This morning while I was feeding Jesse he fell a sleep in the crook of my arm,the moment he fell a sleep his right hand started shaking/trembling and then it went to his upper body,I woke him up right away and it was gone.He has been fine ever since.He did this one time before about 2 weeks ago.It didn't seem to bother him but it is scaring the h__l out of me.Any idea what this is....is it beginning of seizures? I don't know.

All I can think of is it is an involuntary muscle spasm. Sometimes lucas's lower lip still quivers like it di as a newborn. I would call the nurse line and ask, but my docs never think anything is wrong. It would definitely freak me out though! I hope he is just fine!

I agree, you should have it checked out, but my son does the same thing and the doctor says it is because his nervous system is not yet fully developed- he is 4 weeks old. Anyway, just check it out for your own piece of mind.

Let us know. Sometimes my lil guys foot and lower leg will do that. Im curious

Dawn C,Jesse is almost 5 months,but when he was a couple weeks old he did the same thing you are talking about,it looked like how a cat shakes its leg when its wet,I went to our doc for that and it happens more often on newborns,it is b/c of their nervous system being immature,at least I know the answer tp your question.Now this I really don't know,he is fine,and like I said he did it about 2 weeks ago,I thought it was an involuntary muscle spasm too,but now I have my doubts.I will call the doc tomorrow and see what they think.I will let you ladies know,....I was just hoping to have more similar experiences but I guess not.
