY bveacause she wants to grab something but is still lacking some pressision , so I figured it is normal I believe she is doing it to express herself , maybe her coordination is not as good as she would expect and her brain is trying to demand mor from her ... well thats what I believe ... I think that you should not worry , maybe try to notice when and why is she doing this ... Dh that is super suuuper alarmed looked it up on the web¨and found that it could be LACK OF CALCIUM , come on they just eat MILK , and probably lack os sun ... well good luck and just be calm , these are different stages that babies go thru , she is just doing something normal ... you´ll see it will go away , my dd is getting her getting better pressision by the minute and she is amost pa__sed it ... xoxoxo andrea

My dd (7.5 mo) does this also...I notice it mostly when I'm feeding her or changing her diaper. I have a feeling it could be either right before or after she goes potty. My girlfriend's little boy used to do this and she called it the "pee pee chills". I don't know if thats it or not, but I've heard of a lot of babies doing this.

Whew!! Thanks for all of your responses. I am still worried but not as upset. I do pay attention to when it happens - but like I said - it is so random so I can't tie it to anything specific. Where we live it's relatively warm - so I know that she is not cold. We will be seeing the doctor in a few weeks - so I will definitely bring it up again!! Thanks so much!!!!!!!

I don't notice it throughout my lo's body but his teeth kind of chatter occasionally like he has the chills. Doesn't happen often but he does do it.

My ds does it all the time. My mom thinks it's when he pees - like alida said. My dh has the chills a lot we didn't think anything of it when we saw the baby doing it. i don't think it's anything to worry about - and i second what Jess said - do NOT look it up on the internet
