His dr appt is thurse and ill bring it up then but i just wonder if anyone here knows. He was premature if that matters. It does this randomly throughout the day and last about 30 secs. I asked early but didnt get much help.

  • My daughter did that for four months. The doctor just told me she would grow out of it. She is 11 months now and doesnt do it. I just chalked it off as her growing. He should be growing out of it soon.

  • Make sure you take a video of your baby for your doctor to see because inevitably she won't do it at the doctor's office. At least that always seems to be the case at the doctor's office with me. My first thought would be seizures BUT I certainly have no idea and it is only a thought.

  • my son did that for a while too. Get a video of it and bring it up to doc. With my son it was nothing if that helps :) good luck

  • Your babys nervous system is still developing and that is what causes the twitching. With my son it was his arms that would do that. I freeked out but the doctor told me that was nothing to worry about. He is 4 months old now and hasnt done it for about a month now. But bring it up to your doctor if you are still worried about it.
