I was first concerned after watching a TV show which showed a child who was later diagonised with tuberous sclerosis having a seizure. I noticed that my daugter occasionally would do the same thing. Now I have been watching videos of babies having infantile seizures and it is so similar to what she does. She is five weeks old on Wendesday, should I wait until my 8 week check to see the doctor or mention it sooner? What should I ask to be done to confirm either way?

I had the same concerns when my daughter was 5 months old. I video taped her when I thought she was having them and took the videos with me to the doctor. She sent me to take her in for an EEG (brain wave scan) and to follow up with a neurologist. Everything turned out to be ok, but I am the type of person to always check everything out. I would have hated myself if there was something wrong and I didn't do all I could to stop it earlier.
