Why is she twitching?

My dd is 21 months old. Sometimes I'll be watching her and she just stops and kinda zones out for about 3 seconds and snaps right back to normal. When she zones it looks like she twitches a little bit. It's wierd and I don't remember my oldest doing that. Is it normal?? What is going on?

  • If your that concerned listen to your gut.. if it seems extra strange... make sure you tell your Dr.... buttt it could very well be just an immature nervous system.

  • Does she only do it at certain times... could she be sleepy? What part of her is twitching? I space out sometimes when I'm tired or thinking about something... and I've always been something of a space cadet. :) But listen to your gut - if you want to talk to a doctor about it, try to video tape her doing this so you can actually show them what is going on. A visual can make the diagnosis much easier.

  • Thanks! It doesn't seem to happen at certain times but I'll start watching more closely and keep a log or something... Video taping it is a good idea too.
