How do I know if my son has restless leg syndrome?

My son is about to be a yr. old && every time he drinks a bottle, he fidgets his legs wildly. Same when it comes to diaper changes. We try to keep him still && he freaks out. It's starting to become a serious problem.

  • My son is 6.5 mo old but he moves like nuts...his legs don't stop. When I change him he is really hard to change b/c he moves a lot.

  • Sounds more like a wiggle worm than restless leg syndrome. If he is having trouble falling asleep because he wants to keep moving his legs then I might talk to his doctor about it.... but I don't think babies usually have this condition.
