Leg Twitching?

My dd is 4months old and I was wondering if this is something to be worried about.. When she is sitting in my lap or laying in front of me and pushes on my hand or leg with her feet her leg will twitch rapidly? Is that normal? She has her well child checkup Thursday and i'll ask about it, but just wanted to get ur opinion?

  • I don't have any advice bu that would concern me too. For sure bring it up to the Dr Thursday. I don't think it is normal.

  • My son's leg would twitch every now and then(once or twice a week maybe) until he was 3-4 months old. My pediatrician told me that it was normal and that the twitching was just his nervous system "maturing". I would definitely ask about it though, especially if it is happening a lot.
