The shakes

My 7th month old shakes way too much. It looks like he's excited and his arms just keep shaking. He also kick his legs non stop. He stops once we pick him up. Is this normal.

  • It sounds like what my DD does. It sort of looks like she is trying to fly.

  • my cousin's son did this and their doc told her to make him stop because their brain is not fully developed yet and it's really bad for their head. What her son did was everytime they were holding him and his feet was on the ground his hand and feet would shake or he tried to make jumpy movements.

  • yeah,

    I think it's normal because the baby have to get use to his or her motor skills or either you drunk alot of caffien
