  • more than likely it is...remember those weird movements when he was in your belly?.. probably more of the same my little boy used to shiver no reason.. and his bottom lip would shake.. he is 12 wks now.. and doesn't do it anymore check with your Dr... better safe than sorry...

  • I would check with your Dr., as they could possibly be mini seizures. If not , then you will feel better anyway.

  • i agree check with a doctor but the other answer is right too they really cant control their movements at this age and sometimes have muscle spasms but check with your doc just to be sure. hope everything turns out alright. :)

  • My dd has always done that, and so does my dh sometimes, their both weird LMAO, who's to say they didn't get a chill from a weird movement or something tickling, etc. Its nothing to worry about I would say, ask your dr. if you are.

  • I KNOW THIS SOUNDS CRAZY BUT MY SON USED TO DO A SHORT SHIVER AND SHAKE THAT WORRIED ME I WAS TOLD HE DID IT EVERYTIMEHE PEED. BUT I DONT KNOW HOW MUCH YOUR CHILD SHAKES AND SHIVERS, I ALSO AGREE YOU SHOULD ASK HIS DOCTOR THERE IS SO MANY SAME AND DIFFERENT SYMPTONS TO SEVERAL THINGS. LIKE SHE SAID IT IS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY, BUT IT COULD BE SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS MY SONS SHIVERS.
