  • You mean that little thing at the end? It looks like he burped something up. I wouldn't really be concerned. He is really cute, btw!!

  • To me it just looked like normal behavior, alot of babies do that, I know my three kids did at various stages during that time. He still has some reflexes left, does it happen even when laying down, or just when he is sitting up.

    Sorry mom, but what I saw, the shiver, was normal. Its more of a jerking motion to stay upright and balanced.

    He is soo cute tho..

  • I would relax too, kids do little things like that.....I am supposing you ment that thing he did at the very end of the video?

    Keep a watch on it, but I dont think its anything to be worried about.

  • It is at the very very end of the video, scroll to the last 1:05 and watch from there. It is literally at the end of the video.

  • midnightmomma-Majority of the time he does it while sitting, which is why I thought reflux but the docs said reflux wont do that. I disagree with him becuase if i burp something up i would do that too....
