  • It looks kind of like he just got a little chill up his spine. Hard to really see, it was sideways.

  • Yeah, it looks like a reflex or a little chill to me. He is a cutie! It's perfectly normal for you to worry when you think there could be something wrong with your baby. Good for you for trying to get more opinions, better safe than sorry when it comes to our little ones!

  • Yeah my son used to do that too. He either just had a shiver cause he was chilled or it was a muscle spasm. He should grow out of it.

  • Too cute! Didn't look all that odd to me. I agree with the chill theory as long as your doctor isn't worried, I wouldn't worry.

  • Looks perfect to me!
    He's still new at this little body he's in so random muscle spasms and jerks are normal. It could be from being a little tired too.

    I know when I'm getting tired or on the verge of sleep my leg will sometimes jerk or kick on it's own. Lol!
