  • I believe its normal, are you completely sure its in-voluntary?

  • Yep - normal. It's the nervous system developing.

  • Yes. Our son did the same thing and it would freak me out.. It was probably around 12 weeks when he stopped doing it. If you're concerned though, a call or visit to the doctor might ease your mind.

  • Dont be concerned, my son is 4 months old and I remember him doing the same thing at almost diaper change. It freaked me out when I first noticed but it didnt last long.
