Does your baby

Tense his arms up and make them shake? My DS is 9 months and just started doing this. It doesnt seem to bother him I was wondering if its just a game to him or if its something I should be conserned about? He has JUST started shaking his head back and forth like he is saying no with his head but he makes himself dizzy is this normal AND one more thing... Sometimes he flutters his eyes... All these things together are starting to worry me. Im not sure if they're just "baby things" or if I should be worried???

  • If you are concerned, call the pediatrician's office and see what they tell you. Good luck and hope everything works out for the best for you and your family.

  • My daughter would shake her arms like that when she was excited. When I turned on music and stuff like that. She still does it occasionally, but not as often anymore.
