  • Anytime your gut is telling you anything you should listen to your gut. Take her in to her doc and make them figure out whats going on.

  • I agree.... LISTEN TO YOUR GUT! Definitely take her to her doc. Also keep track of EVERY symptom. When it happens, what happens to her, how long it lasts, etc.....

  • Always go with your maternal instincts. Mothers are just naturally attuned to their children and most pediatricians understand that. Take her to her pediatrician ASAP. I hope all turns out okay for you and your daughter!

  • What is your heart telling you? It sounds like seizures. You need to get that baby to a children's hospital for another doctor to look at her that is trained to deall with those types of medical issues NOW!!!

  • Follow your instincts. I wouldn't just listen to them I'd take her in to see a different doctor.

  • Take her to a doctor, as soon as you can. If they don't help, see another one. Turning blue and not breathing isn't good for anybody, let alone a 4 week old baby, then you add the twitching and eyes rolling back? She needs to be seen. Don't ignore your instinct, and don't take no for an answer. Keep going until you get an answer.

  • I also agree with Krysden- log every time she does it, every detail, and take that with you to the doctor. That will help a lot in diagnosing your baby.
