Doea anyones newborn shake?

My one month old has been shaking her legs really bad since day one. When I asked the nurse she said it was just because new babies have weak nervous systems, that it takes a while for them to get strong. That was when she was a week old now she's a month and she still does it. My 4-year-old never did it so I am getting concerned.

  • I thought my daughter had a nervous tick when she was about 2-4 months old- she would randomly kick her one leg- it freaked me out for a bit, she grew out of it though.

  • Mine does. They told me the same thing. Her whole body shakes and her eyes roll. My other to didnt do it either. And they re 2 and 1 so it wasnt that long ago they were babies. She is a wk old and she does it at least a few times a day.

  • My nephew does this on a regular basis until he was at least 2 months.
